3.5 Richters Earthquake Struck 11 Miles North of Island of Maui In Hawaii Region!!! MORE Shaking Around Mount St. Helens, And NOW Around Mount Hood, Too!!!

First up today is the fact that as we're watching the volcanoes along our West Coast and especially in the Washington, and Oregon Region. . . would you take a look at what's now shaking in Hawaii, there!!! Could hardly beleive a 3.5 may not seem all that unusual, but sort of looks like the fact that our West Coast might have once been connected to Hawaii, and probably is NOW still connected as far as the MAGMA inside of the Earth must be traveling a distance where it was once probably a much closer distance. Another way to say that is far and much deeper under the Pacific Tectonic Plate must run streams of magma or lava in Volcano terms that is the explanation for why I've seen other volcanoes erupt while you and me watch Mount St. Helens!!! Might recall I have said recently to watch other volcanoes such as Colima in Mexico, and any others nearby. . . did I say Hawaii? Because would you now look at this 3.5 and tell me if they're connected:

3.5 - 24km NNE of Waialua, Hawaii
2017-08-23 20:11:21 UTC 21.292°N 156.649°W 14.0 km depth

Nearby Places
11 Miles North of Island of Maui, Hawaii
78 Miles East of Honolulu, Hawaii, Pop. 371,657

Can't forget to keep watching Washington, and Oregon for shakers, too! Here's another one with Salem, Oregon on the list of nearby places there:

1.6 - 3km WNW of Dollar Corner, Washington
2017-08-22 11:34:05 UTC 45.788°N 122.637°W 10.5 km depth

Nearby Places:
Good Hope, Washington 2.8 km (1.8 mi) NNW
Battle Ground, Washington 8.1 km (5.0 mi) W
Salmon Creek, Washington 8.6 km (5.4 mi) N
Five Corners, Washington 12.5 km (7.8 mi) NNW
Salem, Oregon 99.0 km (61.5 mi) NNE

Here's Wednesdays Small Earthquakes, but first one Mount Hood!!! As we've been watching for!!! Along with one more very near Mount Saint Helens or say 10 or 15 miles West of there:

0.7 22km E of Mount Hood Village, Oregon 2017-08-23 11:15
0.6 29km E of Castle Rock, Washington 2017-08-23 07:30

Now here's the list which looks like mostly around the Los Angeles Region:

1.5 15km WSW of Manhattan Beach, CA 2017-08-23 23:24
1.2 4km SSE of Encino, CA 2017-08-23 13:10
1.8 7km W of Isla Vista, CA 2017-08-23 12:31
2.1 7km W of Isla Vista, CA 2017-08-23 10:48
1.2 9km SSE of Gorman, CA 2017-08-23 05:27

That Mount Hood shaker came in at around 29 miles Southwest of "The Dalles" and 75 Miles Northeast of Salem and so we really need to keep watching that region because I seem to recall having said the day to watch being August 28, and it's now looking like today is August 24, so there just COULD be something major to come, yet!!!

Two Earthquakes Struck Early Tuesday In Middle of Entrance To San Francisco Bay With Now Over 1000 Felt Reports!!! 3.2 Downgraded To 3.0, And a 2.3 There, Too!!! Also a 4.1 North of Barstow at Trona!!! And 4.6 Nepal

Early on Tuesday Morning there were two good sized earthquakes right there in about the middle of the San Francisco Bay harbor entrance just west of the Golden Gate Bridge, and no more as of this writing:

2.3 10km SSW of Tamalpais-Homestead Valley, California 2017-08-22 09:07
3.2 11km SSW of Tamalpais-Homestead Valley, California 2017-08-22 08:36

Here's abreviated Felt Report From that 3.2 above and the entire Felt Report can be seen at Earthquake Central@ http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2017/08/32-richters-san-francisco-bay.html Here's The shortened version with some Zip Codes combined and etc,:

Looks like there's now been some trouble associated with yesterdays Italy Earthquake that I discussed being not far from Mount Vesuvius. . . now saying a lot of damage, at least one death and digging others out yet!!! Here's a story on that subject@ http://abc7.com/news/infant-rescued-from-wreckage-after-deadly-quake-in-italy/2332388/

Just looked like a whole clump of earthquakes so I zoomed in and found these all clustered around Sherman Oaks, California up in the San Fernando Valley there:

0.9 1km W of Sherman Oaks, CA 2017-08-22 15:14
1.1 1km SSW of Sherman Oaks, CA 2017-08-22 06:52
2.0 1km SSW of Sherman Oaks, CA 2017-08-22 06:46

This one came to my phone while I was on the way to work Tuesday and wasn't exactly sure where it was by the original name of this. . . NOW no mistake because they've put the name TRONA as name of it!!! Trona is also the name of a Railroad up there in this region north of Barstow and near the Nevada Region, Too!!! Here's The USGS Report followed by the felt report:

4.1 - 44km ENE of Trona, CA
2017-08-22 19:51:59 UTC 35.904°N 116.922°W 6.1 km depth

Nearby Places:

Poway, CA 92064 United States of America.....1...324 km
Wellton, AZ 85356 United States..............1...419 km

This one could possibly be a damaging earthquake, and list of nearby places was cut due to none of the names being of much help in figureing out this location maybe a hundred miles east of border with Kashmir and China and more towards the mountains there:

4.6 - 21km NE of Dipayal, Nepal
2017-08-22 00:50:36 UTC 29.393°N 81.105°E 10.0 km depth

There have also now been a LOT of small earthquakes not around Mount St. Helens Volcano. . . BUT rather around the Mount Rainer area and I'll keep watching there and have an update in upcoming edition! EQ Guy

Great Day!!! Solar Eclipse 2017!!! Lots of Great Views/Lots of Great Pics!!! And Some Small Shakers To Report, Too!!! Including Near Mount Vesuvius Shaking!!! New Moon Window Does Continue, Too!!!

Couple of pics of Mondays Eclipse worth sharing, first an early one maybe 45 Minutes before Moon passed the Sun:
HAVE to run more pics in later EQ Blogs due to one having to represent this Edition like at Twitter and Facebook. Two could complicate that feature! Let's move on and see what other earthquake stuff was going on Monday!

I can tell you for sure this is a lot of shaking around Mt. St. Helens with regards to the fact that Eclipse struck during the day today, too. And just stepped up enough to catch my attention:

0.5 37km NNE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-21 10:36
1.0 14km W of Morton, Washington 2017-08-21 07:33
0.9 2km SSE of Morton, Washington 2017-08-21 07:16
0.0 28km NNW of Packwood, Washington 2017-08-21 03:47

And there were more towns named on the following list of Nearby Places for this one near Salem, Oregon where we are watching VERY CLOSELY!!! Salem, Oregon 15 Miles away was all I needed to see and this might as well go with the above list, too, along with one more that struck farther east of the Mt. St. Helens/Portland Region. Here's Salem, Oregon:

2.0 - 10km SSW of Dallas, Oregon
2017-08-21 05:08:03 UTC 44.830°N 123.366°W 21.4 km depth

Nearby Places:
1.6 Miles Southeast of Bridgeport, Oregon
6.6 Miles SSW of Dallas, Oregon
18 Miles WSW of Salem, Oregon

Did notice some increase in the shaking right there at Yellowstone on Monday. . . but other than the initial one here being a 3.2 do not have any reason to suggest this is bigger than a usual day there where shaking might otherwise occur from time to time, you know:

0.9 15km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 10:56
0.1 16km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 10:34
0.8 15km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 07:20
0.8 17km NNE of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 05:43
1.6 13km NNW of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 05:29
1.6 15km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 03:35
0.8 15km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 03:29
1.7 16km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 03:17
0.7 15km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-21 01:03
3.2 15km N of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-08-20 22:00

THIS one is a very unusual earthquake that struck sort of near Mount Vesuvius!!!!! I suppose it's always possible that big eruption could be coming up the road there, too!!! Sorry to have to be the one to tell you, though! Here's what's shaking at Napoli, Italy. . . or the Italian name for City of Naples:

4.3 - 5km NW of Monte di Procida, Italy
2017-08-21 18:57:53 UTC

Nearby Places:
3.5 Miles NW of Monte di Procida, Italy
5.1 Miles West of Pozzuoli, Italy
13 Miles West of Napoli, Italy

Might still have some interesting info: Big Solar Eclipse/August 2017 New Moon Video Log!!! With Alerts For New Madrid, And Mount St. Helens!!! NOW at YouTube@ https://youtu.be/4QftIlgehek Thank-You For Watching!!!

And this one struck around New Madrid early Monday although not all that unusual itself, just saying:

2.2 - 6km SSW of Lilbourn, Missouri
2017-08-21 02:44:15 UTC 36.534°N 89.637°W 7.9 km depth

Nearby Places:
1.7 Miles Northwest of Marston, Missouri
23 Miles South of Sikeston, Missouri
31 Miles Northeast of Kennett, Missouri
161 Miles West of Nashville, Tennessee

The New Moon Window will run beyond the time of day when yesterday we were all watching the Eclipse!!! Just this time it should run several hours beyond that and maybe like up to the point where the Sun had officially gone beyond the Moon, so let's be watching through late afternoon for any shaking that we might attribute to the added pull of the August New Moon. And especially keep a watch on Mount Vesuvius, Mount St. Helens, and perhaps Montana and Yellowstone for more shaking there!!! Hope all of you got to view the August 2017 Eclipse, too!!! EQ Guy

Time For The Big August 2017 New Moon And Solar Eclipse To Happen!!! Also Time To Find Out Exactly What It Means For A Lot Of Major Shaky Places, Too!!!

THESE all shook the San Francisco Bay Region in the early hours of the Big August 2017 New Moon Window that started at 1:32pm Sunday! Now it looks like just as I say in new Video Log. . . might have to watch around San Francisco Bay Region during New Moon Window, AND throughout Solar Eclipse!!!!! Here's those shakers and not all small ones, either:

1.9 0km ENE of Pleasant Hill, California 2017-08-20 19:32
2.5 9km ENE of Morgan Hill, California 2017-08-20 18:47
2.3 12km WSW of Esparto, California 2017-08-20 11:01
1.4 8km SE of Seven Trees, California 2017-08-20 01:43

Here's some shaking again near Mount St. Helens, I'm wondering how much shaking they'll be getting there with the Eclipse passing practically directly overhead there!!!

0.4 26km S of Morton, Washington 2017-08-20 11:29
0.3 29km S of Morton, Washington 2017-08-20 10:50

NOW Here's: Big Solar Eclipse/August 2017 New Moon Video Log!!! With Alerts For New Madrid, And Mount St. Helens!!! CLICK Arrow: Watch Eclipse/New Moon Video Log at YouTube@ https://youtu.be/4QftIlgehek

There were two shakers in the immediate vicinity of the two places we are watching in Chile and Argentina and while the one that struck near Salta was just outside that district, this one has Copiapo, Chile in the list of nearby places so keep watching both although not sure if the Eclipse will have much effect there not being in the region where all the action is:

4.0 - 43km WSW of Taltal, Chile
2017-08-20 06:15:46 UTC
Nearby Places
26.7 Miles WSW of Taltal, Chile
130.3 Miles SSW of Antofagasta, Chile
134.1 Miles NNW of CopiapĆ³, Chile

This one struck very near a populated region where practically no earthquakes seem to ever strike. . . except that 8 or 9 Richters one that struck in 1755!!!!! And the felt report follows with Lisbon, Portugal there at the 36km Range and 5 felt reports from that famous earthquake town:

4.2 - 5km NNW of Arruda dos Vinhos, Portugal
2017-08-17 06:44:56 UTC 39.032°N 9.090°W 10.0 km depth

Exact Moment of August 2017 New Moon And The Solar Eclipse Will Be 1:32pm Central Time, so be watching in the hours before that exact moment for some of the usual shaky places to shake. I just noticed at press time Yellowstone and Montana both getting shakers of 3.2 and 3.6 and both have several felt reports from immediate areas. Watch around Mount St. Helens, but especially around Salem, Oregon where the big alert is actually for and possibly up around Seattle being very near this line of Potential Earthquake Energy, but possibly not around the line of the Eclipse directly. And we know as the moment comes. . . somebody will be shaking, just a matter of who and how much! And again as the exact moment passes throughout Monday Afternoon. . . somebody will be shaking, too! Just a matter of whom. . . and how much!!! Be watching for shakers, and I'll be trying to watch that Eclipse, hopefully from home and not having to travel too far to catch some clear skies!!!

MONDAY'S Eclipse Will Also Be The Exact Moment of The August 2017 New Moon!!! Window Starts on Sunday at 1:32pm, Too!!! Earthquakes Continue Up There Around The Mount St. Helens Region!!! AND a 6.8 Struck Mid-Atlantic Late Thursday!!!

Eclipse is also the Exact Moment of the August 2017 New Moon and therefore that New Moon Window will actually start on Sunday at that same time: or Sunday August 20, 2017 at 1:32pm Sunday, with that Eclipse on Monday at 1:32pm Central Time. For purposes of the added pull of the New Moon and its effect on Earthquakes lets start watching on Sunday!!! Also looks like eclipse MIGHT be passing almost directly over Mt. St. Helens and so perhaps we'll need to be watching there for some real ACTION!!! On Monday!!!!!

As I continue now to watch around Mount St. Helens, thought I had better quick check the whole entire list there from like the last seven days to see the sum total of what's actually shaking there! Here's the best I could do for a list although I haven't edited this nor checked it for all the sequence of the dates and times as far as how many and on what date:

0.4 36km SSE of Morton, Washington 2017-08-17 09:04
0.5 37km NNE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-16 08:45
0.2 38km NNE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-16 05:33
0.1 37km NNE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-16 03:46
1.1 35km S of Morton, Washington 2017-08-15 10:24
0.1 37km NNE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-15 10:10
0.8 41km NE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-15 09:54
0.2 38km NNE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-14 12:01

PROBABLY a Good Time for. . .New "Mount Saint Helens Pacifica Earthquake Minute" For This Week!!! Now at EQ Blog-3@ http://earthquakealert3.blogspot.com/2017/08/mount-saint-helens-pacifica-earthquake.html

Now for this other shaking going on at Mid-Atlantic!!! Started off the day on Thursday with a smaller 5.2 Ascension Island Earthquake and got me wondering what might be going on out there in the middle of the Atlantic? That was until around 10pm my time Thursday Night as I was preparing this Edition of EQ Blog. . . when my phone rang now with a 6.8 very near the epicenter of the 5.2 this morning. Looks like the magnitude might be changing on this one, too:

6.8 - North of Ascension Island
2017-08-18 02:59:22 UTC 1.103°S 13.656°W 10.0 km depth

Nearby Places:
472 Miles North of Georgetown, Saint Helena, Pop. 538

Might actually need to keep an eye on the Atlantic there throughout this weekends New Moon/Eclipse due to possiblility of tsunami alerts. And currently no tsunami warning system is known to exist on our East Coast.

Thought it just a little unusual for a series of small shakers such as these to strike San Simeon? This is near the 2003 Paso Robles Earthquake Epicenter for what it's worth:

2.2 17km NNE of San Simeon, California 2017-08-16 14:06
1.9 18km NW of San Simeon, California 2017-08-16 10:08
1.4 10km ENE of San Simeon, California 2017-08-16 00:12
1.6 9km ENE of San Simeon, California 2017-08-16 00:00:15

This one looked enough like it might be directly on the Hayward Fault Line that I decided to run the USGS with list of Nearby Places thinking maybe there could be something coming yet with that Hayward Fault Line we've been waiting for and isn't it supposed to eventually shake big time there:

2.4 - 8km NE of Milpitas, California
2017-08-16 17:48:34 UTC 37.477°N 121.828°W 7.2 km depth

Nearby Places:
5.6 Miles NE of Milpitas, California
7.5 Miles North of Alum Rock, California
9.9 Miles ESE of Fremont, California
9.9 Miles NNE of San Jose, California

Watch Mt. St. Helens throughout the New Moon Window beginning Sunday, because it seems fair to say they'll probably experience at least some shaking. Ditto for Mid-Atlantic although do not expect too much larger than those two that already shook there and hopefully no need to evacuate Ascension Island. Real problem is where I just seen there may be an issue with a "Gravity Anomaly" associated with the Eclipse!!! Fear that it is going to be crossing over NEW MADRID. . . and with a Gravitational Anomaly!!! MIGHT need to watch that shaky region, too!!! Looking forward to a busy weekend of preparing for that Eclipse on Monday!!! Weather NOT permitting, could have to drive to Indiana, Des Moines, Springfield, or St. Louis for my own personal viewing! Usually one of those towns or my own. . . will have those CLEAR SKYS we're all hoping for!!! Good Weekend, All!!! EQ Guy

3 Earthquakes Struck Within One-Mile Or So Of Mount Saint Helens on Tuesday!!! Keep Watching There For More. . . OR For a Big (Or Somewhat of a) Eruption, There!!!

Could hardly beleive it when I saw these earthquakes virtually COVERING about the spot where I know from a lot of experience to be the location of the Big Volcano known as MOUNT SAINT HELENS!!! So it was that 3 small earthquakes seem to have struck practically right in the middle of that volcano on Tuesday!!! Might not seem like much, but just so happens that all three of these earthquakes are within not much more than a mile from the very middle of the volcano at Mount Saint Helens!!!!! Picture follows of how close, you can probably see and I've even Zoomed-Wide enough so you can see "Spirit Lake" there and a Great Pic of that Volcano courtesy of Google Earth, too:
THAT is just one of the spots where small earthquakes shook so close to that BIG VOLCANO on Tuesday (My Birthday). . . ONE of the other ones was just a mile or so to the East there, and the other just to the north! Here is the entire list of the small earthquakes there and a warning that more are probably coming!!! Along with possibly somewhat of an eruption there maybe coming soon! Here's the list:

1.1 35km S of Morton, Washington 2017-08-15 10:24
0.1 37km NNE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-15 10:10
0.8 41km NE of Amboy, Washington 2017-08-15 09:54

This one has Hayward, California as the epicenter so it must be directly on the Hayward Fault I would assume:

1.9 - 1km NE of Hayward, California
2017-08-15 05:18:44 UTC 37.677°N 122.065°W 6.9 km depth

Nearby Places:
1.2 Miles West of Fairview, California
2.5 Miles NNE of Hayward, California
3.1 Miles East of San Lorenzo, California
6.2 Miles ESE of San Leandro, California

These are all the shakers that happened up in that Frisco Region:

1.8 0km WNW of Kensington, California 2017-08-15 13:05
1.4 4km W of Broadmoor, California 2017-08-15 08:04
1.9 1km NE of Hayward, California 2017-08-15 05:18

1.6 8km N of East Foothills, California 2017-08-14 22:57

Here's a few that shook around the New Madrid Region on Tuesday:

2.3 10km N of New Madrid, Missouri 2017-08-15 17:31

HERE'S more shaking around that Oregon/Washington Region, and a continuation of the list from the 3.2 that shook Eastern Oregon on Monday, too!!!

Last night was my occasional night to D.J. on my "Les Lusters RockShow" and so been very busy with having been born on August 15, 1960 and having that date occur from time to time, too, you know! So, it is still possible to hear that one-hour Radio Show at archives now under Monday Access Hour @ http://archive.wortfm.org/ AND along with all that. . . NOW Mt. St. Helens has started shaking!!! Quite a day and must say to watch around that Big Volcano for more shaking!!! And hopefully not too big of an eruption! Also when one volcano starts shaking, it's not uncommon for OTHERS to start shaking and erupting, too, so be aware there are a number of volcanoes in that region along with such nearby places as Mexico!!!

3.4 Richters Struck Near Running Springs, California Very Near Where We Are Watching, And a 3.1 Struck About 150 Miles East of Mt. St. Helens, There, Too!!!

While I cannot say these are getting bigger, I can tell you it seems like we keep getting notable shakers in these regions where we are definitely watching for something just slightly bigger there! Running Springs is about the first little town when you travel up the mountain from San Bernardino just off the 10 Freeway East of Los Angeles:

And this one so far no felt reports, although situated just about 150 Miles East of Mt. Hood, and about an equal distance from Mt. St. Helens, both places we are very much watching!!! No felt reports and the list of nearby places are mostly all places such as Boise so here's just the USGS Banner from this one:

3.1 - 34km S of Joseph, Oregon

Here's a New "Mount Saint Helens Pacifica Earthquake Minute" For This Week!!! Now at EQ Blog-3@ http://earthquakealert3.blogspot.com/2017/08/mount-saint-helens-pacifica-earthquake.html

This epicenter appears to be about as close to "Surf City USA" as you can get without being directly under it, there!!! At 1.2 Miles Northeast of it, check out the USGS Report:

1.8 - 2km ENE of Huntington Beach, CA
2017-08-12 22:50:19 UTC 33.700°N 117.984°W 18.1 km depth

Garden Grove, CA 9.0 km (5.6 mi) SSW

So tonight I was very busy with my radio show that I do on occasion on my local station and haven't had much time for my work with earthquakes! This is most of what's been happening and I'll keep this blog as up to date as I can while also waiting to be scheduled for my next occasion as my Registered Nurse character on TV-Series, too!!!

Looks Like Quite a Lot of Shaking At That Spot There In Chile/Argentina We Have Been Watching!!! Keep Watching South America! And San Francisco Bay Region, Too!!!

Let's continue to watch around Salta, Argentina a while even though this whole entire list shook there over the weekend and looks like places where normally might not get any shaking!!! Some small ones even edited out for space, here:

4.4 119km W of El Aguilar, Argentina 2017-08-13 16:57
5.6 60km N of Satipo, Peru 2017-08-13 16:51

5.0 57km W of San Antonio de los Cobres 2017-08-11 4:31

This one was Very close to Salta, in fact in Province of Salta, or Salta Region as this USGS Report says:

5.0 - 57km W of San Antonio de los Cobres, Argentina
2017-08-11 04:31:14 UTC 24.208°S 66.881°W 176.6 km depth

Country: Argentina
Region: Salta

Nearby Places:
35 Miles West of San Antonio de los Cobres, Argentina
100 Miles West of San Salvador de Jujuy, Argentina
100 Miles WNW of Salta, Argentina

HERE'S This Weeks local community radio "Earthquake Minute" featuring the 2 China Earthquakes and continued alerts@ http://earthquakealert3.blogspot.com/2017/08/2-china-earthquakes-minute-for-august.html

When this one came to my phone originally it was more like a 4.2 or 4.3 and I now see it looks like of course it's been downgraded to a 4.0 but probably subject to change, too!!!

4.0 - 35km SE of Bridgeport, California
2017-08-12 03:00:10 UTC 38.061°N 118.917°W 9.8 km depth

Nearby Places:
13 Miles ENE of Lee Vining, California
21 Miles SE of Bridgeport, California
29 Miles North of Mammoth Lakes, California
36 Miles SSW of Hawthorne, Nevada

THESE are close enough to Berkeley, California that it shows up on at least one of the felt reports there! Hope not too big of one comes along for Frisco anytime soon:

2.2 1km SSW of San Ramon, California 2017-08-11 16:44
1.2 1km SSW of San Ramon, California 2017-08-11 10:19
2.3 1km SSW of San Ramon, California 2017-08-11 09:29

And while not the same epicenter, these also in the Frisco Bay Region struck there on Sunday:

2.0 4km NNW of Orinda, California 2017-08-13 16:11
1.3 5km SW of Clayton, California 2017-08-13 12:57
1.4 5km SW of Clayton, California 2017-08-13 12:56
1.6 4km SW of Danville, California 2017-08-13 09:10

So, we might keep watching around Frisco and along that line to L.A. for 5.1 and if you caught "Earthquake Minute" you know a Mt. St. Helens Eruption could be coming, OR a small shaker up in that Seattle/Salem, Oregon Region. . . and keep watching Salta, Argentina and Copiapo, Chile, too!!!

4.6 Offshore From Oregon Where We Are Watching!!! Some Shaking In Southern California Near Salton Sea, And Another 2.7 Golden Gate Bridge Region Earthquake There!!! UPDATE: At Press Time a 6.2 Richters Philippines Earthquake!!!

JUST IN: There was a 6.2 Philippines Earthquake at 28 minutes after midnight Central Time and by the looks of it there could be some serious damage there! Very near several towns with 50 to 100,000 populations and so an update will follow at some point!!! Now Fridays Previously written EQ Blog:

THIS Earthquake shook very close to where we are CURRENTLY watching, and as a matter of fact, I had been planning to do a piece on for Fridays "Earthquake Minute" on my local Community Radio Station! Now, instead here now I'll be posting one that looks VERY MUCH like the one we are or were watching for there! Albeit a 5.1 we're watching for. . .so of course we'll need to watch for quite some time due to it possibly being more in the order of a 6 or 7 there:

4.6 - 113km W of Brookings, Oregon
2017-08-10 18:59:34 UTC 41.956°N 126.040°W 23.4 km depth

Nearby Places:
88.2 Miles WSW of Gold Beach, Oregon
90.7 Miles West of Brookings, Oregon
95.7 Miles West of Crescent City, California
126.1 Miles Northwest of Eureka, California

Somewhere amidst all the shaking at Holtville, California is a larger one that came in at a 3.2, although I seem to recall it having started out as a 3.4 due to being one-tenth point on the Richter Scale less than enough to ring my phone. Here's the list and I'll try to keep it updated, no nevermind there were never anymore shakers at this epicenter as of press time, all around noon my time, as you can see! Just one "El Centro" Shaker later in the evening, here's all those earthquakes now:

1.5 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:47
2.5 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:40
2.7 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:36
1.4 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:28
1.4 7km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:21
1.4 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:21
3.2 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:14
1.9 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:09
1.7 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:05
2.9 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 12:04
1.4 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 11:46
2.4 7km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 11:45
1.9 7km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 11:36
1.3 8km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 11:31
1.3 7km W of Holtville, CA 2017-08-10 06:38

This just came in so close to press time, that I'm still watching the felt reports coming in as I'm typing this all out! Looks like now several San Francisco Zip Codes and as far away as Santa Paula in Ventura County which seems pretty far for this small of an earthquake all the way up in Frisco:

2.7 - 10km SSW of Tamalpais-Homestead Valley, California
2017-08-11 03:00:11 UTC 37.796°N 122.601°W 4.7 km depth

Nearby Places:
6.8 Miles SSW of Tamalpais-Homestead Valley, California
6.8 Miles WSW of Bridge center of Golden Gate, California
6.8 Miles NW of San Francisco Zoo, California
9.9 Miles West of San Francisco, California

Add to all that the fact that there's one more thing coming up and you have todays EQ Blog!!! And you can either tune-in and see if we do a live "Earthquake Minute" or catch the transcript later when I will post it. . . and see what's the latest there!!! Big Story, I promise!!! Good Weekend, Now!!! EQ Guy

3.5 Richters Earthquake Struck Big Bear City Just North of San Bernardino on Wednesday!!! Still a Few Days Left In The Big EQ Alert For That Region of Far Eastern Los Angeles/SoCal, Too!!! Keep a Watching, There!!!

Headline did once read "Pearblossum, Pearblossum, Pearblossum!!!!!" due to the sequence of shakers that now follows this first rather big story! This one actually doesn't look like it was too far from Big Bear City if not directly under it!!! I noticed upon checking that August 12 is Day 40, and August 15 is Day 43 on the alert which includes this here very region!!! And so it is. . . we'll probably need to keep watching this far East Los Angeles/Southern California Region for more:

3.5 - 2km E of Big Bear Lake, CA
2017-08-09 20:40:50 UTC 34.240°N 116.886°W 7.7 km depth

Nearby Places
Big Bear Lake, CA 2.0 km (1.2 mi) East of

San Bernardino, CA 39.0 km (24.2 mi) ENE
Palm Springs, CA 57.0 km (35.4 mi) NW of

And I'll post a few of the felt reports here, although naturally it was felt all over Riverside and San Bernardino Counties there. Some Zip Codes have now been combined for one single amount there:

Santa Monica, CA 90401 United States............1....150 km

This might have otherwise been some news. . . but after the 3.5 Big Bear City Shaker, now I'm wondering if this didn't have something to do with that if you know what I mean:

1.0 7km S of Pearblossum, CA 2017-08-08 04:34
0.8 7km S of Pearblossum, CA 2017-08-08 01:15
1.1 6km SSW of Pearblossum, CA 2017-08-07 06:30

NO Felt Report to go along with this one, but probably not big enough to make anybody rush to the website and report it, either! Notice Emeryville where my Amtrak Station is to arrive and depart Oakland/San Francisco, although there's also an additional bus link to the Embarcadero and an Amtrak Station over that way, too, in fact I believe I seen it actually on the Embarcadero! Here's that small earthquake with the list of nearby places:

1.5 - 2km E of Berkeley, California
2017-08-08 21:41:50 UTC 37.869°N 122.244°W 9.1 km depth

Nearby Places:
1.9 Miles East of Berkeley, California
3.7 Miles Northeast of Emeryville, California
5.1 Miles East Northeast of Oakland, CA
8.0 Miles East of San Francisco, California

Made a little note to explain here that while there is a lot going on with earthquakes, along with landfall tonight of Hurricane Franklin at Mexico. . . not going to be able to keep up with all those alerts currently going on!!! New alerts will be in affect for that region around Mexico near that landfall and across that peninsula maybe near Mexico City! Also all that shaking now looking like it could affect Southern California, along with now several other landfalls probably should include Guam, Wake Islands, Nepal yet, and maybe others. Note that I will be working on TV-Series ALL NEXT WEEK in Chicago!!! So, I'm trying to start making excuses right now for not following all this so closely due to all the work that goes into planning on being out-of-town for a whole week! Naturally very little of that work is related to earthquakes, so please be aware there are now many alerts, BUT. . .aside from Guam and of course all that shaking that already took place in China, aside from all that not anything else BIG!!! That is as far as I know not headed directly for us but the continuation of that alert for around 5.1 that might now be lurking around Los Angeles!!! Watch for that, yet!!! EQ Guy

Big 6.5 Richters Earthquake Struck Sichuan, China Tuesday Morning!!! Another Big 6.3 Struck North of Sichuan Region Tuesday Night!!! Both Talking Central Time USA For Times. Several Dead, Lots of Damage There, Too!!!

5 Dead, 7, Dead, 9 Dead. . . at least 17 Dead!!! Those are some of the headlines from the big 6.5 China Earthquake of early Tuesday our time that struck not far from the region or maybe epicenter of the Sichuan, China Earthquake of 2008. So, let me start out with that drawing I ran immediately following the landfall of Typhoon Nesat at Taiwan:
You don't really have to be all that familiar with the region to notice that straight-line of "Potential Earthquake Energy" LOOKS like it runs right up into CHINA, there!!! Reason we're looking at this drawing right now is mostly due to the fact that they've as of this writing now had TWO Major Shakers up in that region!!! That 6.5 around 10am Central Time, and later on Tuesday Evening around 6:35pm Central Time another at 6.3 struck to the north of the first one. As you might be able to figure out by the drawing, the line more or less goes directly through that region, although when checked with the globe to be as exact as possible, you might know I put the emphasis on NEPAL because of that being just a little more likely to shake at this magnitude given the fact that they have been shaking! Again, I'm always very sorry when I do not write out an entire list of ALL the places such a line goes through. . . as you can now see by that above drawing. Also note the line travels in the reverse direction of that landfall and that's why I was leaning so heavily on GUAM, and the Wake Islands Region along with the fact that it's a lot of Americans in that region and that's most of my readership with all due respect to all the rest of you, I watch those regions of the USA just a little extra closely.

Here's the entire updated list of all the China Earthquakes we are talking about there:

4.8 43km W of Yongle, China 2017-08-08 21:17
4.5 109km SSE of Dostyq, Kazakhstan 2017-08-08 19:40
4.5 99km SSE of Dostyq, Kazakhstan 2017-08-08 19:22
5.3 105km SSE of Dostyq, Kazakhstan 2017-08-08 18:44
5.2 104km SSE of Dostyq, Kazakhstan 2017-08-08 18:39
6.3 107km SSE of Dostyq, Kazakhstan 2017-08-08 18:27***
4.2 37km NW of Yongle, China 2017-08-08 16:37
6.5 36km WSW of Yongle, China 2017-08-08 08:19*****

I suppose somebody might want to note that the Full Moon would have certainly been a factor probably in both of these two big China Earthquakes. With the first Earthquake Shaking at 13:19 UTC, and the Full Moon Window running until 18:13 UTC on Tuesday. . . you could say that 6.5 actually struck about 5 hours before the window ended or 19 hours after the Exact Moment!!! The later China Earthquake at 23:27 UTC or 5 hours, 14 minutes after the end of the Full Moon Window and technically even beyond my own personal 3 hours, 20 minutes that I like to add to these windows for good measure. . . but you have to admit it's close!!! (Actually just 1 hour, 54 minutes beyond my usual extra time that I give) And some other Full Moon/Earthquake folks might even call it a direct hit!!!

The felt reports from both of these consist entirely of places that are for the most part considered non-descript to English speaking folk! "Chengdu, Sichuan,"--"Peking, Beijing"--"Yining, Xinjiang"--"Hangzhou, Zhejiang" and "Chongqing, Chongqing" along with a few more like that and for that reason I decided not to run either of those lists with the 6.5 at 117 felt reports, and the 6.3 at 47 as of this writing. The epicenters were about 1000 miles apart with the 6.3 striking just west of Northwest of the 6.5, while the 6.3 was about 500 miles South of Novosibersk, and 1000 Miles West of Bejing and about 600 North of Nepal and not much further to Kathmandu there, too! The 6.5 was 800 Miles Northeast of Nepal, 300 Miles North of Burma, 800 Miles Northwest of Taiwan,and 700 Miles Northwest of Hong Kong.

I suppose there were some other things shaking, but I'm leaving all that for a later blog with all the shaking in China let's go to press so folks can get their updates I promised!!! EQ Guy

Hollywood's Famous Sunset Strip Gets a Tiny Earthquake!!! Just a Few Blocks West of West Hollywood!!! AND Watch For Shakers Now Around West Coast of Washington/Oregon, Along With Mt. Hood, And Mt. St. Helens!!! UPDATE: 6.5 China With Death, Injuries, And Damage!!!

UPDATE: This rang my phone right away this morning, a 6.5 China Earthquake and upon checking it is now looking like a big one struck there!!! I'll have all that in next EQ Blog!!! Now Tuesday:

THIS Earthquake just hit the "Sunset Strip" on Monday!!! Not all that big, but can serve as a reminder that is very near the epicenter of the Northridge Quake just the other side of the mountain there in Hollywood!!! So, I took a trip all around my old neighborhood on a "Street Views" map, and more about that after a look at the USGS Report there:

1.2 - 1km WNW of West Hollywood, CA
2017-08-07 08:43:02 UTC 34.096°N 118.375°W 11.3 km depth

Got some Great Pics of a lot of the Groovy Places along the Sunset Strip there including TWO Branches of my own personal "Bank of America" Buildings, saw Tower Records where I go to buy tickets back in the day although had heard Tower Records on Sunset was closed and heard House of Blues on Sunset was closed, too. . . but it's still very much there. HERE'S Hollywood & Highland Center with the Hollywood Sign on the hill in the distance
NOT Sure where I got that pic from, sorry, and Thank-You, Too!!! Got a great pic of the old "Viper Room" although didn't see the old "Key Club" not sure if it's still there or not! And of course Pink Dot, Guitar Center, my agents old building who got me my first part shooting up in Malibu Canyon on like my second day in Hollywood!!! Movie Theater on Sunset and Fairfax, Directors Guild, Burger King, Ralphs where we park on the roof there, and upon cruising up one block to Hollywood Boulevard saw (Manns) Chinese Theater, Dolby Theater, and The El Capitan Theater, along with the Hollywood & Highland Center and of course. . . The Hollywood Sign!!! End of tour, just hope none of those places become the epicenter anytime soon!!! In fact one of the stores on my tour was actually destroyed in the Northridge Earthquake of 1994!!!

HERE'S that Santa Barbara Shaker I was talking about as yesterdays EQ Blog went to press and looks like it's been downgraded now from about a 2 or 2.1 that it was on Sunday when it stuck:

Now, I know I had promised the Santa Barbara Earthquake, but upon just now checking at press time, I notice there had also been a Santa Paula 2.1 Earthquake felt in Lake Elsinore for whatever reason and I just want to be sure which one I was supposed to be rerunning, so now were up to date and one more from that region follows, if you want to call "Mt. Baldy" and Fontana the same region?

This one looks like it was felt in Rancho Cucamonga!!!

Big news today is that landfall early Monday of Typhoon Noru at Japan!!! Crossed onto land in the very early hours our time and struck the "Japanese Alps" about mid-day our time with windspeeds over a hundred, I'll have more about Noru in upcoming editions. For now be aware a 2.1 already struck to the south of the Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens Region where I'm already now starting to watch!!! Should be bigger than the last 5.1 there, but how big. . . you'll have to wait till I get all my research on this one!!! Until then watch our West Coast along Washington, and Oregon!!! Full Moon Window runs just beyond Mid-Day on Tuesday and if needed I'll have an update on the shaking!!! EQ Guy
