BANDA SEA QUAKE FELT IN NORTHERN  AUSTRALIA

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 14, 2019

 

The strongest earthquake in the world today was an M 5.6-5.7 in the Banda Sea of Indonesia. NEIC reported it was felt in Northern Territory, Australia with intensity II-III in Coonawarra, Darwin, Howard Springs and Humpty Doo-MacMinns Lagoon, Northern Territory, Australia. Moderate to strong deep focus earthquakes in the Banda Sea are often felt lightly in the Northern Territory of Australia.   The last earthquake of larger magnitude

within about 200 km of this epicenter occurred more than a year ago as an M 6.4 on March 25, 2018, Forecast 116641 expected today's event was likely around June 15.

 

When the event occurred on March 25, 2018, this summary noted the felt area as:

 

"The M 6.6 was reported by NEIC to have been felt with intensity III in East Timor at Baucau and Dili and in Northern Territory, Australia

with III-IV in Coonawarra, Palmerston, Darwin, Howard Springs, Humpty-Doo-MacMinns Lagoo, Maningrida, and Katherine and in Kununurra, Wester Australia.

BMG reported it was felt in Indonesia with intensity III-IV in Saumlaki; III in Sorong and Kaimana, Maluku, Indonesia. The regional foreshock of M 5.6 was also reported felt with intensity II-III in Northern Territory, Australia at Coonawarra, Darwin and Humpty Doo-MacMinns Lagoon.

Earthquakes in the Banda Sea often shake northern Australia due to local conditions and the deep focus of the Banda Sea events." (March 26, 2018)

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 4.6 in north-western Alaska. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity III in Galena, Alaska. This is the strongest aftershock within about 150 km of this epicenter since an M  Forecast 116774 had expected a moderate aftershock up to M 4.6 in the region was likely around June 14. The mainshocks in this area were of M 5.2 on March 6 and March 26, 2019 after more than 10 years of quiet seismicity in the region.

The Tonga-Fiji-Kermadec arc in the southwestern Pacific continued to see enhanced seismicity today with a series of moderate events along the area from Tonga and Samoa south to the Kermadec Islands. Following the M 8.0 in Peru of May 26, this summary has argued that this arc was likely to see strong triggering due to its distance (100-104 degrees) from the Peruvian epicenter. This appears to be the case with a number of moderate quakes in New Zealand in recent days. An example of this was noted on May 30, 2019 in this summary as:

 

"... three moderate earthquake in New Zealand - in the Kermadec Islands of M 5.0 and in North Island of 4.2 and 4.4-4.5. ...  This activity is at 101-102 degrees from the M 8.0 in Peru of May 26 and was probably promoted by concentrated seismic energy from that event, as expected in previous issues of this summary:

 

The 103 distance from Peru passes through the epicenter of the M 6.1 in the Andreanof Islands which occurred about a day before Peru; through the Komandorsky Islands of Russia, south to the Tonga-Fiji arc and through New Zealand where a moderate to large earthquake could be promoted in the near term. In the east it passes along the East African Rift north to western Turkey and the Anatolian region." (May 26-27, May 29-30, June 1, 10,  2019)

 

The last earthquake of M>=5 in the Kermadec Islands within about 150 km of today's epicenter was an M 5.3 on June 13, 2019. Forecasts 116813 and 116816 had expected this activity was likely around June 14-15.

A strong series of moderate sized earthquakes occurred in the area off the coast of Chiapas, Mexico today. The largest of these occurred with M 5.0 and 5.1 one within about five minutes of local solar noon and was probably promoted by tidal stresses which maximize at this hour. This is the strongest activity in Chiapas since an M 5.4 on March 5, 2019 and an M 6.6 on February 1, 2019.  Forecast 116645 expected this activity in mid-June.

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.

The strongest earthquake in the U.S., Canada or vicinity today was an M 4.4 in the northern Gulf of California. It was not reported felt in this remote area. This event appears to be a continuation of the activation of the region of California which has been ongoing through much of early June. It is the strongest event in this area of the Gulf of California since an M 5.2 on April 6, 2019 and  prior to that an M 4.5 on July 28, 2018. Forecast 116463 had expected this event within about 50 km of the epicenter was likely around June 7.

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.

M 3.4 IN PENNSYLVANA CONTINUES NORTHEAST U.S. ACTIVATION

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 12, 2019

 

The active period in the northeastern U.S. continued today with an M 3.4 and an aftershock of M 1.4 in the Mifflintown, Pennsylvania. This event was widely felt in Pennsylvania according to NEIC. Intensity II-III was reported from Pennsylvania at Honey, Grove, Ickesburg, Port Royal, Blain, East Waterford, Elliotsvurg, Mifflin, New Germantown, Landisburg, and Lewistown, It was also reported felt as far as New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Ohio,  and Michigan and in general within about 500 km of the epicenter. This follows an M 4.0 in Ohio two days ago and an M 3.0 in Quebec before that. Today's event is about 200 km east of the Ohio quake but is probably not an aftershock. Today's event is the strongest in western  Pennsylvania within about 200 km of this epicenter since a similar M 3.4 on July 16, 2010 and  prior to that an M 3.4 on December 27, 2008. The only events of larger magnitude in the area in the past 30 years was an M 4.2 and M 4.6 on January 16, 1994 hours before the M 6.7 in Northridge, California. There is a history of earthquakes in this area being associated with significant seismicity in the region of California and has often been noted in this summary. When the earthquake in Ohio occurred this summary noted:

 

"Half a day after the event in Quebec, an M 5.0 occurred in the antipodal  area of Quebec in the southeast Indian Ridge, Indian Ocean. It is notable as it occurred within about 300 km of the exact antipode (compare 47S 103E with 47S 105E) in an area of generally light seismicity, The exact nature (if any) of this antipodal pair is not clear at this time. This is the

strongest earthquake within about 300 km of the epicenter in the Southeast Indian Ridge since an M 5.3 on December 10, 2017 and prior to that an M 5.1 on May 29, 2015." (June 8-9, 2019)

 

and

 

"This appears to be part of the activation of the region of California which has been described in the previous issues of this summary. Activation  of this region is often accompanied by activation in the northeastern U.S. and Quebec, Canada regions, an area where unusual seismicity in Ohio to Quebec has occurred over the past several days and both areas may see this continue for several more days." (June 11-12, 2019)

 

When the M 3.4 hit Pennsylvania in December, 2008 this summary also noted the relation with seismicity in California as:

 

"An unusual earthquake of M 3.4 hit Pennsylvania yesterday along with an M 4.5 in northern California and an M 5.9 in Vancouver. These events together show a major shaking episode for North America. such episodes often include a strong

earthquake" (December 27, 2008)

 

and

 

"It is uncommon for a series of moderate earthquake to his throughout the region. Often, especially when one epicentral area is located in Pennsylvania such groups of events in the eastern U.S. are followed by a large or major earthquakes along the western North American and Pacific plate boundary in California" (October 25-26, 2009) and

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 3.7 southwest of Northridge, California about 23 minutes before the event in Pennsylvania. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity II-III in California at Newbury Park, Point Mugu, Oxnard, Camarillo, Westlake Village, Port Hueneme, California among others. This appears to confirm the association between earthquakes in this area and those in the northeast U.S. (see above). The last similar event in Pennsylvania occurred in association with the M 5.3 in the Channel Islands of April 5, 2018 and had been noted in this summary at the time. Today's M 3.7 in the Channel Islands is the strongest within about 50 km of this epicenter since an M 4.0 on May 30, 2012. Forecast 116471 had expected this activity around June 6.

The strongest earthquake in the world today was an M 5.6 in the southern Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It was not felt in this remote area. A similar M 5.6-5.7 occurred on April 16, 2019, the first such event within about 250 km of this epicenter since quakes of M 7.0  on June 17, 2015 and an aftershock of 5.6-5.7 on July 2, 2015.

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.

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 11, 2019

 

The strongest earthquake in the world today was an N 5.2-5.3 in Pakistan. NEIC reported this earthquake of M 5.2-5.3 in Pakistan was felt with intensity V in Muzafferabad, Pakistan; IV in Baffa and Swabu, Northwest Frontier, Pakistan and II-III in the area(s) of Abottabad and Peshawar, Pakistan. This is the largest earthquake in Pakistan within about 150 km of this epicenter since an M 5.4 on October 1, 2016 and prior to that an M 5.4 on July 2, 2015. The last such earthquake in this area with M>5.5 was an 7.6 on October 8, 2005 and aftershocks. Today's event may be a regional aftershock of the 2005 event. Forecasts 116448 had expected activity in this area around June 8. This earthquake occurred as Tropical Cyclone Vayu was active along western Peninsular India south of this epicenter as noted in this summary:

 

"Tropical Cyclone Vayu (02A) continued today in the north Indian Ocean west of Peninsular India with winds up to 105 kts. It is expected to track along the Indian coast for the next several day turning to the west around June 13. Seismicity in the Himalayas, Pakistan and northern India is likely to  be enhanced while this storm is active." (June 8-11, 2019)

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada outside Alaska today was an M 4.1 in the Geysers, California. NEIC reported intensity IV in Middletown and Hopland and II-III in Geyserville, Kelseyville, Cloverdale, Healdsburg, Glenhaven, Calistoga, Windsor and Angwin, California among others. An M 4.1 also occurred in Nevada today. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity II-III in Beatty, Nevada. The earthquake in they Geysers occurred 17 minutes after the M 4.1 in Nevada and may have been triggered by energy from that event. Both occurred within minutes of local solar noon, a prime time for tidal triggering which maximizes at this hour. This appears to be part of the activation of the region of California which has been described in the previous issues of this summary. Activation of this region is often accompanied by activation in the northeastern U.S. and Quebec, Canada regions, an area where unusual seismicity in Ohio to Quebec has occurred over the past several days and both areas may see this continue for several more days. The earthquake of M 4.2 in Nevada is the strongest within  about 100 km of this epicenter since an M 4.7-4.8 on February 14, 2015 and prior to that an M 4.4 on September 30, 2010. The last such event closer to today's epicenter was an M 4.6 on June 14, 2002. Most of this activity is located at 90 degrees (node 4) from the M 7.5 in New Britain of May 14 and was probably promoted from that source.

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.

MODERATE QUAKE SHAKES OHIO

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 10, 2019

 

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada outside Alaska today occurred in Lake Erie, Ohio. NEIC reported maximum intensity IV in Ohio at Eastlake, Wickliffe, Euclid, Mentor, Willoughby and II-III in Cleveland, and within about 60 km of the epicenter in Ohio. Two days ago when an M 3.0 occurred in Quebec, Canada east of today's epicenter this summary noted:

 

"Half a day after the event in Quebec, an M 5.0 occurred in the antipodal  area of Quebec in the southeast Indian Ridge, Indian Ocean. It is notable as it occurred within about 300 km of the exact antipode (compare 47S 103E with 47S 105E) in an area of generally light seismicity, The exact nature (if any) of this antipodal pair is not clear at this time. This is the

strongest earthquake within about 300 km of the epicenter in the Southeast Indian Ridge since an M 5.3 on December 10, 2017 and prior to that an M 5.1 on May 29, 2015." (June 8-9, 2019)

 

It is likely the event in Ohio was likely affected by the event in the South Indian Ridge. The last earthquake within about 150 km of this event in Ohio with M>=4 was an M 4.4 on January 26, 2011. The only other such event in Ohio in the past 30 years was an M 4.5 on September 25, 1998. Forecast 116510 had expected this earthquake within this area was likely around June 10.

The largest earthquakes in Alaska today were an M 4.3 in the Fox Islands and an M 4.4 in the Alaska Peninsula. They were not reported felt in these remote areas. The earthquake in the Fox Islands was the strongest within about 100 km  of that epicenter since an M 4.6 on April 8, 2019 and prior to that an M 4.6 on November 15, 2018. The last event in the Alaska Peninsula within about 100 km of today's epicenter with M>=4.4 occurred on February 1, 2019 with M 4.4 and prior to  that as an M 5.0 on October 10, 2018. Forecasts 116529 and 116522 had expected today's activity around June 9-10.

A series of light earthquakes followed an M 4.2 in the Dominican Republic today. Forecast 116413 had expected this activity was likely around June 8. This area has been active in recent days but the last events of M>=4.3 occurred on May 2, 2019 and February 5, 2019 - both with M 4.4. This activity is located at 144 degrees from the M 7.2 in New Guinea of May 6, 2019. Seismic energy is concentrated at this distance from large earthquakes  and can help promote further seismicity in this distance zone.

The strongest earthquakes in the world today were of M 5.4-5.5 in the Mariana Islands and in the Tanimbar region of Indonesia. These are located near the geomagnetic equator and may have been promoted by the recent geomagnetic storm as described in the previous issue of this report:

 

 

"The geomagnetic field saw unsettled conditions today. The AP level was 18. High latitude geomagnetic field also saw unsettled conditions  with AP at 10.  Moderately stromy conditions may come in the geomagnetic field in the next several days. This could enhance global seismicity especially in the geomagnetic equatorial zone." (June 8-10, 2019)

 

Forecasts 116290 and 116409 had expected this activity in early June. NEIC reported the earthquake of M 5.5 in Tanimbar, Indonesia was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Coonawarra and Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.

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.

INDONESIA ACTIVE AFTER MODERATE GEOMAGNETIC STORM

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 9, 2019

 

While global seismicity remained at generally quiet levels today, the area of Indonesia did show some seismic enhancement. The strongest quakes in the world were of M 5.2 in Java and Papua, Indonesia. These may have been enhanced by active conditions in the geomagnetic field as described in the previous issue of this summary:

 

"The geomagnetic field saw unsettled conditions today. The AP level was 18. High latitude geomagnetic field also saw unsettled conditions  with AP at 10.  Moderately stormy conditions may come in the geomagnetic field in the next

several days. This could enhance global seismicity especially in the geomagnetic equatorial zone." (June 8-9, 2019)

An unusual earthquake of M 3.9 occurred today in the North Atlantic Ocean west of Portugal. This is a region where strong, tsunamigenic earthquakes have occurred in the past and could re-occur. At M 3.9 this is the strongest earthquake within  about 250 km of this epicenter in more than 10 years. An M 4.1 occurred on February 28, 2008  The largest quake in the area in the past 30 years was an M 5.0 about 150 km south of today's epicenter on April 23, 2006, the only other such event in the past 20 years. Forecast 116512 had expected today's event in this area was likely around June 9.

The last earthquake of M>=3.5 within about 50 km of today's epicenter in the Bakersfield, California area was an M 3.8 more than a year ago on April 13, 2018 which was followed three days later by a similar event about 50 km to the southwest.  Forecast 116471 had expected today's event was likely within about 25 km of

the epicenter around June 10.

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.

MODERATELY STRONG QUAKE SHAKES SOUTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 8, 2019

 

An earthquake of M 5.5-5.6 occurred today in the Milford Sound area of South Island, New Zealand. It was followed by an M 4.3 aftershock. This continues activation of the region of New Zealand which began after the M 8.0 in Peru of May 26. This had been expected in this summary as:

 

 

“The 103 distance from Peru passes through the epicenter of the M 6.1 in the Andreanof Islands which occurred abouot a day before Peru; through the Komandorsky Islands of Russia, south to the Tonga-Fiji arc and through New Zealand where a moderate to large earthquake could be promoted in the near term. In the east it passes along the East African Rift north to western Turkey and the Anatolian region." (May 26-27, May 29-30, June 1, 2019)

 

GEONET reported 621 people felt the M 5.5-5.6 with 225 with weak intensity; 313 with light intensity and 79 with moderate intensity. Three reported strong shaking and one extreme intensity. GEONET reported 15 people felt the M 4.3 with 17 with weak intensity; one with light intensity and one with moderate intensity. The M 5.6 is the argest in South Island, New Zealand within about 250 km of  Milford Sound since an M 5.6 on May 4, 2015. The last such event of larger

magnitude was an M 6.1 on August 5, 2009 nearly 10 years ago. Forecast 116604 had expected today's activity was likely around June 7. Today's activity is located at 104 degrees from the M 8.0 in Peru of May 26 and was probably promoted by energy concentration on the surface at this distance from that event.

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 3.9 in the central Andreanof Islands, Aleutians, Alaska. It was not reported felt in this remote area. The last earthquake within about 100 km of this epicenter with M>=3.9 was an

M 4.1 on June 2, 2019. An M 4.5 on June 6 occurred about 200 km southeast of today's  epicenter in the Andreanof Islands. Forecast 116525 had expected this event was likely around June 6. Like the activity in New Zealand today this

epicenter is at 100 degrees from the M 8.0 in Peru of May 26 and was probably enhanced by energy from that source.

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.

MODERATE QUAKES IN KODIAK, ALASKA AND SOUTHEAST INDIAN RIDGE

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 7, 2019

 

It was a relatively quiet day in global seismicity. No events of M>5 were recorded. Two earthquakes of M 5.0 occurred - in the Kodiak area of Alaska and in the Southeast Indian Ridge. The later was near antipodal to an M 3.1 in Quebec, Canada which occurred about half a day earlier.

 

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 5.0 in the Kodiak, Alaska region. NEIC reported intensity IV in Ninilchik and III in Homer and Kodiak, Alaska for this event. NEIC reported the aftershock of M 3.9 in Kodiak, Alaska was felt with intensity II-III in the area(s) of Homer, Anchor Point and Kodiak, Alaska. The M 5.0 is the largest event within about 150 km of this epicenter in the Kodiak area since an M 5.2 on January 2, 2009. An M 5.8 occurred about 150 km

northwest of today's epicenter on May 27, 2019, the only other such event in the area in the past 10 years. Today's earthquake is probably a regional aftershock of the May 27 M 5.8.  Forecast 116545 had expected an event to the north of this around June 5.

An unusually large M 3.1 quake (Earthquakes Canada magnitude) hit the region of southern Quebec, Canada today. Earthquakes Canada reported it was felt in the area near L'Annonciation, Quebec. The last earthquake within about 100 km

of today's epicenter in Quebec with M>=3.1 was an M 3.1 on October 19, 2017. The last of larger magnitude was an M 3.7 on September 9, 2015. Forecast 116504 expected today event in this area was likely around June 7. This epicenter is located, like those in southern California at the 7th node (52 degrees) from the M 8.0 in Peru of May 26 and may have been enhanced

by energy from that source.

Half a day after the event in Quebec, an M 5.0 occurred in the antipodal area of Quebec in the southeast Indian Ridge, Indian Ocean. It is notable as it occurred within about 300 km of the exact antipode (compare 47S 103E

with 47S 105E) in an area of generally light seismicity, The exact nature (if any) of this antipodal pair is not clear at this time. This is the strongest earthquake within about 300 km of the epicenter in the Southeast Indian Ridge since an M 5.3 on December 10, 2017 and prior to that an M 5.1 on May 29, 2015. Forecast 116603 had expected to area would be active around June 11.

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.

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.

UNUSUAL MODERATE QUAKES SOUTH OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JUNE 5, 2019

 

Two earthquakes of M 4.3 in the Channel Islands southwest of Los Angeles, California were widely felt today. NEIC reported intensity II-III in California at Avalon, Rancho Palos, San Pedro, Newport, Corona del Mar, Dana Point, Palos Verdes, and Capistrano, California among others. Several light aftershocks were also felt in this area. These included an M 3.3 aftershock. The M 4.3 is the strongest earthquake in the region of the Channel Islands and Los Angeles, California since an M 5.3 on April 5, 2018 in the Channel Islands and prior to that an M 4.4 on December 30, 2015 in eastern Los Angeles. This summary had noted this activity in the previous issue as:

 

 

"An earthquake of M 3.1 also occurred about 50 km southeast of the Los Angeles swarm today. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity II-III in the California areas of Nuevo, Moreno Valley, Perris, San Jacinto, Homeland, Beaumont, and Hemet among other communities within about 50 km of the epicenter. This may be a far-field effect of the M 7.5 in Ecuador of February 22 and had been expected at that time in this summary as:

 

"Earthquakes of this size in Ecuador can help promote seismicity in California several months later. This summary will follow this in future issues." (February 22, 2019)

 

For example an M 6.9 on February 9, 2013 was followed by an M 4.8 in western Los Angeles on May 29, 2013 in western Los  Angeles, the strongest earthquake in that region prior to the M 5.3 on April 5, 2018 and the M 4.3's today.

Similar events in western Los Angeles included an M 4.5 on December 24, 2000, three months after an M 6.4 in Ecuador.

 

The strongest earthquake in the past 24 years in southern California was an M 5.3 on the Channel Islands southwest of Los Angeles on April 5, 2018. The situation is not significantly different from the current circumstances and

had been described in this summary at the time:

 

"the preponderance of evidence is that these mainshocks in New Guinea do trigger subsequent moderate to strong quakes near 103 degrees away in Southern California in the region of Los Angeles or to the east. Given the 22- to 23 year cyclicity

of strong earthquakes in this area, due at this time,  this summary is placing this region under a moderate seismic watch for the next month with the most likely large quakes at the end of March. A seismic watch indicates conditions are right for the development of significantly increased regional seismicity including  the possibility of a strong earthquake in the watch period. The watch period may be extended depending on regional activity. The most likely area would be east of Los Angeles in the general area north of of Landers, California." (February 25, 2018)

 

"As expected in the previous issue of this summary, the area east of Los Angeles was activated by energy from New Guinea." (April 5, 2018)

 

The earthquake in New Guinea of February 25, 2018 was an M 7.5 and occurred about 40 days before the M 5.3 in Southern California. This year's New Guinea event was likewise an M 7.5 and occurred on May 14, 2019 so triggering from this event is likely at this time in Southern California." (June 4-5, 2019)

 

Today's events of M 4.3 each were accompanied by light aftershocks of M 3.3, 2.9 and 2.6. Forecasts 116466 and 116468 had expected this activity was likely in early June. This activity is located at the fourth node (90 degrees) from the M 7.5 in

New Britain of May 14 and at the seventh node (52 degrees) from the M 7.5 in Ecuador of February 22, 2019 and was probably promoted from those sources.

The strongest earthquake in the world today was an M 5.5 in Mindanao, Philippines. This is the largest earthquake in Mindanao within about 150 km of this epicenter since an M 5.9 on May 10, 2018 and prior to that an M 6.6 on December 2, 2014. Forecast 116357 had expected this earthquake around June 5 in this area of the Philippines.

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.
