Tdye84, just go to mozilla and you can switch to Firefox (like I had to), then add on the quake watch program: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2239

Here is a site I frequent that has a lot of great info on all things affecting our earth. It shows earthquakes, volcano's storms, biological hazards, etc.

Ok, got Firefox and so far I'm liking it a whole lot better than IE.

Are Alaska and Canada usually this active? I mean, it's been nothing serious, but a lot of small quakes this morning. But I guess there are small ones everywhere, huh?

I'm not certain about Canada, but Alaska is very active, usually with smaller ones.

Just as I was reading this thread, there was a 5.5 jolt to the browser from Japan.

The most active day I've seen in the past month had either 10 or 11 magnitude 5.0 or higher quakes.

YBIC,

No foxfire..

I don't have foxfire.

Is the 'earthquake watch' there any different than the RSOE HAVARIA Emergency Watch link?

BTW, that link is: http://visz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/index.php?smp=&lang=eng


How BIZARRE! It shows that at exactly the same time today there was THREE earthquakes, all of them being exactly a 5.5 - the weird part is how far apart they were: 1) North America, 2) South Pole (go figure, right?), and 3) Europe. All exactly at same time on the dot. Weird.

People told to prepare for start of rainy season

...Meanwhile, three tectonic earthquakes rattled the country yesterday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said yesterday.

The highest earthquake intensity was felt at Intensity 5 in Caraga in Mindanao.

According to Phivolcs director Dr. Renato Solidum, the first earthquake occurred at 12:56 a.m., measuring 4.1 in magnitude. It was reportedly felt at Intensity 5 (strong) in Butuan City, Agusan del Norte, the regional center of Caraga (Region 8), and Intensity 5 (moderately strong) in Surigao City, the capital of Surigao del Norte.

Solidum said the earthquake’s epicenter was located some 10 kilometers (kms) northeast of Butuan City with a shallow focal depth of one kilometer. He said that the quake was caused by the movement along the Philippine Fault Zone (PFZ)-East Mindanao Segment.

He said that no damages or aftershocks were expected due to the temblor.
Its the eve of pentecost.

So did you also get the equake add-on to keep you up-to-the-minute on quakes?

Thanks Betsy. I wasn't aware of that. :grin: When I look at the USGS site, I hadn't noticed many squares there before. That bigger one sort of stood out like a sore thumb. :eek:

I was just wondering about sore thumbs... I've got one. It's not standing out. I wish it would. It might make give me some amusement and make my suffering worth it.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - An earthquake measuring 6.5 jolted central Indonesia's Nusa Tenggara island chain on Thursday, prompting a tsunami warning, the meteorological agency said.

No other details were made immediately available.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18832231/

It's weird, my browser says 5.5, not 6.5.

There was just a 6.4 in Russia. The Kamchatka Peninsula. I'm off to find out where that is, lol.

I see that......odd because I've never seen Russia experience an earthquake. All I've found so far is that the location of the quake is 30.86 km (19.18 miles) N of Golygino (that's a big help :lol:), it was over 74 miles below the surface, and that 0 persons were affected. Maybe it hit in an uninhabited area. :dunno:

Quite some time back, I think it was a post on here or perhaps another board... anyhooo, it talked about an earthquake somewhere in Siberia. We were saying then that it was pretty unusual, then the thread continued with other similar events in odd places.

It didn't shake as much as I thought it might. :lol: It seemed the same as the few 6.0's, but it seemed to shake for a little longer than those. I noticed the duration more than the intensity.

6.8 is still quite powerful. This is the strongest one we've seen in a while, it seems.
