MODERATELY STRONG QUAKES STRIKE SHIKOKU, JAPAN, BANDA AND GREECE

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR AUGUST 28, 2014

 

The geomagnetic storm which began yesterday continued at high levels today with global AP again at 20-21 and 39 at high latitudes. An associated seismic watch begins today and will extend into the first two days of September. A small  eruption in Iceland may intensify as Hurricane Cristobal hits the area on

August 31 to September 1. Three moderately strong earthquakes were recorded today - both with M 5.8-6.0. These were located in southern Greece, Shikoku, southwestern Japan and  in the Banda Sea of Indonesia. The Banda Sea event may be related to the geomagnetic storm yesterday as it is located 15 degrees south of the local geomagnetic equator. The earthquake in southwestern Japan occurred offshore and was widely felt but did not do any damage on Japan. The M 5.8 (EMSC) or M 5.6 (NEIC) in Greece was also probably related to the geomagnetic storm as this area has been highly sensitive to strong high latitude geomagnetic storms in recent years.

 

The earthquake in Greece is the first in a possible series of moderate to strong earthquakes expected in the next five days related to the geomagnetic storm which hit over the past two days. These storms create conditions which allow ionospheric currents to induce currents in the earth. Under the right circumstances these currents can trigger earthquakes where the faults are near rupture. Generally this requires a near-vertical fault with different geology on either side or plenty of ground water. It is hypothesized that the fault can act as a giant capacitor with electrical currents melting the surface of the fault and allowing slippage to occur. There are a number of such faults in Greece and Turkey associated with the Anatolian Fault zone. EMSC reported this earthquake was felt with intensity up to V in Greece at Valenidia, Serifor, Paleopanagia, Tolo, Sparti, Stoupa, Kaliviani, Pirgos Psilonerou, Agia Marina, Kontomari, Kissamos, Voula, Drapanias, Stalos, Chania, Glifada, Voukolies, Argos, Puerto Rafti, Paleo Faliro, Peloponnese, Pireas, Nea Smirni, Moschato, Kalyves, Kallithea, Athikia, Athens, Nikaia, Kalamata, Egaleo, Agioi Theodoroi, Cholargos, Peristeri, Tripolis, Chalandri, Filothei, Chalandri, Neo Ionia, Korinthos, Ano Liosia, Acharnes, Loutraki, Nea Erythraia, Rethimnon, Pigianos Kampos, Perissa, Apikia, Thiva, Gazi, Xeropotamos, Heraklion, Stavrakia, Knosos, Kokkini Chani, Pelekita, Analipsi, Pirgos, and in Nardos and Sigonella, Italy; Paola, St Julians, Msida, Sweiqi, Mosta, St. Paul's Bay, Malta; and in Cairo and Helwan, Egypt.  Malta News added felt effects from San Gwann, Sliema, Mirkirkara and Zabbar and in the southern portion of the island at Ghazaq, Kalkara and Zejtun. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties with this quake which was felt from Crete to northern Greece and centered about 140 km south of Athens near the island of Milos. A seismic wave  from this event may have triggered an M 2.1 in the Napa region of California 31 minutes later. An M 4.7 aftershock was felt in Sparti, Athens, Metamorfosi, Heraklion, Greece.

 

 

 

The last earthquake of M>=5.6 within 100 km of this epicenter occurred on January 8, 2006 with M 6.7. An M 6.4 about 150 km southwest of this hit the area on October 12, 2013. Forecast 82481 had expected a moderate earthquake near this epicenter was likely at the end of August. This event is located at 104 degrees from the M 6.6 in Peru of August 24 and off Chile of M 8.2 on April 1 and at 101 degrees from Chiapas Mexico and Guatemala where an M 7.1 hit on July 7 and a series of moderate aftershock including an M 5.2 hit today. Seismic energy is concentrated by reflection from internal earth boundaries at this distance from large earthquakes and can help promote zonal seismicity.

The strong earthquake of M 5.9-6.1 off Shikoku, Japan was widely felt in southwestern Japan today. JMA reported intensity IV in Kumamoto, Miyazaki, III in Ehime, Kochi, Fukuoka, Saga, Nagasaki, Oita, Kagoshima, II in Tottori, Hiroshima, Kagawa, Yamaguchi, and I in Hyogo, Shimane, Okayama, and Tokushima. There appears to have been a slight tsunami and sea level changes in coastal region. No major damage was reported within Japan by JMA. Aftershocks of M 4.0, 3.7, 3.4 and a foreshock of M 4.3 were felt with intensity I-II in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. An M 4.5 aftershock was reported by JMA to have been felt with intensity II in Oita and Miyazaki and I in Kochi and Kumamoto Prefectures, Japan. NEIC reported this earthquake at M 5.8 and noted it was felt in Yanagawa, Fukuoka, Japan with intensity II.

 

The last earthquake of M>=5.8 within 150 km of this epicenter occurred with M 5.8 on April 5, 2009 and prior to that on December 16, 1998. Forecast 82498 expected this event within about 100 km of the epicenter to occur in late August.

The earthquake in the Banda Sea of M 5.3-6.0 occurred in a remote deep hypocenter and was not reported felt in the region. The epicenter lies 15 degrees south of the local geomagnetic equator and SFE triggering may have helped in the timing. An M 6.5 on September 1 was followed by an aftershock of M 6.4 in  this region on December 1, 2013. Shallow earthquakes then hit the area on February 3 and August 6, 2014 but were not classical aftershocks of these events. Today's earthquake is likely an aftershock of the September, 2013 earthquake. Forecast 82685 had expected this event within about 75 km of the epicenter to occur in late August or early September.

A small sub-glacial eruption under Vatnajokull glacier in Iceland has been confirmed. Fractures and cauldrons in Holuhraun have been caused by glacial melting and the water level in nearby glacial lakes has risen 5-10 meters due to meltwaters. A glacier river is now flowing to the northeast from the volcano. Seismicity in the region of the Bardarbunga volcano also remained at high levels today. Askja volcano has also been placed on raised alert in Iceland. A yellow aviation alert has been issued.

Officials have now declared 822 buildings in Napa, California are not safe for use after the earthquake of August 24 of M 6.0-6.1. This included nearly every restaurant in downtown Napa. Wineries suffered much of the damage but the local jail was also damaged but is still being used. Water mains were cracked throughout the city and at least 400 households remain without water. Video from Santa Rosa has surfaced showing a series of earthquake lights which preceded the earthquake by about 7 minutes. The video from a security shows a series of bright flashes which preceded the earthquake. Earthquake lights are often seen during and prior to large earthquakes but are apparently seldom caught on video this far from a moderately large earthquakes. If earthquake lights are easily caught on video surveillance seven minutes before strong earthquakes, why  spend millions of dollars on high-tech solutions to give three seconds warning to residents some distance away that an earthquake is coming. Why not just monitor on a real-time basis, these video cameras and issue a 7 to 10 minute warning based on the observation of earthquake lights by the cameras which are already everywhere. Of course, this assumes these lights are unique to periods just prior to  earthquakes and are not related to geomagnetic conditions, solar flares or other phenomena. At least a study would eliminate some of these possibilities before rushing in to an expensive, high-tech solution of questionable use in an area such as California. This system may give useful warnings in areas such as Japan and Mexico where large earthquakes generally occur in the subduction zone and not under the major cities and the distances between the affected cities and the epicenters is in the order of hundreds of km instead of the 10's of km in California. This would cost little and give more warning than the proposed system. Aftershocks today were all less then M 3.0.

 

NEIC reported this earthquake of M 2.2 in Northern California was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Calistoga, Napa and Saint Helena, California. The M 2.4 was felt with intensity II-III in Los Osos, American Canyon, Antioch, Calistoga, Napa and Vallejo, California. A second M 2.2 was felt with intensity III in Napa.

Stresses from Hurricane Marie may have helped promote the strong earthquake in northern California near Napa earlier this week. At the time Marie was located off the coast of Baja California near 20N 112W. This summary has proposed that strong hurricanes such as this can, through microseisms and geometric focusing, trigger earthquakes near the antipode. So it should come as no mystery that a moderate earthquake hit near the antipode of this  hurricane in the South Indian Ocean today with M 4.7-4.8.

OTHER GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE ACTIVITY

 

For most events there are two listings. The first line is the observed event starting with "O:" for Observed. There follows the date, month and year, the time in UT hours:minutes:seconds, the latitude and longitude, the given magnitude and the reporting agency followed by the geographic location. The second line starts with "P:" This is the forecast event as forecast in our summaries normally more than a month in advance. Magnitudes may vary in response to updated seismic watches and daily variations due to tidal and other influences. This line has the forecast date, month and year, the forecast number, latitude, longitude and forecast magnitude range.  This is followed by a comparison between the forecast and the event. The comparison includes letters A-D. The first is number of days difference from predicted (A:up to 2, B3-5; C:6-10; D:more than 10), Difference in latitude (A:up to 1 degree; B:1-2 degrees; C:2-4 degrees; D:more than 4 degrees); longitude (same comparison as with latitude); magnitude (A: within forecast range; B: higher than forecast range; C: lower than forecast range; D: no comparison possible). The last letter is a stand in for a future comparison which needs to be done statistically after a large number of forecasts have been made. In previous data, an excellent match is generally AAAAA; a good match as one or two B's; a fair match has several B's and C's and a poor match is one which contains a number of C's or D's.
