UNUSUAL EARTHQUAKES ACCOMPANY FULL MOON

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR MARCH 21, 2019

 

Unusual earthquakes occurred today in East and Southern Africa following an increase in solar flare activity. An M 5.5 in Tanzania was felt in Tanzania, Rwanda, Zambia and Malawi while an M 4.9 shook several Free States in South Africa. The solar flare activity today included a C5.6, the strongest flare registered this year. Following are parameters for this event which was one of several C-class flares today.

The largest earthquake in the world today was an M 5.5 in the area of Tanzania, Africa. NEIC reported maximum intensity V in Libala, northern Zambia and IV in Tanzania at Laela Rukwa, Mbeya, Kiwira, Tanzania and II-III in Tanzania in Makungu, Chimala, and Sumbawanga Rukwa; in Zambia at Mungwi and at Mzuzu, Malawi and Kigali Ville de Kigali, Rwanda. This earthquake occurred near the time of the full moon and was probably promoted by tidal stresses. This event occurred within about an hour of local solar noon a time when tidal stresses maximize in the earth. The last earthquake of M>=5.5 within about 200 km of this epicenter occurred as an M 5.5 on February 20, 2002 also with M 5.5. An M 6.5 hit the area on October 2, 2000. The last event within about 250 km of today's epicenter was an M 5.9 in Malayi on February 24, 2017 about 250 km to the southwest and prior to that an M 5.5 on November 14, 2009 about 250 km to the northwest. Forecast 114205 had expected today's activity was likely around March 21 about 260 km to the northwest of today's epicenter.

An unusually large earthquake of M 4.9 shook South Africa today. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity IV in Virginia Free State and in Welkom Free State, South Africa. The last earthquake within about 150 km of this epicenter with M>=4.9 occurred on April 3, 2017 (M 5.2) and  prior to that an M 5.3 on August 5, 2014.  Forecasts 114434 and 114726 had expected this activity in mid- to late March within about 100 km of this epicenter. This epicenter is located at 101 degrees from the M 7.5 in Ecuador of February 22 and may have been promoted from that source.

Tidal stresses from the full moon of March 21 also appear to have promoted seismicity today. The most obvious of these was an M 5.2 in the Northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge at 28 West longitude. This event occurred within about an hour of the full moon and was sub-lunar at the time of the full moon an hour earlier. The tidal forecast for this full moon as published in previous issues of this summary had read:

 

"The full moon will arrive at 01:43 UT on March 21. Longitudes which area sub-lunar at this time are near 26 West and sub-solar at 154 East. These include the mid-Atlantic Ridge where a series of moderate earthquakes is occurring in the Azores, the South Sandwich Islands, and the region of Kamchatka and New Guinea among others. These will experience maximum tidal stresses but many areas are subject to tidal triggering outside these longitude zones. A strong tidal-related earthquake is likely in the next seven days. Tidally promoted events often occur with geomagnetic storms and/or near local solar noon or midnight." (March 19-21, 2019)

 

Today's North Atlantic event did not occur at an epicenter which has been active in the recent seismicity of the area. It was probably triggered by strong tidal stresses associated with the full moon. The last event within about 200 km of this epicenter with M>=4.9 occurred August 14, 2017 with M 5.1. The last of M>5.2 in the area was an M 5.4 on September 30, 2013, The only event in the past 30 years of significantly larger magnitude in the area was an M 5.7 on May 17, 2002.  Forecast 114381 had expected today's event within about 50 km of this epicenter was likely around March 16.

The strongest earthquakes in the U.S. or Canada today occurred as an M 4.3 and 4.5-4.6 in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The aftershock of M 4.0-4.3 occurred within minutes of local solar noon and was probably promoted by tidal effects. The last event within about 200 km of today's epicenters with M>=4.6 occurred December 22, 2017 about 200 km southwest of today's events and prior to that as an M 5.5 on March 5, 2006.  No such earthquakes of M>=4.6 have occurred within 150 km of today's epicenters in the past 30 years. Forecast 114698 had expected today's activity was likely within about 100 km of these epicenters around March 22.

An earthquake of M 4.7 shook the region of Barbuda, Leeward Islands, today. This is the strongest earthquake in the region of Barbuda within about 100 km

of this epicenter since an M M 4.7 on April 17, 2018. The last of larger magnitude was an M 5.2 on February 9, 2018. Forecast 114514 had expected the Leeward Islands would be active around March 27 to the south of today's epicenter. Previous issues of this summary had expected regional seismicity in this area related to it's antipodal location to Tropical Cyclone Veronica north of Australia as:

 

"TC Veronica (21S) continued south of Lombok, Indonesia and north of Australia today with winds up to 150 kts.  It may help promote additional seismicity in the Sumba, Sumbawa, Bali and Lombok areas of Indonesia or at the antipode which is  17N 63W in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico region of the Caribbean. A moderate event in this area could be triggered by antipodal energy from Veronica." (March 19-21, 2019)

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.
