    I am in region affected was nasty enough but no tsunami ( there was a wave that came through but it was small). Minor structural damage (sink holes, cracks, piping, septic tanks ) etc but a reminder that the area is not equipped to handle or prepare for a tsunami all mobile alerts failed

    The 2.10pm is eastern time , 7:10pm UTC. It lasted less than 1 minute. There were 10+ aftershocks last evening one 6.1. One only today of note hopefully that’s the end of it.




  • Rock-and-roll. If these are preshocks, the next may be an 8.

    I Really hope not




  • Theory suggests that as the north & south poles lose the substantial weight of global warming, melting ice on top of their plates, they will rise and shift into other plates. Plates on plates, and many earthquakes about the world.




  • Aftershocks continue after Puerto Rico and Caribbean Sea earthquakes.

  • There have been 100s of earthquakes in the Granada area in the last week, but only 3 of over 4.0. My first experience of them, and a little nervous. There seems to be a regular flow of small tremors throughout the day and night.
    Last Saturday, Tuesday night and last night there were 4.0+ earthquakes. :eek:

    Mini-shocks to release pressure? Or pre-shocks of a coming big one?
