6.5 Richters Earthquake Strikes 500 Miles South of Banda Aceh, Indonesia!!! Also a 5.8 Richters Earthquake Struck Alaska!!! Watch Around BOTH Places For MUCH Bigger Shakers!!!

Since the Alaska Earthquake struck first and was already my top story for the day I will run that story first and follow with Banda Aceh even though Indonesia is actually a much bigger one and is by far the biggest earthquake news for the day. . . so far unless something else shakes that is!!! Here's the USGS abreviated report from that Alaska Earthquake:

5.8 - 85km S of Chignik Lake, Alaska

2016-05-31 15:51pm Central Time

Nearby Places
52 Miles S of Chignik Lake, Alaska
503 Miles SW of Anchorage, Alaska
525 Miles SW of Knik-Fairview, Alaska
743 Miles SW of College, Alaska
926 Miles WSW of Whitehorse, Canada

Let me now tell you a 5.8 is catching all of us off guard up there in that region, too! But it's what we're watching for. . . just never stops being a big shock when it happens like that. Should probably be from that landfall of nearby Tropical Cyclone Roanu at Bangladesh where we will now continue to watch around Sumatra, but check this one out from late Wednesday a 6.5 there and enough to say keep watching we may want to expect bigger yet there!!!

6.5 - 91km W of Sungaipenuh, Indonesia

2016-06-01 17:56pm Central Time

Nearby Places
57 Miles W of Sungaipenuh, Indonesia
87 Miles S of Padang, Indonesia
329 Miles SW of Singapore, Singapore
450 Miles West of Jakarta
500 Miles South of Banda Aceh

Sungaipenuh, Jambi, Indonesia.......1.....105 km
Padang, Sumatera Barat, Indonesia...2.....150 km

Of course the last two is the felt report from Indonesia as reported at USGS, so big it was certainly felt in a wide area, just those are the reports that showed up on our list here!

Not as popular this week, possibly because I hold the script up in front of my face, HOWEVER, I must say this one DOES say to watch Banda Aceh, doesn't it!!!!!! You have to see this weeks 'Banda Aceh "Earthquake Minute", CLICK Arrow: ALSO View my NOW GREAT Banda Aceh "Earthquake Minute" at You-Tube@ AND See it for yourself right there in this here Transcript@

These all came in as late as 2100 hours and so I am just running them for folks who might want to know there was such a big swarm just to the south of us offshore Mexico and looks like maybe 300 Miles south of Mexico City, could have been 500 miles south of there, but I decided not to run any of the USGS Reports, maybe tomorrow, for today here's the entire list as of press time:

4.7 178km SW of San Patricio, Mexico 2016-06-01 21:43:10
5.1 183km SW of San Patricio, Mexico 2016-06-01 21:23:10
4.9 98km SW of San Patricio, Mexico 2016-06-01 07:25:03
5.4 192km SW of San Patricio, Mexico 2016-06-01 03:30:21
4.2 148km SW of San Patricio, Mexico 2016-06-01 03:12:37
4.3 194km SW of San Patricio, Mexico 2016-06-01 02:50:42

Those mean there's some terrible shaking along that boundary with Pacific Tectonic Plate again just as we've been expecting, but hate to actually see happen!!! Means California and our West Coast are very much in the game and it could have been US there!!! There was also a 4.8 - 44km WNW of Pedernales, Ecuador so keep watching because while these are smaller earthquakes, they're still hitting just the same!!! EQ Guy

There's a lot of my very best earthquake stuff in My E-Book, "Bringing Earthquakes To Life" @ Thank-You For Reading!!! EQ Guy

In the event you're reading this because you heard "Earthquake Minute" on one of the big Radio Networks somewhere, I have a page with all my "Bio Information" from my EQ Radio Show@ and it will have a lot of answers and some of my best stuff! Thank-You For Listening, Too!!! EQ Guy
