The strongest earthquake in the world today was an M 5.9 in the southern Mid-Atlantic.

This event is located in the South Atlantic Geomagnetic Anomaly zone and follows

several unusual events in the area in recent months. When an M 6.0 hit this anomalous

area on December 15, 2023 this summary noted:

 

"A series of three moderate to large earthquakes occurred in the area of the South Atlantic today

in the general area of Tristan da Cunha. These events of M 6.0, 5.3 and 5.3

occurred in an area where tidal stresses with the new moon were strong and may have

been promoted from tidal stresses. They also occurred at a maximum of the

current geomagnetic storm (Kp was 6 at high latitudes at 20:00 UT today). This area is often considered the third geomagnetic

pole of the earth in an area called the "South Atlantic Anomaly" where the

geomagnetic field behaves in unusual ways. Planes and satellites experience

geomagnetic anomalies in this area and often must be routed around the area

to avoid complications from mal-functioning instruments and/or sudden changes

in orbital altitude due to geomagnetic field changes and accompanying

ionospheric density changes." (December 15, 2023)

 

The last earthquake of moderate or large magnitude in the area occurred as an M 4.9

on May 18, 2024. At the time this summary noted:

 

"Unusual seismicity also continued today near the South Atlantic geomagnetic anomaly.

An M 4.9 near the center of this anomaly occurred today in the southern Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

This is the strongest earthquake within about 300 km of this epicenter since

an M 5.0 on December 15, 2023. The last earthquake in this area with significantly

larger magnitude was an M 5.5 on March 3, 2023 about 200 km north of today's

epicenter. A similar event of M 5.3 occurred north of this on May 15, 2024" (May 17, 2024) and

 

This earthquake was closely associated with a strong M7.3 solar flare (#3480).

 

Today's M 5.9 in the Atlantic was also closely associated with an M-class solar

flare as reported by SWPC:

June 10, 2024

 

The strongest earthquakes in the world today occurred as a series of moderate

an strong events in the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge and included the largest of M 6.2.

These evetns occurred within about an hour of local solar midnight and may have

been promoted by strong tidal stresses with the new moon of June 6, 2024. This summary

had expected seismic activity with this new moon as:

 

 

"The new moon will arrive on June 6, 2024 at 12:38 UT. Longitudes which are sub-solar at this time area near 10 West and those which are anti-solar (local solar noon) are near 170 East longitude. These include, in the west the areas of Iceland and western Europe and portions of the central mid-Atlantic near the equator and in the east areas of the New Zealand/Tonga/Fiji/Kermadec and Solomon and Vanuatu Islands, Kamchatka and Northern Japan and the Kurils among others. These include areas where strong tidal effects and help promote strong to major earthquakes and such an event may be expected in the next week." (May 31-June 5, 2024)

 

The earthquake of M 6.2 in the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge area is the largest

recorded in that area within about 300 km of today's epicenter since

an M 6.3 on August 30, 2022 to the west of today's epicenter. The only event

in the region in the past 35 years of significantly larger magnitude was an 

M 6.7 on May 19, 2015. At the time of that event this summary noted:

 

 

"A set of three moderately strong and strong earthquakes hit across the South

Pacific Ocean today. These occurred on the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge (M 6.7)

in southern Vanuatu (M 5.8) and in Tonga/Fiji region (M 5.8). This activity occurred at high latitudes

near the auroral ionospheric ring currents (Antarctic Ridge) and about 10-15 degrees south of

the geomagnetic equator (Tonga and Vanuatu) and was probably promoted by effects from the

geomagnetic storm of May 13.

 

...

 

The strongest of these events was an M 6.7 in the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge.

This is a remote oceanic ridge and no tsunami or felt effects were expected

or observed. This is a very large event for this ridge, which generally

supports strike-slip events with some volcanism. It is the strongest earthquake

to hit within about 500 km of this epicenter in at least 25 years." (May 19, 2015)

 

 

Today's activity followed a pair of M-class solar flares which occurred

while these epicenters were at local solar midnight and may have been

promoted by SFE associated with those flares. An earthquake of M 4.5 also

occurred around the time of flare 290 (M1.6) far to the southwest of the

later series and was closely associated with the occurrence of that flare.

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 4.5 in Northern California. NEIC reported it was felt with maximum intensity V in the Geysers, California.

This earthquake occurred within minutes of local solar noon and was probably promoted by strong tidal stresses which maximize near this hour.

EMSC reported strong shaking in Middletown, California. The last earthquaek in the Geysers area

of Northern California with M>=4.5 occurred on June 3, 2023 more than a year ago with

M 4.5. The last event in the area of larger magnitude occurred as an M 5.0 on December 14, 2016.

 

 

"The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 4.5 in the Geysers region of Northern California. NEIC reported it was felt with maximum intensity IV in Kelseyville and Middletown with intensity II-III in Geyserville, Healdsburg, Hidden Valley Lake, Cloverdale, Lower Lake, Calistoga, Windsor and as far to the south as San Francisco, California.

This is an area where fluid flow often controls seismicity. Strong tidal stresses

can be an effective means to move fluids. So it is not surprising that this

earthquake occurred in conjunction with today's full moon

 

...

 

 

Today's earthquake is the strongest event in the Geysers area since an M 5.0 on December 14, 2016.

That earthquake was likely the strongest recorded in the Geysers region of California as reported at the time in

this summary:

 

"While smaller earthquakes in the Geysers, California are nearly continuous, events

of larger magnitude are uncommon. Today's earthquake may be the largest ever

recorded in the Geysers area, in fact. An M 5.0 was recorded on May 7, 1955 but

magnitudes were not well determined at the time. No other events in the Geysers

area have reached M>=5.0 until today." (December 14, 2016) 

 

Like today's event this earthquake in 2016 occurred with the full moon of December 14, 2016 and

was probably promoted by tidal stresses." (June 3, 2023)

 

A foreshock of M 2.6 in the Geysers area at 02:36 UT  was close associated with solar flare

9950 - an M9.7 flare with parameters listed below.

 

 

An earthquake of M 4.4 also occurred in Alaska today. This earthquake was felt with intensity

up to IV in Denali National Park, Alaska. It occurred within several minutes of local

solar midnight and was likely triggered by strong tidal stresses which maximize near this hour.

 

Maximum tidal triggering effects with the new moon of June 6 had been expected in this summary as:

 

"The new moon will arrive on June 6, 2024 at 12:38 UT. Longitudes which are sub-solar at this time area near 10 West and those which are anti-solar (local solar noon) are near 170 East longitude. These include, in the west the areas of Iceland and western Europe and portions of the central mid-Atlantic near the equator and in the east areas of the New Zealand/Tonga/Fiji/Kermadec and Solomon and Vanuatu Islands, Kamchatka and Northern Japan and the Kurils among others. These include areas where strong tidal effects and help promote strong to major earthquakes and such an event may be expected in the next week." (May 31-June 5, 2024)

 

The last earthquake with M>=4.4 in the Denali National Park area of Alaska was

recorded by NEIC as occurring on February 14, 2024 with M 4.7. At the time this summary noted:

 

 

"The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 4.7 in Central Alaska. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity up to M 4.7 in Petersville, Alaska.

The only earthquake within about 150 km of this epicenter within about 150 km

of today's epicenter with significantly larger magnitude was an M 5.0 on December

1, 2023. The only moderately large earthquake in the area in the past 25 years was an

M 5.8 on November 29, 2000. At the time of the event of M 5.0 on December 1, 2023, this

summary noted:

 

"... an M 5.0 in Central Alaska. NEIC reported this event was felt with intensity up to V in Petersville, Alaska.

EMSC reported it was felt with moderate intensity in Central Alaska at Wasilla,

Palmer, Knik-Fairview, Eagle River, Anchorage, This event occurred within minutes

of the height of the arrival of the CME  around 06:00 UT (see above) and was

probably triggered by that ionospheric disturbance.

 

The last earthquake within about 150 km of this epicenter with M>=5 in Central

Alaska occurred as an M 5.0 on October 4, 2019. Larger earthquakes hit about 200 km from today's epicenter

on February 6, 2022 and May 31, 2021. At the time of the M 5.0 on October 4, 2019 this summary

noted:

 

 

"Today's event was reported by NEIC to have been felt with maximum intensity V in the Matanuska-Sustina border of Alaska and II-III within about 200 km of the epicenter at Talkeetna, Willow, Wasilla, Chugiak, Elmendorf AFB, Anchorage.

This event of M 5.0 is the strongest within about 150 km of this epicenter in Central

Alaska since an M 5.0 on July 10, 2018 - the last of larger magntiude was an M 5.2 on January 31, 2017.

Today's event is about 150 km northwest of the M 7.1 quake that shook Alaska

on November 30, 2018 and may be a regional aftershock of that event." (October 4, 2019, December 1, 2023)

 

Today's event occurred within minutes of local solar noon and may have

been promoted by strong tidal stresses which maximize near this hour." (February 14, 2024)

Mount Ibu, an active volcano in the region of Halmahera, Indonesia continued the

current eruptive phase today. At least three major eruption occurred in the

past day. The area is currently off limits to visitors and evacuations of

local residents continue. Today's eruption sent ash as high as 3 miles above the pea of

Mt. Ibu. The eruption also included lava flows and considerable volcanic

lightning.

 

The most unusual earthquake in the world today was an M 5.1 in

Angola, Southern Africa. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity up to M 5.1

in Caconda, Angola with intensity up to III. The only event of M>=4 in Angola

in the past five years was an M 4.8 on August 31, 2023 as reported at the time

in this summary:

 

"The most unusual earthquake in the world today was an M 4.8 in Angola. It was

not reported felt. This is the largest earthquake within about 300 km of this

epicenter in Angola since a similar  M 4.8 on March 23, 2003 - the only other

event of this size or larger in the region in at least 35 years. That event

was not reported by NEIC till later and was not noted in this summary at the time.

The earthquake occurred near local solar noon and may have been promoted by

the full moon today" (August 31, 2024)

  

As today's event occurred within hours of the new moon today near local solar

noon, it is likely to have been promoted by tidal stresses with that alignment as noted

in this and previous issues of this summary:

 

"The new moon will arrive on June 6, 2024 at 12:38 UT. Longitudes which are sub-solar at this time area near 10 West and those which are anti-solar (local solar noon) are near 170 East longitude. These include, in the west the areas of Iceland and western Europe and portions of the central mid-Atlantic near the equator and in the east areas of the New Zealand/Tonga/Fiji/Kermadec and Solomon and Vanuatu Islands, Kamchatka and Northern Japan and the Kurils among others. These include areas where strong tidal effects and help promote strong to major earthquakes and such an event may be expected in the next week." (May 31-June 5, 2024)

 

Today's earthquake in Angola is the strongest within about 300 km of that

epicenter in more than 35 years.

The strongest earthquake in the world today was an M 5.8-5.9 in Central Honshu, Japan. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity up to VII in the Anamizu, Japan area.

EMSC reported moderate to strong shaking in Central Japan including reports from Kyoto, Nakagyo, Shimogyo, Minami, Kita, among others. An aftershock of M 4.9 occurred 8.5 minutes later. This coincides with the

return reflective seismic phase - PcP - off the core-mantle boundary from the mainshock. Many of

the largest immediate aftershocks of strong earthquakes occur at the time

of the return of PcP - 8.5 minutes; PcS/ScP - 12 minutes and ScS phases - 15 minutes.

These are almost certainly triggered aftershocks from seismic waves. This is an aftershock of the M 7.4 of January 1, 2024.

Initial statements from the Japanese authorities indicate that five houses collapsed in Wajima City during

today's earthquake. Some injuries were reported  including one elderly citizen

of Tsubata who fell from her bed due to a quake alarm. Express trains were temporarily halted

but regional nuclear power plants were undamaged. Current estimates are that up to 260

people died in the January 1, 2024 M 7.6 from the quake or aftereffects of the quake including

stress, illness and injuries with three still unaccounted for. Like today's

event the M 7.6 of January 1 followed a series of strong X-class solar flares.

 

 

A strong earthquake of M 5.9 also occurred in the region of the Northern Mid-Atlantic

Ridge. It was not reported felt in this remote area.

 

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 4.9-5.0 in Northwest Territories of Canada. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity up to V in Dawson City, Canada.

This follows a series of lighter foreshocks in the area in the past several days.

 

A major swarm of minor earthquakes occurred today in the area of Hawaii. This

activity signals a major eruption of Mt. Kilauea. Lava was being erupted across much of the

Island of Hawaii in this eruption which began today. This area of Kilauea

last erupted in December 1974, 50 years ago. This eruption may have been

precipitated by S-waves from the M 5.9  in Honshu, Japan. A minor earthquake of M 1.8 was recroded by HVO (Hawaii Volcano Observatory) as the P-wave from Honshu arrived in the Kilauea region 9.3 minutes after the Honshu mainshock. This may have been the initial trigger for the eruption at Kilauea. But the first earthquakes of note occurred as a major series starting the eruption

34 minutes after the event in Japan. The distance

between these epicenters in Japan and Hawaii is 60 degrees. Surface waves from Japan would have

arrived in Hawaii around 30-34 minutes after the earthquake in Japan and

would have been coincidental with the beginning of the Hawaii eruption.

Hawaii is particularly sensitive to solar/tidal triggering at this time

as it is directly sub-solar at this time and was sub-solar at the time of

the eruption. The sun is directly overhead at local solar noon at 19 degrees

north latitude on June 2-3 as previously noted in this summary as:

 

"Sub-solar latitudes at this time lie near 18-19 North latitude. This zone

could also see enhanced seismicity at this time. Active area at this latitude

include Taiwan and northern Philippines, Mariana Islands, Hawaii, western Mexico,

and the northern Caribbean including Puerto Rico, Haiti and the Dominican

Republic. Watch for stronger than normal seismicity in these areas during

the coming week." (May 24, 2024)

 

 

The strongest of these were of M 4.0  and M 4.2 - well into the swarm - which NEIC reported was felt with intensity up to V in Volcano, Hawaii.

This activity followed an M 3.4 in the Waikoloa area of Hawaii earlier in the day which was felt with intensity up to III.

The previous update had noted this event as:

 

"NEIC reported this earthquake of M 3.1 in Hawaii was felt with intensity up to III in the area(s) of  Hawaii in Waikoloa." (June 1, 2024)

 

An eruption of Mt. Kanlaon also occurred today. This volcano is in the central

Philippines in the prvinces of Negros Oriental and Negros Ocidental. The eruption sent

ash as high as 5 km in the sky. Immediate evacuations had not been ordered.

 

An earthquake of M 3.4 was widely felt in the area of southern San Francisco, California today. NEIC reported it was felt with intensity up to IV in San Francisco at Alum Rock.

EMSC reported strong Jolt in California at San Jose, Milpitas, Santa Clara, Fremont, Sunnyvale, Campbell, Cupertino, Saratoga, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Los Gatos, Ben Lomond, Aptos, Salinas, for the M 3.4. It was followed by an M 2.5 about 50 km to the north which NEIC reported was felt lightly in Antioch, California.

A foreshock of M 2.5 was also recorded in San Francisco two hours earlier. NEIC reported

it with intensity III in Orinda, California. An M 3.3 also followed this event in San Francisco in Northern California. NEIC reported

it was felt with intensity up to III in Almanor, California.

The previous issue of this summary had noted this activity as:

 

"An M 2.6 shook regions of San Francisco Bay, California today. NEIC reported

it was felt with intensity up to III in San Francisco at Orinda. This

earthquake appears to have been triggered by Solar Flare Effects (SFE) as it occurred near local solar

noon at the maximum output from SWPC Flare # 8120 - an X1.0 flare with the following parameters:

The strongest earthquakes in the world today occurred M 6.2 in the region of

the Kermadec Islands and the Prince Edward Island. These were not reported

felt in these remote areas. Earthquakes of M 5.2 occurred about 1.5 hours

later in Taiwan and M 5.0 minutes earlier than the M 6.2 in Prince Edward

Island event in the Loyalty Islands. An earthquake of M 5.6 also occurred,

but was unfelt, in the South Sandwich Islands earlier in the day. An aftershock

of M 5.0 in the Kermadec Islands followed at the end of an X1.4 solar flare

near the peak of that flare which was given initial SWPC parameters as:
