quote:Three people dead after strong quake Ecuador
At least 3 people have been killed and more than 47 injured after a strong and shallow earthquake registered by Ecuador's Geophysical Institute (IGEPN) as M5.7 hit Ecuador on December 19, 2016. The quake occurred at 07:11 UTC at a shallow depth of 5.2 km (3.2 miles). USGS registered it as M5.4 at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles). EMSC is reporting M5.5 at the same depth.
According to the USGS, the epicenter was located 18.5 km (11.5 miles) SSW of Esmeraldas (population 165 2016), 38.4 km (23.9 miles) NE of Muisne (population 13 393), 61.6 km (38.3 miles) NNW of Rosa Zarate (population 42 121), and 96.9 km (60.2 miles) WSW of Valdez (population 11 441), Ecuador.
IGEPN recorded the quake off the coast of Atacames in Esmeraldas province, about 175 km (108.7 miles) NW of Quito, the capital. It was followed by 15 lesser-magnitude aftershocks (M3.4 - 4.5).
A tsunami alert was not issued but the institute warned that aftershocks could be expected.
This region was devastated by a massive M7.8 earthquake on April 16, 2016. That quake killed about 670 people.

A magnitude 6.7 quake has struck off the Solomon Islands at a depth of 44 kilometres but there's no threat of a tsunami.
An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.7 has struck off the Solomon Islands, according to the United States Geological Survey, the second powerful tremor in the islands to Australia's north in less than two weeks.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said Tuesday's quake, which was centred about 120km northwest of Kira Kira at a depth of 44km, had not triggered any tsunami threat.
It came less than two weeks after a powerful 7.8 earthquake struck off the Solomons, triggering a tsunami warning for a wide swathe of the South Pacific that sent hundreds of villagers rushing to higher ground.
Zou dat iets te maken kunnen hebben met verhoogde thermische activiteiten in Yellowstone (Wyoming)? Ik weet dat het relatief gezien best ver weg zit van elkaar nog (ook al ligt het er in de staat naast) maar mijn kennis hierover gaat niet bepaald ver genoeg.quote:

quote:Earthquake swarm near Brawley California has scientists attention
warm of more than 250 small earthquakes have struck since New Year’s Eve near the California-Mexico border, causing unease among residents and attention from scientists.
The strongest earthquake in the sequence was magnitude 3.9, striking directly underneath the town of Brawley, about 170 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
The earthquakes struck in the southern end of the Brawley Seismic Zone, a seismically active region where tectonic plates are moving away from each other and the Earth’s crust is getting stretched out “and basically adding land,” said Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson.
The Brawley Seismic Zone is particularly important to watch because it is the region that connects the San Andreas and Imperial faults, both of which can produce damaging earthquakes. The seismic zone extends for about 30 miles from the city of Brawley, across the Salton Sea’s southern half, and ends near Bombay Beach
In 1979, a magnitude-6.5 earthquake sent violent shaking into El Centro, injuring 91 and causing so much damage to the concrete Imperial County Services Building that it had to be demolished.
There was major damage to the irrigation system in the Imperial Valley, a desert region that is a prolific producer of salad vegetables during the winter. Levees lining the All-American Canal, which funnels water from the Colorado River, collapsed along an eight-mile stretch.
The magnitude-7.1 earthquake that hit El Centro in 1940 claimed nine lives and swayed buildings as far away as Los Angeles. Irrigation systems were damaged, and railroad tracks were left warped where they crossed the fault.
Earthquake swarms that occur in the other end of the Brawley Seismic Zone -- to the north -- could trigger a major event on the San Andreas fault, one of California's most dangerous, that could send catastrophic shaking into Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.
In late September, one such swarm began in the northern Brawley Seismic Zone, with three measuring above magnitude 4. That event led the U.S. Geological Survey to warn that chances of a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake on the San Andreas fault had risen as a result of the swarm.
Another swarm of small earthquakes, topping out at magnitude 3.5, struck the town of Niland near the eastern shore of the Salton Sea on Halloween.
The last major earthquake to hit Brawley was in 2012, registering at magnitude 5.4.
Brawley Mayor Sam Couchman said the earthquakes have placed the city of 26,000 on edge since Saturday afternoon. The combination of the earthquakes and New Year's pyrotechnics spooked some of the town's dogs, who went missing, he said.
"We're just kind of listening to it, and when you can hear it coming, it'll rattle things," Couchman said. "Last night, we had the rain, the earthquakes, and the fireworks.
"All we needed were frogs and locusts."

quote:A 4.2-magnitude quake been registered in north central Bulgaria, seismologists say.
There are no reports of injured people or damaged property.
The quake struck just after midnigt local time on Wednesday, its epicenter being 2 km beneath the surface, 19 km east of Veliko Tarnovo.
According to the National Seismological Institute of Bulgaria, the tremor was measured at 3.5 on the Richter scale, not far from the area of Strazhitsa.
In 1986, the area of Strazhitsa was devastated by 5.7-magnitude quake which left three people dead and 80 injured and desroyed 15 000 buildings. Thousands of families are forced to live in temporary shelters for years.
