MODERATE EARTHQUAKE OFF EASTERN HONSHU, JAPAN MAY PRECEDE LARGER EARTHQUAKES

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR MARCH 26, 2015

 

The strongest earthquake of the day was an M 5.5 off the eastern coast of southern Honshu, Japan. This earthquake was located in the outer rise east of the Tokyo area and was only lightly felt in eastern Japan in the Iwate Prefecture. As an outer rise event, it may indicate stress is building up in this region at the southern rupture end of the March, 2011 great Fukushima earthquake. The area has been in the stress shadow of that event for several years with few moderate to large events occurring. This area is particularly sensitive to geomagnetic effects and this may be a response to the strong geomagnetic storm which ended today. It followed a series of lighter earthquake all along the Japanese/Pacific subduction zone which is unusual for the current regional seismicity. This earthquake is the strongest within about 100-150 km of this epicenter since an M 6.5 about 150 km northwest of this on July 11, 2014. It is the strongest within 100 km of the epicenter since an M 6.1 on August 17, 2011. Forecast 87888 had expected an earthquake up to M 5.5 in this 150 km radius around March 28.

The geomagnetic field was at quiet conditions today.  The AP level was 8. High latitude AP was also quiet with A 5. This concludes the strongest geomagnetic storm since AP reached 120 at high latitudes on December 16, 2006.  A global seismic watch is currently in effect with a strong to major earthquake likely 3-5 days after the end of this geomagnetic storm - most likely around March 27-31.  A major global earthquake is possible in the next four days. This is based on seismicity which followed previous recent geomagnetic storms and was often delayed by around 10 days after the beginning of the storm. The current storm began on March 17 with AP 117 and has lasted for an unusually long 8 days around minor storm levels.  This may be related to the strength of this storm and/or the highly unusual nature of the storm in a very quiet period. Ionospheric currents should now intensify and induce telluric currents beneath them. These electrical currents in the earth may, in turn, help trigger a strong earthquake. A possible tectonic regime for such an event would involve near vertical faulting with different geology on the two sides of the fault and water within the fault itself along a line of longitude (for example, in South America or western North America; in New Zealand or along the western Pacific rim). Historically, the period from March 27-April 2 is one of the most seismic in the world including many major to great earthquakes in modern times.

 

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. today was an M 4.3 in the Alaska Peninsula near King Salmon, Alaska. This is a remote area and this event was not reported felt outside the King Salmon area where it was felt lightly. Forecast 87959 had expected a moderate regional event around March 26. The last event within 100 km of this epicenter with M>=4.3 occurred on March 13 and February 6, 2015 (M 4.6 and 4.4 respectively. The last event of M>=5 in the area occurred on June 13, 2010. 

 

NEIC reported this earthquake of M 4.3 in the Alaska Peninsula was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of King Salmon, Alaska.

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.
