6.4 magnitude earthquake shakes archipelago of Tonga

Tonga Nov 2
November 2, 2013 TONGA - A magnitude 6.4 earthquake has been reported off the coast of Neiafu, Tonga. The quake struck around 8 am this morning. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says there is no risk of a ‘destructive’ tsunami being generated and impacting New Zealand, the Pacific Islands or Hawaii, but says local tsunamis may occur within 100 kilometers of the epicenter. The United States Geological Survey says earthquakes below 6.5 on the Richter scale are ‘unlikely’ to generate a tsunami. A magnitude 7.5 temblor shook the Tongan islands in May this year. No injuries were reported following that quake and no tsunami was generated. -3News

  1. That’s like 3 pretty big ones in two days. It’s a warning.

    Teresa, if this is a “warning” we’ve had hundreds of similar warnings just this year alone. When do the warnings turn into something greater? No one can answer that question, can they? …and exactly what IS the warning? No one can answer THAT question either, can they? These earth changes are like a mystery novel that never gets to the final chapter.

    Just out of curiosity, I decided to see how many significant earthquakes we have had recently. There have been 12 significant quakes in the past 30 days, all but one being over 6 and two of them were over 7. That’s a lot of shaking going on.

    Morning Alvin hope all is well.

    FYI
    Large sunspot 1890 (BGD) is popping off..

    X3.3 Solar Flare
    A very radid solar flare measuring X3.3 was detected around sunspot 1890 at 22:12 UTC. Because the event was very impulsive, a large scale CME is sometimes not likely, however I will provide updates should any such plasma cloud be associated. The event was accompanied by a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) measuring 400 sfu and a Type II Sweep Frequncy Event with a velocity of 1380 km/s. Stay tuned for updates.

    The X3.3 event comes in as the third (3rd) largest flare in terms of peak X-Ray flux during the current solar cycle 24. For an updated list click HERE.

    CME Update: A coronal mass ejection (CME) is now visible in the latest LASCO C2 imagery. So far it looks to be directed mostly towards the south and away from Earth. More updates to follow if necessary.
