Global Disasters/ Significant Events – 2 July 2013

States of Emergency declared for Cuyler and Deruyte, NY

Widespread flooding  prompted the Town Supervisors in Cuyler and Deruyte to issue states of emergency late Monday, said a report.

Flooding also forced the authorities to evacuate many homes, turn off power and gas and provide shelters for the evacuees, the report said.

Meanwhile, NWS has issued multiple Flood Warnings, Flash Flood Warnings, Flood Watches and Flood Advisories for much of the eastern U.S.

Air crash kills 19 people in Russia’s Sakha Republic

A Russian transport helicopter crashed into a hilltop in Siberia killing at least 19 people, including children, said the Russian authorities.

  • The Polar Airlines Mi-8 helicopter crashed in a remote, mountainous terrain, about 40 miles from Deputatsky in the Sakha Republic.
  • The crash has been blamed on bad weather. “The main theory at this time is difficult weather conditions,” the Interfax news agency quoted the regional police as saying.
  • There were three crews and 25 passengers, including 11 children, on board the helicopter.

Powerful Earthquake Strikes Off Papua, Indonesia

Posted by feww on June 16, 2010

UPDATE @ 08:40UTC

At last a half dozen aftershocks have followed the mainshock including a 6.5Mw, as of posting.

Up to a dozen people have been killed or injured, with more than 500 buildings damaged/destroyed near the epicenter, according to local reports.

Fire-Earth Forecast:  A major quake measuring 8.5Mw or larger, with more significant aftershocks could strike the area.

.

Powerful Quake Measuring Up To 7.5Mw Strikes Near the North Coast of Papua, Indonesia

The powerful shock was preceded by a foreshock measuring at least 6.4Mw.

Tsunami Status

There’s no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami in the Pacific Region, the Pacific Tsunami Center/NOAA/NWS said.

However, the earthquake and its aftershock may have generated destructive  tsunamis along the local coasts within a 100-km radius of the epicenter, the report said.

Powerful M7.4 Earthquake Strikes N Sumatra

Posted by feww on May 9, 2010

BREAKING NEWS

M7.4 Earthquake Strikes Northern Sumatra, Indonesia

Indonesian authorities have issued a tsunami alert

Fire-Earth does not believe a widespread tsunami could occur as a result of this quake because the shock struck at a depth of about 60km.

However, local tsunamis are possible within a 100km to 120km radius of the quake’s epicenter.

The earthquake struck offshore, at a depth of about 60km, some 220km (135 miles) south southeast of the of Banda Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia, the US Geological Survey Earthquake Hazard Program said.

The  earthquake was epicentered near 3.728°N, 96.081°E, about 47km (29 miles) north northeast of the 9.2Mw earthquake, which triggered the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami killing an estimated 228,000 people.

Powerful Earthquake Strikes N. Sumatra, Indonesia

Posted by feww on April 6, 2010

Serial No  1,542. If any posts are blocked in your country, please drop us a line.

Powerful earthquake measuring up to 7.9Mw strikes northern Sumatra, Indonesia

The quake struck at a depth of about 46km (28.6 miles) on April 06, 2010 at 22:15:02UTC about 205 km (125 miles) WNW of Sibolga, Sumatra, Indonesia. The epicenter was located at 2.236°N, 97.046°E.

The quake struck about 160km southeast of the magnitude 9.1 quake which triggered the destructive Boxing Day tsunami in 2004.

The epicenter was also about 34km NNW of the a magnitude 8.6 shock which occurred on March 28, 2005.

A magnitude 7.6 quake in West Sumatra in September 2009 killed 1,000 people, official records showed.

Tsunami Evaluation

The following bulletin was issued by the PACIFIC TSUNAMI WARNING CENTER/NOAA/NWS a short time ago:

SEA LEVEL READINGS INDICATE A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED. IT MAY HAVE BEEN DESTRUCTIVE ALONG COASTS NEAR THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER. FOR THOSE AREAS – WHEN DAMAGING WAVES HAVE NOT OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME THE THREAT IS PASSED. DANGER TO BOATS AND COASTAL STRUCTURES CAN CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL HOURS DUE TO RAPID CURRENTS.  AS LOCAL CONDITIONS CAN CAUSE A WIDE VARIATION IN TSUNAMI WAVE ACTION THE ALL CLEAR DETERMINATION
MUST BE MADE BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

NO TSUNAMI THREAT EXISTS FOR OTHER COASTAL AREAS IN THE INDIAN OCEAN ALTHOUGH SOME OTHER AREAS MAY EXPERIENCE SMALL SEA LEVEL CHANGES AND STRONG OR UNUSUAL COASTAL CURRENTS.

ESTIMATED INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE ARRIVAL TIMES AT FORECAST POINTS WITHIN THE WARNING AND WATCH AREAS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN SUCCESSIVE WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.

Seismotectonics of the Indonesian Region

Tectonics Plates The Indonesian region is one of the most seismically active zones of the earth; at the same time it has a leading position from the point of view of active and potentially active volcanoes. It is a typical island-arc structure with its characteristic physiographic features, such as a deep oceanic trench, a geanticline belt, a volcanic inner arc and a marginal basin.

In most subduction zones, motion of the subducted plate is nearly perpendicular to the trench axis. In some cases, for example Sumatra, where the motion is oblique to the axis, a strike-slip fault zone is seen, and is lying parallel to the volcanic chain.

In the subduction zone southwest of Sumatra, the Sunda trench axis strikes approximately N 37°W. The Indian Ocean crust is moving in an azimuth of approximately N 23°E relative to Southeast Asia, giving an angle of obliquity of 60°. Eastern Indonesia, forming the southeastern extremity of the Southeast Asian lithospheric plate, crushed between the northward-moving Indo-Australian and the westward-moving Pacific plates, is certainly the most complex active tectonic zone on earth. The rate of subduction is some centimeters per year; for example, it is 6.0 cm per year in the West Java Trench at 0°S 97°E (azimuth 23°); 4.9 cm per year in the East Java Trench at 12°S 120°E (azimuth 19°); and 10.7 cm per year in New Guinea at 3°S 142°E (azimuth 75°).

Frequent volcanic eruptions and frequent earthquake shocks testify to the active tectonic processes which are currently in progress in response to the continued movement of these major plates. The distribution of small ocean basins, continental fragments, remnants of ancient magmatic arcs and numerous subduction complexes which make up the Indonesian region indicate that the past history of the region was equally tectonically active.
