Five strong earthquakes signal angry ‘Ring of Fire’

February 1, 2013 – EARTHThe Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’ has been angry over the past day, producing five strong earthquakes over a 48 hour period- not counting the 5.9 quake which struck Papua New Guinea. North-central Chile was the first to feel the Ring’s wrath, as a magnitude 6.8 quake went off at about 3:15 p.m. EST, centred roughly 40 km north of Vallenar, the capital city of Chile’s Huasco Province. Reports say that it shook buildings as far away as Santiago, nearly 600 kms to the south, and closer to the epicenter; some buildings in lower-income areas of Vallenar suffered collapsed walls. According to a Reuters report, one unfortunate woman died shortly after the quake, of an apparent heart attack. The Solomon Islands (Santa Cruz), in the south Pacific, were next, as three strong earthquakes, registering as magnitude 6.0 and 6.2 on the Richter Scale, struck just east of the island of Nuendö at 6:03 p.m. EST. No reports of any damage or injuries from either of these earthquakes as of yet, however the area is sparsely populated, with Lata, a community of just over 550 residents at the northwestern end of Nuendö, being the closest settlement to the quake epicenter of magnitude 6.0 earthquake off the southern coast of Alaska. Finally, this morning, at 4:53 a.m. EST, a magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook an already battered region along the southern tip of Alaska. The Alaskan Earthquake Center is apparently reporting that today’s tremor is an aftershock of the magnitude 7.5 quake that shook this same area on January 5th, and it is just north of where a magnitude 7.7 earthquake shook Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands) in October of last year. No damage or injuries have been reported from this latest quake. Although earthquakes around the ‘Ring of Fire’ have been known to touch off tsunamis, no alerts were sounded as a result of any of these four events. These earthquakes occurring in relatively quick succession, separated by distances of thousands of kilometers, punctuates just how active the ‘Ring of Fire’ is and just how unpredictable it can be. Although efforts are being made to put early warning systems into place, true earthquake prediction remains a lofty goal. –Yahoo News

    Alvin,

    Love your updates and info, I follow you site daily as you know. Living here on the West Coast in Washington my biggest fear is a major Earthquake. With all that is hapening in the Midwest and East Coast I only ponder when will the West Coast have it effects. I pray and hope that everyone is prepared and ready as I am. God Bless You and your website.

    For just a fun observation, I’ve never noticed until I saw that picture with the red outline, how much the ring of fire looks like a bear head.

    Just a big burp along the Ring of Fire, or a sign on something more ominous? I guess we stay tuned…

  9. Alex says:

    Buckle up and hold on tight as the ride about to start hope your all ready

    As far as earthquake prediction goes, I believe that Stan Deyo is the man to talk to. http://standeyo.com/

  12. TruthHunter says:

    I wonder how many earthquakes have been “downgraded slightly to keep then below the 6.0 or the 7.0 threshold

  13. felix says:

    hey alvin..do you think its a good idea to move to miami or is it a high risk area? im currently in nj

    • I don’t think any of those is actually worst than the other. Each region has various drawbacks, in the event of a major disaster. What I always say, is live your life today based on what’s happening now; live your life tommorrow in concert with the threat of what is about to occur.

      Best wishes, Felix and thanks for writing in

    Santa Cruz has been shaking all day….

    We also had several earthquakes off the Oregon Coast two days in a row Jan. 30th, and 31st I believe.

    I was wondering the same thing as Truthseeker. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if they were doing just what was suggested by their post. I have noticed lately that many of the recent quakes that were rather large we downgraded after the first numbers were released. I would assume their equipment is top of the line so are the readings innaccurate to begin with or is someone modifying them after the fact? Keep up the good work Alvin. Without your daily updates none of us would have a clue what all is happening around the world.
