6.9 Richters Earthquake Shakes Burma Very Intensely!!! Shook Up Duke & Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate) Visiting Guwahati, India Nearby!!! Felt Report Is Now In!!!

One of the news reports covering this Major Earthquake story that only just came in within the hour or around 8:30am Central Time stated that in the nearby region of this 6.9 Epicenter in Burma is the "Royal Visit" of Duke And Duchess of Cambridge or Prince William and Kate Middleton as we know them. Reportedly felt the tremor very strongly but all is fine with the royal couple! Here's that story @ I've now seen more than one story about the Royal Visit and want to add there should not be any worry for the Royal Couple right at the moment due to them reportedly being situated like 800 Kilometers from the epicenter. Cannot say, however, when and where any potential aftershocks might strike!

Here's the latest info on that big earthquake with the so far one single felt report following:

6.9 - 74km SE of Mawlaik, Burma

2016-04-13 08:55am Central Time, about 8:30pm at Epicenter (Maybe 8:55pm, not sure)

Nearby Places
46 Miles SE of Mawlaik, Burma
90 Miles NW of Mandalay, Burma
210 Miles East of Dahka, Bangladesh
246 Miles NNW of Nay Pyi Taw, Burma

Updated Felt Report now at Earthquake Central@

These here preceded the Burma Earthquake and might have been telling us that tectonic plate was moving!!!

4.7 182km NNE of Fais, Micronesia 2016-04-12 19:23:56
4.6 190km NNE of Fais, Micronesia 2016-04-12 18:40:52
4.9 188km NNE of Fais, Micronesia 2016-04-12 18:27:53
5.1 177km NNE of Fais, Micronesia 2016-04-12 18:23:01
4.6 185km NNE of Fais, Micronesia 2016-04-12 17:13:25

These also preceded the Burma Earthquake but probably wouldn't all fit on the same map/page as the Micronesia Earthquakes so it became this separate list here:

4.3 1km SW of Simpang, Indonesia 2016-04-12 20:01:09
5.1 South of Africa 2016-04-12 17:34:17
5.0 West of Macquarie Island 2016-04-12 15:23:12
5.2 127km ESE of Madimba, Tanzania 2016-04-12 10:16:46
5.2 West of Macquarie Island 2016-04-12 07:07:55
5.2 84km NNW of Port-Olry, Vanuatu 2016-04-12 04:52:40

I have also been occasionaly mentioning that the bulk of all this earthquake energy we're watching for is focusing around the India/Australian Tectonic Plate, although still watch Ecuador/Columbia, but Burma is very much around that Tectonic Plate Boundary! Might have mentioned in this weeks "Earthquake Minute"!!! CLICK Arrow To View: WATCH This Weeks "Earthquake Minute" at YouTube@ AND See The Transcript@

Just checked and todays Burma Earthquake was on Day 53 after landfall of Cyclone Winston at Fiji and so we will need to keep a watch on Ecuador/Columbia because there's been considerable movement along that edge of the Pacific Tectonic Plate and it now appears somewhat more certain they'll be next to get that big earthquake that began with a 7.8 Indonesia, included lots of other shakers around the tectonic plate boundaries, and has now struck Burma! So, Columbia and Ecuador very much still have an alert for some Major Shaking!!! California could get more shaking before this is all over with, too! EQ Guy
