4.4 Richters Strikes 37 Miles East of Kathmandu, Nepal and Things Could Be Settling Down, There!!! Wednesday Update: 6.0 Tonga, 5.8 Vanuatu

UPDATE: Watching all the earthquakes worldwide very closely there has been a 5.8 Near Port Vila, Vanuatu and a 6.0 Tonga and while there was also a 6.7 at Pacific-Antarctic Tectonic Plate Boundary, you are pretty much up to date on what's shaking and the remainder of this EQ Blog explains that. I will be back with a complete update later today or in tomorrows EQ Blog. Here's what's going on courtesy of Tuesdays EQ Blog:

We've been watching for the earthquakes to finally eventually start slowing down in both of these otherwise distant regions of the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate and as of today it is looking like that may be what is happening here! Of course I'm talking about both Papua New Guinea, and the Kathmandu Region of Nepal.

On the subject of PNG Earthquakes over the New Moon Window, starting at the beginning of the New Moon Window on Saturday, here's that list, check out the dates and times on both of these lists:
4.9 149km ESE of Kimbe, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-18 21:24:28
5.0 121km S of Kokopo, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-18 15:42:25
5.7 149km SW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-18 12:04:52
4.7 120km S of Kokopo, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-17 10:54:56
5.0 14km SSW of Rabaul, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-16 22:56:14

Starting to NOT be a lot of shaking there anymore, and coincidentally matches the list of earthquakes that continue to shake Nepal: AND Here's the earthquakes that have struck around Nepal since Saturday:
4.4 35km NNW of Ramechhap, Nepal 2015-05-18 17:49:50
4.3 27km ESE of Panaoti, Nepal 2015-05-17 00:45:37
4.4 30km S of Kodari, Nepal 2015-05-16 18:15:25

So, if nothing else shakes either of those places of which the chances are now dramatically dropping at every moment, then this SHOULD be the unofficial end of all the shaking all together! At least until the next major source of potential earthquake energy occurs and heads up to that region or either region for that matter. And with all due respect for that Super Typhoon that just "Brushed" Philippines, I do not believe brushing was enough to start any more Major Alerts for that already pretty devastated region. Have to sort of keep watching those numbers, though, because I understand a lot of people are still very nervous up in Kathmandu! The numbers will eventually all go down and shaking WILL subside until the next alert, which of course you will first read about right here in the EQ Guy's EQ Blog!!! Thank-You For Reading!!! EQ Guy
