STRONG EARTHQUAKES CONTINUE NEAR VANCOUVER, CANADA

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR OCTOBER 22, 2018

 

Strong earthquakes continued near Vancouver, British Columbia today with the largest an M 6.8. The strongest of these was an M 6.8 which may have been lightly felt in British Columbia at Port Hardy, Port MacNeil, Ucluelet, Campbell River, Courtenay, Powell River, Parksville, Nanaimo, Secheit, It was also reported lightly felt in the U.S. in Washington, Oregon, SE Alaska, and California, Aftershocks included an M 5.2 were felt along the northwest coast of the U.S. and in the Vancouver region of Canada. NEIC reported light shaking in British Columbia at Vancouver, Campbell River, Gibsons, and in the U.S. in Ferndale, Oak Harbor and Stanwood, Washington. The M 6.8 is the strongest earthquake within about 200 km of this epicenter southwest of Vancouver in at least 30 years. The last earthquakes in the area of M>=6.8 occurred December 17, 1980 and December 20, 1976 (both M 6.8). The last of greater magnitude was an M 7.0 on June 24, 1970. Forecast 120595 had expected this event was likely around October 21.

 

A detailed account of triggering factors related to these earthquakes was provided in the previous summary and included a series of hurricanes (Willa, Michael, Vicente) which probably enabled motions of North America to allow this activity in Vancouver to occur. The prime factor beyond this include tidal stresses associated with the full moon today. The main activity in this series occurred near local solar midnight, a time when tidal stresses are maximized.

It was reported in the previous issue of this summary that strong promotion of the Vancouver events was probably provided by the M 7.5 in Minahasa, Sulawesi, Indonesia where the last major earthquake in the world occurred on September 28, 2018. This epicenter is at 103 degrees from Vancouver and energy concentrated on the surface may have enhanced the occurrence of today's events (see previous issue for more details). As expected a moderate earthquake of M 5.1-5.2 hit Sulawesi shortly after the major Vancouver events. The last aftershock of the Sulawesi quake of September 28 with larger magnitude was an M 5.7 on September 28. Earthquakes of M 5.1 have occurred on October 1 and October 8. This is a typical case of seismic ping-pong as described in the previous issue of this summary. BMG reported this earthquake of M 5.2 was felt with intensity III in Poso; II-III in Palu, Mamuuju, Parigi, Tentena and II in Masamba and Toraja, Sulawesi, Indonesia.

An M 5.7 (EMSC) to  M 6.0 (CWB) earthquake in Taiwan today was widely felt. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity II-III in Taipei, Taoyuan, Hsninchu, Taichung, Taiwan. CWB gave this earthquake M 6.0  and reported it was felt with intensity III in northern Taiwan in Yilan, Taipei and Taichung Counties; II in Hualien, Nantou, Taitung, Taoyuan, Miaoli, Hainchu, Changhua, Yunlin and Chiayi and I in Kaohsiung and Tainan Counties, Taiwan. No major damage was reported from this offshore earthquake and no tsunami was expected nor observed. The last earthquake near Taiwan with M>=6.0 occurred on February 6, 2018 (M 5.4) and February 4, 2018 (M 6.1) following a quiet period from February, 2016 to February, 2018.  Forecast 120515 had expected today's evnet within about 25 km of the epicenter was likely around October 22. This epicenter is at the fifth node (72 degrees) from the M 8.2 in Fiji of August 19 and was probably promoted by energy from that event.

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. outside Alaska and Hawaii today was an M 3.3 on the New Madrid Fault in Tennessee (earthquakes of M 3.7 in Northern Alaska and M 3.4 in Hawaii exceeded this magnitude today). It was followed by a series of aftershocks, most of which were minor. This many aftershock in the area is somewhat unusual. NEIC reported this earthquake of M 3.3 in Tennessee was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Ridgely, Hornbeak, Obion, Tiptonville, Troy, Newbern, Martin, Tennessee and in Missouri at Clarkton, Matthews and Sikeston. It is likely that the mainshock was triggered by energy from Vancouver as a delay of about only five hours separated the events. The only quake of M>=3.3 along the New Madrid fault in the past year was an M 3.6 on January 16, 2018. Forecast 120535 expected today's epicenter would be active in mid-October.  These epicenters are at 102 degrees from the great Fiji quakes of August and September and were probably promoted from that source.

An antipodal pair of earthquakes also occurred today in Sumbawa, Indonesia and Trinidad and Tobago. The Trinidad quake is probably an aftershock of the August 21, 2018 M 7.3 while the Sumbawa event may be a regional aftershock of the Lombok and Sulawesi strong shocks of August and September.

 

NEIC reported the earthquake of M 4.9 in Venezuela was felt with intensity IV in Trinidad and Tobago in Port of Spain and II-III in the area(s) of Mucurapo, Tunapunas-Piarco and Marabella, Trinidad and Tobago.

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.
