Recent findings show that the state of Washington lags far behind California, Oregon, and British Columbia in its earthquake preparedness
As many as 30 people are feared missing following a large avalanche in Central Italy
At 11:14 a.m. local time, a M=5.7 earthquake shook the already devastated city of Amatrice, Italy, and was followed 11 minutes later by a M=5.6 quake.
The Christmas quake was extremely fast out of the gate, but ran out of gas within 8 seconds, coasting to a stop just 10 seconds later. This saved Chile from suffering a giant quake, but is nevertheless troubling news for Earthquake Early Warning systems.
El terremoto durante la Navidad tuvo un inicio extremadamente rápido, pero perdió su fuerza durante los primeros 8 segundos, deteniéndose justo 10 segundos después. Esto salvó a Chile de sufrir un terremoto inmenso, pero, sin embargo, es una noticia preocupante para los sistemas de Advertencia Sísmica Temprana.
At 4:08 a.m. local time, a M=5.9 earthquake shook Cuba, including the cities of Guantanamo and Santiago de Cuba.
Faults for much of northwest South America are now visible on Temblor
Scientists are now using sports to prepare for large earthquakes
According to year-end data from the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, there was a 23% drop from 2015 to 2016 in the amount of wastewater injected into the region’s areas of interest for triggered seismicity.
Faults spanning Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Japan, Taiwan, and New Zealand have just been added to Temblor.
A new finding by Janet Watt and her USGS coauthors appeared this month in Science Advances, heralding a “Missing link between the Hayward and Rodgers Creek faults.”
Why have there been so many large earthquakes in Ecuador so close together in time? A team of geophysicists aims to answer that question.
A M=7.0 earthquake shook off the coast of Fiji yesterday, and possibly triggered a remote aftershock over 1,000 km away.
Over the last several days, a seismic swarm has been taking place on the Brawley Seismic Zone which is the southernmost extent of the San Andreas Fault.
There is a clear need to densify the Nevada Network, and to install telemetry at all stations.
Thursday’s M=6.5 earthquake should have increased the stress on the Mendocino Fault Zone west and east of the rupture zone. These stress increases nominally would have the potential to trigger more earthquakes.
The European Space Agency (ESA) recently released new satellite imagery, that reveals which parts of the Bay Area are subsiding and those that are being uplifted.
This most recent Mw 6.9 extensional event was actually caused by the Tohoku earthquake which happened over 5 years ago.
At approximately 6 a.m. local time on Tuesday November 22, a M=6.9 earthquake shook the eastern coast of Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture, and caused a tsunami warning to be issued.
GNS Science just released drone footage of fault rupture along the Kekerengu and Papatea faults.
The 14 November 2016 M=7.8 New Zealand earthquake caused significant damage, and left many people isolated. Images now coming in show the scale of the devastation.
At 12:02 a.m. local time, a Mw=7.8 (per USGS), Mw=7.5 (per GNS Science, NZ) earthquake struck New Zealand’s South Island, and caused tsunami warnings to be issued for all of New Zealand’s east coast.
Imagine a 40-foot high wall of water. There’s nothing you can do to stop it, you don’t have time to grab possessions, all you can do is run.
At 12:20 pm local time Friday afternoon, a magnitude 6.4 earthquake hit 25 km ESE of Curico, Chile.
In our judgment, the Norcia, Gorzano, Capitignano Faults could now be the next domino pieces to fall.
A M=5.5 shock preceded the M=6.1 earthquake by little over 2 hours, and so might be deemed a foreshock. After the Amatrice earthquake, the INGV posted a calculation of the stress transferred from the M=6.2 to surrounding faults.
It is likely that earthquakes in 1943 and 2000 contributed stress that brought the fault which ruptured today, closer to failure.
The one-week California Earthquake Advisory ended, following a week of increased seismicity near the southern portion of the San Andreas Fault.
The California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) issued an advisory stating the recent earthquake swam may have slightly increased the probability of additional earthquakes over the next week.
In April, Kumamoto, Japan was devastated by a series of large earthquakes. Now, Google Earth has updated 3D imagery, revealing the extent of damage.
At 7:31 a.m. local time, a M=4.3 earthquake shook the southern section of the San Andreas Fault, within the Brawley Seismic Zone.
A M=3.5 earthquake on the Hayward Fault shook the East Bay and Peninsula at 12:50 a.m. local time.
Answer: They are the ‘one percent.’
At 5:02 Saturday morning, a Magnitude 5.6 earthquake struck 14km NW of Pawnee, Oklahoma. This was a fairly shallow quake occurring about 6.59 km below Earth’s surface, and it caused strong shaking.
Based on early reports, the USGS estimates that there will be no casualties or major damage. However, some injuries or economic losses may still be possible.
At 4:37 am Friday morning, a M=7.1 earthquake struck off the east coast of New Zealand, 166 km northeast of Gisborne. This was a moderately deep quake, occurring about 20 km below Earth’s surface, and it caused moderate to strong shaking on land.
Last week’s M=6.2 Italy earthquake left many parts of the medieval city of Amatrice in ruin. In the old part of the city, most buildings were made of unreinforced masonry, leaving them susceptible to collapse [Guidoboni and Valensise, 2015]. Amatrice was all but destroyed in three large shocks over 19 days in 1703, and so the part of the town that was highly damaged on 24 August 2016 was composed of buildings largely constructed about 300 years ago. In contrast, the newer construction in the east side of the town came through the M=6.2 quake relatively unscathed.
