KUCHINOERABU VOLCANO ERUPTS IN RYUKYU ISLANDS, JAPAN

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR MAY 28, 2015

 

An eruption of Kuchinoerabu-jima at the Shindake crater on the southern Japanese island of Kuchinoerabu caused an evacuation of many from the area. The eruption which occurred about 0100 UT included ash up to 36,000 feet altitude and pyroclastic flows. All major eruptions of Kuchinoerabu have occurred at the Shindake crater which last erupted in August, 2014, the first such since 1980.  Kuchinoerabu is located at 30.4N 130.2E between the Ryukyu Islands and Kyushu.

Volcanism in the area often follows large regional earthquakes. The eruption in 1980 was the last of consequence and occurred as a 30 minute eruption on  September 28, 1980. Volcanic tremor was not noted with this 1980 eruption.

But if you came to this report today expecting to find details of the web-forecast M 9.8 earthquake caused by a purported planetary alignment you are probably disappointed. This event did not occur. In fact, it was one of the quietest days in recent seismicity with no events of M>=5 occurring on May 28, the expected date of the great earthquake. The largest earthquakes of the day occurred as an M 4.9 southeast of Honshu, Japan and as an M 4.8 in Taiwan.

 

NEIC reported this earthquake of M 4.9 southeast of Honshu, Japan  was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Chiba and Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan.

JMA reported intensity II in Chiba and I in Ibaraki, Saitama and Kanagawa Prefectures.

The largest earthquake since the last summary was an M 5.2-5.5 in the Vallenar area of Central Chile.  CSN reported this earthquake was felt with intensity V in  Copiapo, Tierra Amarilla, Vallenar; IV Alto del Carmen, Caldera, Freirina, Husaco, Coquimbo, La Serena; III Chanaral, Felt in Atacama and Coquimbo, Chile.

NEIC reported this earthquake of M 5.2-5.5 in Atacama, Chile was felt with intensity IV in Copiapo and II-III in the area(s) of Vallenar and Andacollo and felt in Atacama and Coquimbo, Chile.  This earthquake occurred within minutes of local solar midnight and was probably promoted by tidal stresses which maximize at this time. Forecast 89404 had expected this event about 100 km south of this epicenter. The last earthquake with M>=5.2 within about 100 km of this occurred on March 2, 2013 while the last of M>=5.5 occurred as an M 6.8 on January 30, 2013.

The most unusual earthquake in the U.S. today as an M 2.3 in the region of Habstadt, Indiana. NEIC reported this earthquake of M 2.3 in Indiana was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Zionsville, Hobart, Evansville, Indiana and in Olney, Illinois. This is the largest earthquake within about 100 km of this epicenter in Indiana since an M 3.6 on November 20, 2012 and an M 2.7 about 100 km southwest of this on January 11, 2013. Forecast 89266 had expected this event was likely in late May.

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.
