    http://earthquake-report.com/2011/10/06/very-dangerous-and-very-strong-shallow-earthquake-in-argentina/ Update : The earthquake was also felt in Asuncion, Paraguay

    Update : What astonishes us more and more at Earthquake-Report.com is that NO-ONE talks about the villages at a few km from the epicenter but ONLY about the provincial capitals (big cities of course). Most of the attention should go the the people living in a radius of 20 km from the epicenter location, even more when such a shallow earthquake occurs.

    Update : So far no traces of serious damage or injuries. Signs of broken windows in San Salvador de Jujuy.
    Mobile networks were out of business for several minutes in Salta.

    Update : The information in the local press can be called “minimal”. Even the San Salvador de Jujuy local press (closest to the epicenter) has only a couple of paragraphs citing the seismic data as the main content.

    Siesmic activity in diverse places. I lived in Posadas and Obera near Las Cataratas de Iguazu during the brief Falkland Islands war. The clay coloured Earth in those áreas led me to believe that the área was highly siesmic and volcánica at one time. I also discovered small fields of quartz crystals and amythest along the rivers as I fished for phiranas and picked avocados that are the size of grapefruits.

    I came here to get analysis of the Reykjanes Ridge cluster over the past two days. I am surprised it isn’t posted.


    • It wasn’t because the ridge and rift feeds the magmatic chambers of Iceland’s volcanic system and we already reported the effect was in Katla. One can expect more turbulence along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge if activity as Katla or Helka increases.

    May God bless All of His children struggling in disasters right now and the power of all of US go hence forth to help the blight of so many in flooding areas especially, I believe these places, but everywhere else also, that GOD needs to receive OUR blessings.
    And God Bless Us All

    People come here requesting (yea, demanding) information and expressing gratitude for said answers, but some, not all, tend to forget the work involved to provide credible information so that it may benefit the insatiable desire for knowledge.

    Thank you Alvin.

    Upward and onward.
