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

Strong Earthquake Strikes Oaxaca, Mexico

Posted by feww on June 30, 2010

Earthquake Measuring at Least 6.5 Mw Strikes Oaxaca, Mexico

The quake, epicentered at 16.530°N, 97.708°W, struck about 120km WSW of Oaxaca City, Oaxaca, Mexico,  at depth of 10km on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 07:22:27 UTC.

The earthquake struck about 100 km WNW of the epicenter of a magnitude 8.0 quake which struck the region on June 17, 1928.

This quake has the potential to trigger one or more eruptions at volcanoes  in the region.

The shock may well prove to be detrimental to oil and gas drilling activities in the  Gulf of Mexico.

As of posting, there was no report of damage or casualties, but the Moderators believe some structural damage may have occurred locally close to the epicenter, and will post further information on Fire Earth Disaster pages.

Latest Earthquakes Magnitude 5.5 +

Posted by feww on September 19, 2009

Latest Earthquakes Measuring Magnitude 5.5 or Larger since September 18, 2009

The following significant earthquakes occurred within a 12-hour period.

The Bali Earthquake detailed below was reported as a Magnitude  6.0  shock by the  European-Mediterranean Seismological Center. 

GFZ Potsdam – Earthquake Bulletin
Region: South of Bali, Indonesia
Time: 2009-09-18 at 23:06:59.5 UTC
Magnitude: 5.9
Epicenter: 115.42°E 9.47°S
Depth: 77 km
Status: automatic

The quake was described as “very strong” by a number of people who sopke to the media. People were reportedly jumping from building and running away from their homes in panic after the quake struck. Up to a dozen people have been injured, some hurt jumping from buildings while others were hit by falling debris, according to news reports quoting officials.  No tsunami warning was issued.

An earthquake on the main Indonesian island of Java left more than 50 dead on September 2, 2009.

The 9.3 Mw Sumatra-Andaman earthquake which caused the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that killed an estimated quarter of million people in 11 countries, was the second largest earthquake recorded on a seismograph. The earthquake was also characterized by the longest ever duration of faulting lasting about 10 minutes, which made the entire planet to vibrate about 1 cm triggering earthquakes as far north as in Alaska.

FEWW Comments: More Mega-quakes should be expected in this region and other areas in the coming months. FEWW will post a separate [disturbing] forecast later.
