Btw, we’ve got a couple of X-flares inbound.
Yeah wow I surprised to learn that lekima was still going...lol but the storm hitting them now is francisco or something like that.
Lekima nor any hurricane gave them super typhoon winds though.
thanks,i was cleaning up after the animals. wow. i read two different depths on the global incident map.
Now this is how the Philippine quake should have looked like on the ARRAY
Japan was chosen because the IOC noted that while Istanbul is a nice place - and it is - Istanbul lacks the infrastructure for an Olympic Games; they would’ve had to build 70% of the venues, whereas Tokyo has the infrastructure more or less in place.
At least, until either Fukushima goes totally pear-shaped and leaves the east coast of Japan an uninhabitable nuclear wasteland, or Godzilla shows up.
Which at the rate things are going, and thanks to TEPCO’s utter incompetence, is a distinct possibility.
Nuclear energy is so safe. It’s completely safe!
wonder if they are telling the truth this time?
Good advice even when not about tsunamis.
Japan Meteorological Agency:
How this one was felt across Japan:
The intensity dots are linked such that you can keep zooming in on the reports at their individual source locations.
While this one was well off-shore and not felt too strongly on Honshu and Hokkaido, the "big one" of 2011 was preceded [by only a day or two] by several strong off shore EQs, a couple of them 7+.
I doubt it...lol
No the quake was mild on shore...thanks to it being on the Pacific Plate.
But the situation needs to be watched for sure.
The magnitude has been fixed as 6.8 to 7.1 per the latest Japanese information so massive may be an overstatement. I was there for the 2011 disaster and the shaking went on for at least 30 seconds. Even well above the ground that was truly terrifying.
I was always told to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. ;) The USGS most of the time downgrades EQs for some reason?
Since the Philippine quake occurred between two plates, kind of isolating it, that might be the reason for the low seismic levels you saw?
Fine here (Chiba).. was low-mid level for me).. lasted about 2 minutes. Started as a small tremble, them worked it’s way up. I don’t think more than a 5 from here.
I am on high ground, so I shouldn’t have to worry about a tsunami.. Ronen may though..
(We are going through a typhoon at the same time, pray for the people hardest hit (up north again)).
We knew it was coming.
Here in the South Bay of Los Angeles, there have been two recent unusual fish sightings in the last week. Twice, oar fish have been found. They are deep water fish that, according to Japanese tradition, are typically only seen when there is going to be an earthquake.
There is a lot of practical wisdom hidden in old stories from the days when people paid closer attention to natural clues.
I can believe it 19,000 perished. Stay safe as possible FRiend!
Yeah I would say you are correct.
The Array Lit up on this one like it should.
Actually global cooling increased the Pacific ocean density such that the point pressure per square kilometer off japan induced the quake.
Fine here. Just a rattle or two. Didn’t even wake up the missus. Tsunami warning is in effect for Chiba and the coast, including Fukushima, but it should be a small one. If the defenses have been repaired, no danger to the reactors, let’s all pray on that point.
Wow, just checked space weather. thanks
seems like it always happens that way!
So, the inverse occured which was, per algore, percipitated by glow-bull warming. You can’t escape it and you know it. LOL! Sky was really dark here last night. Glow-bull warming.
We are worried about the spent fuel pool of reactor 4, which is way off the ground and held together by duct tape.
5.3 aftershock...seems like a normal process.
Too early yet to tell how much of the CME will hit earth, but something to be aware of. ;)
Shaking (2011) went on for almost a full 2+ minutes.. and a constant vibration for over 11 hours.. I know, I am still here :p
looks like a lively bunch of sunspots
thanks, the aussie feed still has this at 7.6 and 55 km deep.
those darn computers
Indeed! More activity than has been seen in some time.
Looks more and more like beached oarfish equals major earthquake/tsunami to follow soon.
Good to hear, my friend.. It wouldn’t have stirred me up much either, I am so used to them.. but I happened to be awake ;)
Were the hanger swinging much? ;^)
My monitors have been on the table so long, they may as well be welded.. They shook a bit, but never budged (of course, this isn’t like the 2011 one either.. lost 2 monitors that day :/).
perhaps we are getting the second peak of the sun cycle?
i’ll have to ask algore (snicker)
Well that was an hour North of Tokyo, I was sidelined from the brunt of the adventure, but could be selective memory too. :)
Just glad that all of us made it out ok.. I know of several FReepers that live here like me, and they were my first concern. Thankfully almost all checked in within about 12 hours. Also have a friend (not FReeper) That lives on a farm in Sendai with his wife and her parents (and their 3 kids).. he was just out of reach of the tsunami, thank God.
Any ground shaking in your neighborhood?
Plus they don’t have to worry about looters.
This link takes you to the WSA-Enlil solar wind prediction model. Earth is the green dot on the right. They’re showing at least two significant spikes over the next few days, plus one today that I heard knocked out radio communications for 15 mins today in parts of the world. The two predicted to arrive in a few days are a bit stronger than the one today.
LOL, and don’t forget Obamacare! Looks like it’s going to be worse than what mother nature can throw at us... :-)
Plus they dont have to worry about looters.
