Of Course I Said To Keep Watching Nepal, And Kathmandu Got a 7.3 Richters Earthquake on Tuesday!!!!!

Probably going to be another one of those where all my best readers already know all about what happened on Tuesday up there in Kathmandu, Nepal. I have no doubt that there are enough of you reading this blog right this minute who knew exactly what direction the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate was moving. Most of you have been watching since last weekends full moon and watched as that huge swarm at PNG just continued on, and on, and on as I even continued that watch far beyond the usual number of days. Of course we had been watching for something big to shake. . . so we may leave it at that for today and hope the best for all our friends up there in Kathmandu!!! Here's the updated list of all the most recent earthquakes at Kathmandu, Nepal at Earthquake Central: FOLLOWING is a greatly abbreviated "Felt Report" mostly containing names of towns that I had heard of, but be it known it was felt everywhere as you can see by the furthest ones at the bottom of this list 1870 miles away!!!

Kathmandu, Kathmandu Nepal........24......78
Kirtipur, Kathmandu Nepal...............38......82
Dhankutā, Dhankuta Nepal................1.....159
Bombay, Maharashtra India...............1....1674
Bangalore, Karnataka India...............1....1870

AND there was also a 6.8 Richters Earthquake struck just to the north of Tokyo, Japan with 23 felt reports from Tokyo. Reports indicate it was very near that same epicenter as the 2011 Honshu Japan Earthquake only on this occasion no injuries or damage was reported.

Now there were those two landfalls and Ana at Myrtle Beach will certainly be responsible for some shaking that will definitely shake out there on our East Coast somewhere at some point very soon! HERE is a Great Quotation from one of my best EQ Blogs of last week: "Just as I was posting this blog, I notice Japan, Indonesia, Nepal and Fiji are showing up on the USGS List of latest earthquakes with some BIG earthquakes!!! Watch those places now especially!!!" And here is a link to THAT particular EQ Blog of last Friday:

So, that ongoing swarm that seems to have moved to Bridgeport, California could very well become the next Major Shaker but remember that was all shaking before Kathmandu let loose once again, but keep watching just the same there because this alert WAS extended 7 to 10 days into next week as a precaution and because something MORE could shake, yet!!!
