8 to 15 October last quarter @ 07:33

All the tropical storms of the last few spells had run out. Little was showing on the NEIC earthquakes list. Just these few large enough to be heard around the world:

6th
4.1 M. OFFSHORE COQUIMBO, CHILE
4.7 M. SOUTHERN XINJIANG, CHINA
4.1 M. GULF OF CALIFORNIA
4.1 M. REVILLA GIGEDO ISLANDS REGION
4.5 M. SOUTH OF THE FIJI ISLANDS
4.6 M. IZU ISLANDS, JAPAN REGION
4.9 M. NORTHERN MID-ATLANTIC RIDGE
4.6 M. OFFSHORE VALPARAISO, CHILE
4.8 M. SVALBARD REGION

Then things kicked off with a 5.6 and a couple of 5.3Mag quakes:

7th

5.3 M. AZERBAIJAN
4.5 M. BANDA SEA
4.3 M. PAPUA, INDONESIA
4.5 M. OFF THE COAST OF EL SALVADOR
5.3 M. NEW BRITAIN REGION, PAPUA NEW GUINEA
4.7 M. SAMOA ISLANDS REGION
4.4 M. OFF THE COAST OF COSTA RICA
5.6 M. LUZON, PHILIPPINES
4.4 M. KOMANDORSKIYE OSTROVA, RUSSIA REGION
4.7 M. TONGA

So I looked at the first part of the list again and there it was; a starter from Fiji at 4.5M. So I looked to see if there were any more. Yes a Tongan at 4.7.
(the list starts at the bottom for each day but I put the days in a different sequence to the one you will find at:

8th (so far)

4.5 M. NORTHWESTERN IRAN
6.0 M. GULF OF CALIFORNIA
4.2 M. ANTOFAGASTA, CHILE
5.8 M. ANTOFAGASTA, CHILE
4.1 M. OFFSHORE VALPARAISO, CHILE
4.7 M. FIJI REGION

Anyway at the start of this spell the tropical storm Prapiroon: looks like turning into a massive typhoon.

  1. Ex Hurricane Nadine is shown here as a Blocking Low in the middle of the picture.It finally dies as a pair of not insignificant earthquakes -I don't know where, bleeding onto the European mainland thus:

  2. Perhaps the above doesn't belong on this thread. Neither does the following:Magnitude 6.7 NEAR THE SOUTH COAST OF PAPUA, INDONESIA October 12, 2012Magnitude 6.4 ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN IS., ALASKA September 26, 2012Magnitude 7.6 COSTA RICA September 05, 2012Magnitude 7.6 PHILIPPINE ISLANDS REGION August 31, 2012Magnitude 6.8 JAN MAYEN ISLAND REGION August 30, 2012Magnitude 7.3 OFFSHORE EL SALVADOR August 27, 2012Magnitude 6.6 MOLUCCA SEA August 26, 2012Magnitude 7.7 SEA OF OKHOTSK August 14, 2012Magnitude 6.7 MAURITIUS – REUNION REGION July 26, 2012Magnitude 6.5 SOLOMON ISLANDS July 25, 2012Magnitude 6.7 SANTIAGO DEL ESTERO, ARGENTINA May 28, 2012Magnitude 6.7 TONGA April 28, 2012Magnitude 6.6 NEAR THE NORTH COAST OF PAPUA, INDONESIA April 21, 2012Magnitude 6.8 EASTERN NEW GUINEA REG, PAPUA NEW GUINEA April 17, 2012Magnitude 6.7 OFFSHORE VALPARAISO, CHILE April 17, 2012Magnitude 6.5 VANUATU April 14, 2012Magnitude 6.9 GULF OF CALIFORNIA April 12, 2012Magnitude 6.5 MICHOACAN, MEXICO April 11, 2012Magnitude 8.2 OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA April 11, 2012Magnitude 8.6 OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA April 11, 2012Magnitude 7.1 MAULE, CHILE March 25, 2012Magnitude 6.6 NEW GUINEA, PAPUA NEW GUINEA March 21, 2012Magnitude 7.4 OAXACA, MEXICO March 20, 2012Magnitude 6.9 OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN March 14, 2012Magnitude 6.7 VANUATU March 09, 2012Magnitude 6.6 SOUTHEAST OF THE LOYALTY ISLANDS March 03, 2012Magnitude 6.7 SOUTHWESTERN SIBERIA, RUSSIA February 26, 2012Magnitude 6.0 OFF THE COAST OF OREGON February 15, 2012Magnitude 6.4 SOLOMON ISLANDS February 14, 2012Magnitude 6.7 NEGROS – CEBU REGION, PHILIPPINES February 06, 2012Magnitude 7.1 VANUATU February 02, 2012Magnitude 6.6 SOUTH SHETLAND ISLANDS January 15, 2012Magnitude 7.2 OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA January 10, 2012Magnitude 6.6 SANTA CRUZ ISLANDS January 09, 2012Magnitude 6.8 IZU ISLANDS, JAPAN REGION January 01, 2012http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinthenews/The argument on the Usenet board above mentioned an air crash. These accidents tend to occur with spells in which significant earthquakes also occur. So do other disastrous traffic events notably ferries capsizing or large ships running aground/colliding.Search for yourselves and see.

  3. At last some honest discussion is taking place in public about the state of Britain's badly run Meteorological Office.Whiler the funds available to the service allow data to be collected it is actively encouraged to not tell anyone what that data is.On top of which, the treatment of experts is deplorable. The agency had committed itself to automation at the price of experts who could use their knowledge to moderate errors.Now senior meteorological officers are enduring pay cuts. In a part of the civil service that relies on recruits that have excellent maths and physics abilities.(A commodity that has always been in short supply.)When you rate the career's job prospects, you have to wonder why anyone with a much sought after education would even consider the occupation.http://groups.google.com/group/uk.sci.weather/browse_frm/thread/f422b310121d1909#

  4. As with coal mine disasters, they all tend to happen to the usual suspects.1. Never travel with a company whose safety record is poor when there are sufficient tropical storms to make you think pilot error is going to be likely.2. You want more?What kind of an idiot are you?
