Listing all posts from April of 2010. Show all posts.
  1. An earthquake of magnitude 6.3 M occured 30 Apr 2010 at 23:11 UTC. The quake was centered 294 miles Southwest of Gambell, Alaska, and was at a depth of 15 km. Location: 60.644 degrees North, 177.901 degrees West.
  2. 27 APR 2010
    Scientists investigate 19th century Mexican communities water purification method. Using a common type of cactus found the world over called a Prickly Pear Cactus, the team extracted the cactus's mucilage ( a thick gum the plant uses to store water). This "gum" when mixed with water containing high levels of setiment, and/or bacterium Bacillus cereus, acts as a flocculant, which causes the setiment as well as the bacteria to combine with themselves and settle.
  3. 27 APR 2010 a tropical disturbance is being monitored by NASA, and the NOAA in the Pacific Ocean about 160 miles northwest of th Philippines. The storm is currently bringing strong winds and heavy rains to the region. The current sustained surface winds ar reported between 15 to 20 knots. The low pressure area is still building, and organizing. It is forecast that this storm named 90W has a fair chnce of developing into a cyclone within the next 24 hours.
  4. An earthquake of magnitude 6.9 Mw occured 26 Apr 2010 at 02:59 UTC. The Quake was centered 152 miles South of Ishigaki-jima, Ryukyu Islands, Japan at a depth of 10 km. Location: 22.247 degrees North, 123.733 degrees East.
  5. An Earthquake magnitude 5.7 Mw occured 25 Apr 2010 at 21:09 UTC. The Quake was centered 79 Miles N of Cristol Island, South Sandwich Islands at a depth of 10 km. Location: 55.592 degrees  South, 27.635 degrees West.
  6. 24 Apr 2010, around 11:30 am CDT, a devistating tornado weaved it's way from Louisiana up through west-central Mississippi. It tore a 3/4 wide path as it barraled through, and turned it's direction toward northeastern Alabama. A chemical plant in Lousiana, a shipyard at the Tallulah Port, as well as many roads were damaged. Dozens of house were destroyed and many others had their roofs torn off. Many people suffered minor injuries, and the report so far is that at least five people have perrished in the disaster.
  7. Earthquake experts from arround the globe made their way to Portland, Oregon last week to share new information and to raise awareness about the "big one" that could strike at any moment. The undersea fault along the Pacific Northwest coast is capable of producing the same type of mega earthquake as that witnessed in Chile. This fault has laid dormant for over 300 years, but data spanning the seismic activity in this region for the past 10,000 years indicates a pattern, suggesting that we are due for another "big one".
  8. An earthquake magnitude 6.1 occured on 24 Apr 2010 at 07:41 UTC. The quake was centered 126 miles North of Ambon, Moluccas, Indonesia at a depth of 53 km. There have no immediate reports of death or injuries, and the quake is reported to have not triggered a tsunami. This is just another in a series of quakes to continue in the area, which included the powerful 7.6 magnitude quake that struck near Sumatra back in September.
  9. A magnitude 5.6 Mb eathquake occured 24 Apr 2010 at 00:23 UTC. The quake was centered 1443 miles West of Valdivia, Chile at a depth of 10 km. Location: 36.323 South, 99.481 West
  10. An Earthquake magnitude 5.0 Mb occured on 24 Apr, 2010 at 00:00 UTC . The quake was centered 41 miles W of Kira Kira, Solomon Islands, at a depth of 38km Location: 10.409 S, 161.328 E

  11. Earthquake Report:  Today 23, Apr, 2010 a magnitude 6.1 Mw earthquake occured at 10:03 UTC, centered 41 miles S of Concepcion, Chile. Location: 37.416 degrees S, 72.943 degrees W at a depth of 35 km. No damage or injuries reported. The quake lasted for 25 seconds and is thought to just be another aftershock from the devistating 8.8 magnitude quake that hit the area back on 27 Feb, 2010.
