I work on top of the epicenter for the '93 Northridge Earthquake . . . all calm here.

What does the graph tell you about the probable intensity?

If I lived near San Francisco, I'd be rooting against the Giants and the A's about now.

You've got this today, too...

QUITO (AFP) Oct 03, 2002 The Tungurahua volcano, in the center of Ecuador, which has been erupting for almost a year, had a spectacular explosion of gases, ash and water Wednesday, according to geophysicists here.

The explosion, one of Tungurahua's largest, took place at 8:29 a.m.and reached a height of seven kilometers (4.3 miles), according to Alexandra Alvarado, of the Geophysical Institute at the Quito National Polytechnic School.

Alvarado added that the cloud of ash, which could be seen from Quito some 135 kilometers (84 miles) away, was drifting and was last reported raining volcanic dust on Ambato, 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) northwest of Tungurahua.

I should say something like "6.1-6.4 southwest of utah etc" but that wouldn't be true. Generally this seismometer sees 6.0 earthquakes real well depending on it's location.

A 7.0 or higher anyplace in the world has a distinctive pattern on this seismometer. It is followed by real regular waves for an hour or more.

I was reluctant to post this one after I saw it because of lack of the waves, but decided to anyway.

For some reason, this particular mountain location is sensitive to world wide earthquakes. It is one of my favorites for earthquake watching.

BTW, I have a whole list of raw real time (well, near real time) seismometers if anybody thinks it would be worthwhile.

In 1980, the seismograph at Texas Tech University recorded and "event". Calls to the USGS could not confirm the event. One week later at about the same time, another event was record that was more severe than the first. Same day and time for the third week a lesser event occurred.

It turns out that there was a new (FNG) Dr Pepper delivery person making rounds for the soft drink machines on campus and in order to out of one location, he would bump the rear of his truck in the building hosting the seismograph.

Barriers are now in place.

Black Mountain (the chart I posted) is near an Air Force bombing range.

They routinely blow up old rocket motors about 15 miles away with 50,000 lb explosive weights.

The seismic report used to report these explosions as a 2.1 everytime. Oddly enough tho, they reported it as a 1 km undergound when it in fact was on the surface.

Okay? But Northridge is in the San Fernando Valley and as a native Texan, I always root for the disASTROS!

BTW, did you know that when the SF quake hit during the '92 World Series the dirt on the pitcher's mound shot about 10 ft in the air? Just an FYI.

I just checked the tsunami center, and no alert apparently.

10 KM underground is kind of deep for a Tsunami.

Given that the epicenter appears to be on the East Pacific Rise, and most likely due to strike slip faulting along one of the many transverse offset faults along the spreading center, a tsunami, while not impossible (e.g. due to an undersea slide triggered by the quake for example) would be highly unlikely. (BTW - I was taught and advised by Dr. Bruce P. Luyendyk, one of the pioneers of submerisible geophysical exploration of the EPR... Alumn of UCSB - '84;)

We are just coming into a period of maximum lunar tidal stress. This might be a day early, but if there is a weakness in the earth's crust, this would be the time for it to let go. A volcano, too? Hmm.

I think that was 1988, but I could be wrong.

It was in Trenton New Jersey, and it wasn't
an earthquake but the Rule of Law being smashed
to pieces by RATS.
Sorry. Off topic. couldn't help it.

Nope! You're right. It was Joshua Tree in '92 and SF in '88. Usually it's my spelling . . . :^D

Thanks for your prayers. I still have not heard from him, but I am sure he is okay. I have been refreshing this thread all day and sitting by the phone.

If your husband was offshore or inland, he is probably all right.

He should have been on the fishing boat at that time. Thanks for the reassurance!

No problem.

The worst place to be in a situation like this is right on the beach or next to the water in a marina.

Even in 100 feet of water it is probably pretty safe.

Told 'ya.

I'm glad he's safe. Did he catch any fish?

A lot of fish! He caught a sailfish but they let it go. The freezer will be full of fish this winter.
