This earthquake just so happened to come in as todays EQ Blog was all ready to go just now needing to be all rewritten to include this 4.1 Richters shaker with tons of felt reports coming in from all over the Central California Region! As of this writing and this will need a lot of updating later in the day, Monterey 13, Morgan Hill 2, Mountain View 1, Pebble Beach 1, Santa Cruz 10, and Watsonville 2. As these come in and especially if they begin to come in from San Francisco and Oakland, then I will start a page for these over at Earthquake Central. For now know it was widely felt in that region AND there could be plenty more where that one came from!
There are still some Major Earthquake resultants from those landfalls of Neoguri/Kyushu, Japan, Ramassun/Philippines, Matmo/Taiwan, Halong/Japan, and Iselle/Hawaii. LOTS of earthquakes left to talk about and headed in a lot of different directions around the globe! We should mostly watch for that biggest of them all, the landfall of Typhoon Ramassun at Philippines which should probably mean a Major MegaThruster/Tsunami Event.
New Information regarding the Magnitudes of those New Madrid Earthquakes has come forward to me as a result of the BSSA. You can see the same abbreviated version of a Seismology Story @ http://bssa.geoscienceworld.org/content/104/4/1709.abstract?smtoc UPDATE: According to me, you might want to know my take on that story is as follows. The Newly Revised numbers are something like December 16, 1811-6.9 Richters, January 23, 1812-6.8 Richters, February 7, 1812-7.7 Richters. So, those are the new updated numbers and I mostly want to add that by todays 2014 standards what always happens next or usually just a few hours down the road is the USGS takes those numbers and changes them AGAIN. . . for whatever reason. Therefore you can almost say that we have NOW Officially come up with a good set of EXACT Numbers for those earthquakes at New Madrid!!! And that the USGS will most likely be changing them again and making them OFFICIALLY something else!!! You are up to date!
I didn't exactly touch that much on the Iceland Volcano, but did see where a game is being canceled or postponed due to it!!! Here's more info on that Volcano up in Iceland. . . a game might be postponed in Ireland!!! @ http://www.foxsports.com/college-football/story/ucf-penn-state-ireland-game-volcano-week-1-082014
One more chance to catch my latest EQ V-Log with all my pictures from my trip to Oakland/San Francisco last week or Quake Chase 2014! Hope you will take a few minutes (Looks like maybe 10, actually) and view all my groovy film clips thrown together into a nice vid at the end of this weeks Video Log about recent earthquakes. I've also included a lot of pictures in mostly chronological order as I went from Amtrak through Colorado to Frisco and back!!! Notice I left out a pic of the Great Salt Lake, too!!! First the link to the vid: https://t.co/hBEGIVjhp6 THEN, I will run that pic just for the fun of it!!!
Update: Looks like I was RIGHT!!! They downgraded the 4.1 South of Sacramento Earthquake, and it is right this moment a 3.8 Richters!!! Thank-You Again for Reading!!! EQ Guy
