5.1 New Zealand With 2,900 Felt Reports!!! PLUS: 6.3 Solomon Islands!!!

Although there were so far 2900 Felt Reports for Wednesdays 5.1 Richters New Zealand Earthquake, I found that number on their local "GeoNet" website and a beautiful illustration of the exact locations that all the felt reports came from including at least one from Christchurch. The primary location of the majority of those felt reports seems to have been at Wellington. . . where we have been watching, though! Here is a link to the New Zealand Website and you might need to CLICK on "Felt Reports" once you get there and then possibly click the map to get that bigger pic that I was looking at a full page version@

There was also a 4.4, couple of 3.0's and one at 3.2 Richters with many more additional felt reports on that 4.4 and especially around Wellington, again.

In other big news around the globe there is that Huge Volcano in Chile and to take a quote from somewhere, "In this situation, with the eruption column so high, the main risk is that it collapses, falls due to gravity because of its own weight and causes a pyroclastic flow," Gabriel Orozco, a vulcanologist with Chile's geological and mining service, said on local TV. THE STORY Finished by saying: "A pyroclastic flow is a superheated current of gas and rock that can destroy nearly everything in its path and travel at speeds upwards of 200 to 300 kilometers per hour."

Day 40 after landfall of Super Cyclone Pam at Vanuatu was April 22, and Day 43 is coming up on April 25 also final date of recent letter to CEPEC/NEPEC, but can be extended with so much going on you know!!! In the process of organizing "Earthquake Files" found an amazing fact from the year 2005 featuring landfall of Cyclones Meena, Nancy, Olaf, Percy and Rae, around the Pacific Islands Region in February of 2005 followed on March 29, 2005 by the 8.6 Nias Island Earthquake very near the epicenter of the Great 2004 Indonesia Earthquake-Tsunami.

THIS IS about the magnitude we are now still watching and waiting for with New Zealand continuing to be in the cross-hairs!!! Keep Watching because this very serious alert still runs a few more days, yet! EQ Guy
