Listing all posts from May of 2010. Show all posts.
  1. 26 May 2010 at 8:53 UTC a magnitude 6.4 Mw earthquake hit near Okinawa, Japan. Strong quakes have been relentlessly striking near Okinawa, Japan for months now.  Is this a precursor for what is to come on the west coast of the United States? Many scientist believe the West Coast is due to have somewhere in the neighborhood of an 8.0 Magnitude or greater quake in the near future.
  2. On 18 May 2010 at 04:15 UTC an earthquake of magnitude 6.0 Mw struck only 81 miles outside of Moyobamba, Peru. The quake was at a depth of 125 km, location: 5.069 degrees South, 77.559 degrees West.
    No fatalities reported at this time, just a rash of power outages, and a few mud brick homes damaged.
  3. Mt. Hood, in Oregon has been quiet for more than 7 years with nothing but minor seismic activity, but on Fri, May 14th 2010, activity began ramping up. A magnitude 2.4 started the action at about 17:09 UTC, and then peaked with a magnitude 3.0 at 19:03 UTC.
    It appears that these quakes are fault related, and not volcanic at this point. The Northwest is joining the rest of the Pacific, and is seeing increases in seismic activity. Just how much of an increase time will tell!
  4. Today we saw more quakes in the 5.0 Mw range just off the coast of Oregon, and also up in Alaska. These quakes seem small now, but given all of the other activity around the Pacific, I believe it is just a matter of time before we see some much larger quakes. Indonesia, Peru, Australia, Japan, and Chile have all been getting repeated Quakes the last few months, and they seem to be continuing. Is the West Coast next in line for the big quakes? It seems unlikely that activity can build up on all these other faults, and not on the West Coast faults.
  5. An Earthquake rocked Sumatra, Indonisa again with a magnitude 7.4 Mw. A tsunami warning was issued, USGS officials don't believe there is any threat to India. The quake struck today 9 May 2010, at 05:59 UTC. It was centered 41 miles SW of Meulaboh District. The same area that was devestated in December of 2004 by a magnitude 9.3 quake. No damage reports have as yet been received from the area.
  6. An international team of researchers return to Tornado Ally for a second year of tornado research. Last year was an unusually quiet year, and the team was only able to get data on one really good storm, out of the 5 or 6 they had anticipated. The Study is called Vortex 2 and involves over 100 scientists, 50 trucks, with 10 mobile radars, 36 portable surface weather stations, weather balloons, and a 12 foot unmanned aircraft.
    For six weeks the team will be on the road, with no fixed based of operations.
