MODERATELY STRONG QUAKE SHAKES COLOMBIA-ECUADOR BORDER

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR OCTOBER 20, 2014

 

A moderately strong earthquake of M 5.6-6.0 hit the Colombia-Ecuador border today. As noted in the previous summary, this is likely to have been triggered by the X1.1 solar flare of October 19. That flare occurred when this epicenter was almost exactly at local solar midnight, a prime time for solar flare effects on seismicity to occur. This summary noted this yesterday as follows:

 

"The most likely solar flare effects (SFE) will occur within about 10 degrees of 76 West longitude and 103 East longitude which were anti-solar and sub-solar at the height of  the flare. This includes areas of Central and South America from Colombia south along the South American subduction zone and north to Nicaragua and Guatemala. In the east this will include areas of Sumatra and Myanmar and other areas of central Indonesia. These areas are under seismic watch conditions through October 26. Seismic watches suggest that conditions are such that a strong earthquake could be triggered in affected areas. The areas of central and South America are still seeing seismic effects from the Nicaragua earthquake of earlier this week and are antipodal to areas of Sumatra and Indonesia which are near the geomagnetic equator and are also vulnerable to increased seimsicity at this time." (October 19-20, 2014)

 

NEIC reported today's earthquake was felt with intensity IV in Ibarra, Imbabura, Ecuador and at Ipiales and Potosi, Colombia. It was also felt with intensity II-III in Ecuador at Atuntaqui, Catacachi, Otavalo, Ventanas, and Quito and in Colombia at Santa Maria and Pereira. Local news reported no immediate reports of damages or casualties from this earthquake. It shook buildings and frightened residenst in border towns. The epicenter was near the Colombian town of Cumbal a town of 36,000 where it was strongly felt according to town officials.

 

This is the strongest earthquake within 200 km of this epicenter since an M 6.9 on February 9, 2013 and an M 7.3 on September 30, 2012. It is the strongest shallow focus event in this region since an M 6.0 on March 28, 1996. Forecast 83682 had expected a moderate to large earthquake in northern Colombia around October 21. The mainshock occurred at the end of solar flare 3990, an M1.4 event. A strong M 4.5 solar flare occurred when the area was within minutes of local solar noon three hours prior to this earthquake. Solar flare effects are maximized in areas at solar noon and solar midnight. This flare (#3970) coming after a similar X1.1 flare yesterday probably helped trigger this unusual event in Colombia and Ecuador.

The second strongest earthquake recorded today was an M 5.3 in the Tonga Islands. This earthquake occurred within 3 minutes of the maximum of the M4.5 flare at 1637 UT and was probably also triggered by SFE from that event. Forecast 83907 expected this quake to occur within about 70 km of this epicenter around October 22.

A series of other unusual earthquakes have also occurred near 76 West longitude since the X1.1 flare of October 19. These have included from north to south, an M 2.6 east of Puvirnituq, Quebec, Canada (76 West); an M 4.4 in Cuba (75 West);

the mainshock and aftershocks in Colombia (M 5.6-6.0 and 4.4-4.5, 77 West);

Southern and Central Peru (M 4.6, 4.0) and in Central Chile (71 and 74 West, M 4.8 and 4.1). These may also have been promoted by SFE from the X1.1 flare especially in the case of the M 4.4 in Cuba which occurred within minutes of the maximum of the flare. This series of unusual earthquakes can be seen on today’s earthquake map as a line from north to south near 75 West longitude.

Near the antipode in Sumatra and M 4.6 occurred today. This is not a particularly noteworthy event except that it confirms possible triggering from the X1.1 flare and possibly from a C9.0 flare (#3820) which occurred while this area was  within minutes of local solar noon. Forecast 83700 expected this event around October 24.

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 5.0 in northern Alaska. This is probably additional seismicity related to motions of North America from landfall of Hurricane Gonzalo on the eastern Continental Shelf two days ago. NEIC reported this quake was felt with intensity IV in Fairbanks and II-III in Manley Hot Springs, Denali National Park, Healy, Delta Junction, Cantwell, North Pole, Fort Wainwright, Eielson AFB, and as far away as Anchorage more than 400 km to the south. A lighter earthquake of M 3.5 was also felt in Valdez, Alaska with intensity III later in the day. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. An earthquake on August 30, 2014 of M 5.0 may have been a foreshock. The last earthquakes within about 100 km of this epicenter of M>=4.6 occurred on August 31, 2014 with M 4.8 at nearly the same epicenter on April 2, 2003 with M 5.3 and with M 6.2 on October 6, 1995 so this a significant regional event. Forecasts 83892 and 83891 expected this activity between October 19 and 21. As this earthquake occurred near local solar noon, tidal stresses may have helped promote it.

A series of light earthquakes occurred in southern Kansas near the Oklahoma border today. NEIC reported an earthquake of M 3.1 was felt with intensity V in the area(s) of Bluff City; of M 2.6 in Bluff City, Kansas and Barnsdall, Oklahoma; of M 2.1 in Bluff City, Kansas; and with M 3.0 with intensity V in Bluff City and II in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Several events were also felt in Oklahoma including an M 2.5 felt with intensity IV in Stillwater, Oklahoma an M 3.2 felt with intensity II-III in Oklahoma City, Enid and Pond Creek, OK and in Wichita, Kansas and an M 3.5, the largest regional event of the day felt with intensity IV in Paden and II-III in Prague, Okmulgee, Oklahoma City and Marlow, Oklahoma and in Wichita, Kansas. To the west the upswing in seismicity along the Colorado-New Mexico border continued today with an M 2.7. This event was not reported felt.

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.
