Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

M7.2 Quake Rocks Ecuador, Peru

Posted by feww on August 13, 2010

Powerful earthquake rattles Ecuador for about 45 secs.

Magnitude 7.2 earthquake, epicentered at 1.260°S, 77.312°W, struck a remote Amazon region at a depth of more than 200km, rattling Ecuador and parts of neighboring Peru for about 45 seconds.

The shock was the strongest to strike Ecuador in 12 years. A 7.2Mw quake struck off the country’s coast in 1998, according to USGS/EHP records.

In 1949 a 6.8Mw earthquake in Ambato killed at least 5,000 people, and destroyed hundreds of homes.

The quake occurred about 128km ENE (79 degrees) of the 3km tall Tungurahua, one of Ecuador’s most active volcanoes, which has been active this year. FEWW forecast more explosive activity from Ecuador volcanoes in 2010 through 2012 and beyond.


Snow-capped Tungurahua, seen from near the town of Baños on its northern flank, rises 3,200 m above steep-walled canyons. Historical eruptions, separated by long reposes, have produced powerful explosions, sometimes accompanied by pyroclastic flows and lava flows. All historical eruptions have originated from the summit crater, and have typically lasted for several years. The largest historical eruptions took place in 1886, 1916, and 1918.

A Powerful Earthquake Measuring at least 7.4Mw Strikes Vanuatu Islands, Triggers Local Tsunami

The earthquake, epicentered at 168.02°E, 17.48°S, struck at about 05:24UTC  at a depth of about 45km, creating a small tsunami measuring up to a height of about 70 – 80cm.

There were no reports of casualties or major damage, as of posting; however, according to eyewitness reports the powerful quake shook the ground for about 10 seconds.

At last a dozen aftershocks, some measuring greater than 5.0Mw, have so far occurred. More aftershocks should be expected.
