MODERATE EARTHQUAKE SHAKES EASTERN CARIBBEAN; MEDITERRANEAN AREA ACTIVE

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR DECEMBER 19, 2014

 

A series of moderate earthquake hit northern Africa and southern Europe today.  The strongest of these was an M 4.8 in Northern Algeria but other moderate earthquakes also hit the Tuscany area of Italy and in central Greece with M 4.4-4.8. The strongest earthquake of the day shook the region of Guadeloupe and registered M 5.6-5.8. A volcanic eruption at Gamalama Volcano in Halmahera, Indonesia injured three climbers.

 

The earthquake in Algeria had been expected to occur in mid-December within  about 50 km of this epicenter in forecast 85198. It is the largest to hit within about 150 km of this epicenter since an M 5.6 on August 1, 2014 and is probably an aftershock of that event. A similar event of M 4.8 hit near today's epicenter on July 17, 2013. 

 

EMSC reported this earthquake of M 4.7 in Northern Algeria was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Algeria at Blida, Djasr Kasentina, Ouled Fayet, Zeralda, Kouba, Alger, Dely Ibrahim, El Madania, Algiers, Cheraga, Bou Ismail, El Biar, Boumerdes, Cherchell, and Draa Ben Khedda. NEIC reported this earthquake of M 4.7 in Algeria was felt with intensity IV in Baraki and III in Algiers, Algier, Algeria. EMSC reported II-III in the area(s) of

EMSC reported the earthquake of M 4.4 in Italy was felt with intensity up to IV in San Casciano, Florence, Firenze, Prato, Agliana, Terricciola, Ponsacco, Fontanelice, Siena, and Panzano In Chianti, Italy. The M 3.5 in Italy was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Florence, Lastra a Signa, and Agliana. Smaller events in this series were also felt in San Casciano, Florence, Lastra a Signa and Agliana, Italy. The quake also hit Fiorentina, the capitol of Tuscan and threatened some sporting activities in the area. More than 80 small to moderate earthquakes shook the area today raising concerns that a larger earthquake could occur in the next days to weeks. 

 

This activity in central Italy had been expected within about 100 km of these epicenters to occur around December 19 in forecast 85212. The M 4.6 is the strongest event within 100 km of this epicenter since an M 4.9 about 100 km northwest of this on June 30, 2013, an aftershock of an M 5.2 on June 21, 2013. A strong series of events including an M 6.0 hit the region in late May, 2012.

Two moderate earthquakes shook the region of Greece today with M 4.4-4.6. These had been expected in forecasts 85162 and 85136 within about 100 km of these epicenters. The last earthquakes of M>=4.4 in these areas occurred as an M 5.6 in the southern area on August 29, 2014 and in the northern area as an M 5.1 on August 22, 2014.

 

EMSC reported this earthquake of M 4.4 in Greece was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Velos, Larisa, and Agrinio, Greece.

A moderate earthquake of M 5.6 near Guadeloupe shook much of the region from the Leeward to the Windward Islands today in the Caribbean. NEIC reported maximum intensity V in Point-a-Pitre in Grande-Terre, Guadeloupe. Intensity IV was also reported from Antigua and Barbuda at Potters Village, Saint John and Old Road, Saint Mary; in Guadeloupe from Petit-Bourg; and from Cole Bay, Netherlands-Antilles. Intensity II-III was also reported from Netherlands Antilles at Cul De Sac, Sint Maarten; from Fort-de-France, Martinique; from Guadeloupe at Saint-Barthoemy, Sainte-Anne, Saint-Francois, Kes Abymes, Le Gosier, Sainte-Rose, Gourbeyre, Baie-Mahault; in Antigua and Barbuda at Saint John; in Anguilla at the Farrington and in Dominica at Portsmouth, Saint John and Saint Joseph.

EMSC reported intensity up to V in Petit Bourg, Les Abymes and Le Gosier, Guadeloupe. Forecast 85385 expected the area about 150 km southeast of this to be active with a moderate earthquake around December 23. This is the strongest earthquake in the region of Guadeloupe within 150 km of this epicenter since an M 5.8 on February 14, 2005 and an M 6.0 on November 12, 2004. This epicenter is at 144 degrees from the strong earthquake in the Solomon Islands of December 7 and may have been promoted by energy from those events. Seismic energy from strong earthquakes is concentrated near 144 degrees distance by reflection and refraction of seismic waves off inner earth boundaries.

A volcanic eruption occurred today at Gamalama Volcano in Indonesia. Ash emissions reached 8000 feet height and the cloud extended 25 miles to ths north. Of seven hikers on the volcano when it erupted, three were injured. Gamalama is in Halmahera east of Mindanao near the Philippines at 0.8N 127.3E. The airport at Ternate  was temporarily closed. The last eruption of Gamalama occurred on December 4, 2011.

 

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. today was an M 4.0-4.8 in the Unimak Islands of Alaska near Chernabura Island and the Alaska Peninsula. This is a remote region and this earthquake was not reported felt. Forecast 85263 had expected this  event was likely within about 20 km of this epicenter around December 19. It is the first event within 100 km of this epicenter to occur with M>=4 since an M 4.8 on July 7, 2014.

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.
