Japan, Taiwan Earthquake 2015 Today Strikes off Coast

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – A Japan / Taiwan earthquake today 2015 has just hit off the coast, near Taipei. The Japan / Taiwan earthquake today April 25, 2015 began roughly thirty minutes ago. No tsunami alert has been issued.

Reps tell news that a 5.1 magnitude Japan / Taiwan earthquake started today just after 1:01 pm PST. The quake was shallow. Reps tell news that the quake started only 14.6 miles below sea level. As a result the quake could be felt across the region. The quake was 47 miles from Yonakuni, Japan. The quake was 57 miles east of Hualian, Taiwan. It was 60 miles southeast of Su’ao, Taiwan and roughly 500 miles from Hong Kong.

Several quakes have been hitting this region in recent years. In July 2013 another quake struck the same epicenter. That quake began twenty-one miles northwest of Hualian and thirty miles southwest of Sur’ao. That Taiwan earthquake started thirty-seven miles southwest of Yilan and forty miles east of Buli. The quake erupted as well roughly five hundred miles east of Hong Kong.

In September that year, a 5.4 magnitude quake struck thirty-five miles south of T’ai-tung. It was sixty miles east of Kao-hsiung. The quake was also seventy-nine miles from T’ai-nan and roughly five hundred miles from Manila. And in August, a strong quake struck forty-five miles south of Hualian. The quake was the same distance north of Taitung City and roughly sixty miles southeast of Buli. USGS indicated to news that the quake was fifty-seven miles east of Lugu.

USGS tell news that “Relative plate motion vectors near the Philippines (about 80 mm/yr) is oblique to the plate boundary along the two plate margins of central Luzon, where it is partitioned into orthogonal plate convergence along the trenches and nearly pure translational motion along the Philippine Fault (Barrier et al., 1991). Profiles B and C reveal evidence of opposing inclined seismic zones at intermediate depths (roughly 70-300 km) and complex tectonics at the surface along the Philippine Fault.” They add “Several relevant tectonic elements, plate boundaries and active volcanoes, provide a context for the seismicity presented on the main map. The plate boundaries are most accurate along the axis of the trenches and more diffuse or speculative in the South China Sea and Lesser Sunda Islands. The active volcanic arcs (Siebert and Simkin, 2002) follow the Izu, Volcano, Mariana, and Ryukyu island chains and the main Philippine islands parallel to the Manila, Negros, Cotabato, and Philippine trenches.”







China Earthquake Today 2015 Strikes as Nepal Earthquake Aftershock 4/25

China Earthquake Today 2015 Strikes as Nepal Earthquake Aftershock 4/2

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A China Earthquake 2015 today has struck as an aftershock of the Nepal earthquake. The China Earthquake today April 25, 2015 began moments ago. Damage assessment is pending.

USGS indicates to news that a 5.4 magnitude China Earthquake started just after 10:42 am PST. The quake was shallow. Reps tell news that it started only 2 miles below ground level. As a result the quake could be felt across the region. The quake was fourteen miles from Chongdui. It was fifty miles east of Banepa, Nepal. It was fifty-one miles north of Kanthamndu and fifty-three miles east of Patan.

China has been suffering a series of quakes later. But those have been centered in Russia, officials remind news. The most significant was the April 5 quake this month in Russia, felt in China. That quake began five miles north of Zarubino, Russia. The quake was seventeen miles southwest of Slavyanka, Russia and thirty-eight miles east of Aoji-ri, North Korea. USGS indicates to news that the April 5 quake also began thirty-nine miles east of Hunchun, China.

USGS tells news today that “Shallow crustal earthquakes also occur in this region near the Main Pamir Thrust and other active Quaternary faults. The Main Pamir Thrust, north of the Pamir Mountains, is an active shortening structure. The northern portion of the Main Pamir Thrust produces many shallow earthquakes, whereas its western and eastern borders display a combination of thrust and strike-slip mechanisms.” They add “On the 18 February 1911, the M7.4 Sarez earthquake ruptured in the Central Pamir Mountains, killing numerous people and triggering a landside, which blocked the Murghab River. Further north, the Tian Shan is a seismically active intra-continental mountain belt, which extends 2500 km in an ENE-WNW orientation north of the Tarim Basin. This belt is defined by numerous east-west trending thrust faults, creating a compressional basin and range landscape. It is generally thought that regional stresses associated with the collision of the India and Eurasia plates are responsible for faulting in the region. The region has had three major earthquakes (>M7.6) at the start of the 20th Century, including the 1902 Atushi earthquake, which killed an estimated 5,000 people.”






Papua New Guinea Earthquake 2015 Today Prompts No Tsunami Alert

Papua New Guinea Earthquake 2015 Today Prompts No Tsunami Alert

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – A Papua New Guinea earthquake today 2015 has prompted no tsunami alert. The Papua New Guinea earthquake today April 25, 2015 began moments ago. It was not in the sea but centered on land. Damage assessment is pending.

USGS indicates to news that a 5.1 magnitude Papua New Guinea earthquake today started just after 10:09 am PST. The quake was deep. Reps tell news that the quake started 79.5 miles below ground level. As a result the quake could still be felt across the region. The quake was 27 miles east of Ambunti. It was 58 mile south Wewak and 126 miles north of Mount Hagen. The quake was also 131 miles west of Mendi and 444 miles west of Port Morebsy.

USGS tells news that “The western end of the Australia-Pacific plate boundary is perhaps the most complex portion of this boundary, extending 2000 km from Indonesia and the Banda Sea to eastern New Guinea. The boundary is dominantly convergent along an arc-continent collision segment spanning the width of New Guinea, but the regions near the edges of the impinging Australia continental margin also include relatively short segments of extensional, strike-slip and convergent deformation.”

Several quakes have hit the region in recent years. In May 2012, a 6.7 magnitude quake hit the region. It was centered outside in New Guinea, roughly forty-one miles east of Goroka. The quake could be felt seventy miles south in Madang. USGS indicated to news at the time that the quake was roughly two hundred miles north of Port Moresby and one thousand five hundred miles from Brisbane. Moreover, the region has experienced 6.8 magnitude quakes several times this decade. In 2002, however, the region suffered four deaths, USGS reminds news.

California Earthquake Today 2015 Strikes NW of Sacramento

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A California earthquake 2015 today has struck northwest of Sacramento. The Cobb, California earthquake today April 25, 2015 began moments ago. Damage assessment is pending.

USGS indicates to news that a 3.4 magnitude California earthquake struck just after 9:05 am PST. The quake was shallow. Reps tell news that the quake started 1.5 miles below the earth’s surface. As a result the quake could be felt across the region. The quake started two miles south of Cobb. The quake was twelve miles southwest of Clearlake and fourteen miles north of Healdsburg. The quake was seventeen miles east of Windsor and sixty-eight miles west of Sacramento as well.

Several quakes have hit the same region in recent years. In March 2013 another quake began near Clearlake, south of Lakeport and west of Interstate 5. The quake was northwest of Sacramento and Woodland and Roseville, north of Santa Rosa and San Francisco, and south of Mendocino National Forest. The quake began two miles northeast of The Geysers, four miles west of Cobb, and six miles west of Anderson Springs. The quake also began twelve miles east of Clovedale and twenty-six miles north of Santa Rosa. Officials tell news that the quake also began seventy-three miles west of Sacramento.

In June 2012, a 3.0 quake struck one mile north of The Geysers. The quake was six miles west of Cobb and seven miles from Anderson Springs. It was also east of Cloverdale and approximately twenty-six miles from Santa Rosa. The quake was centered seventy-five miles north of San Francisco.

Nepal Earthquake 2015 Today April 25: 7.8 Strikes Kathmandu

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – A Nepal earthquake 2015 today has struck Kathmandu. The Nepal earthquake today April 25, 2015 registered a 7.8. It has been followed by several substantial aftershocks, one striking moments ago.

The Nepal earthquake 2015 today has been one of the deadliest quakes of the year. Officials tell news that the latest aftershock registered a 6.6 and started just after roughly midnight PST today April 25, 2015. The quake was shallow. Reps tell news that it started only 9 miles below ground level. As a result the quake could be felt across the region.

The aftershock was thirty miles east of Lamjung. It was forty-three miles west of Kirtipur and the same distance northwest of Kathmandu. It was also forty-three miles east of Bahartpur and forty-five miles west of Patan.Several quakes have been hitting this region in recent years. In December last year, a China earthquake struck sixteen mile southeast of Zuobude. It was fifty-two miles east of Nepal’s Banepa. It was also fifty-three miles east of Panaoti, Nepal as well.

USGS tells news today that “the Tibetan Plateau is situated north of the Himalaya, stretching approximately 1000km north-south and 2500km east-west, and is geologically and tectonically complex with several sutures which are hundreds of kilometer-long and generally trend east-west. The Tibetan Plateau is cut by a number of large (>1000km) east-west trending, left-lateral, strike-slip faults, including the long Kunlun, Haiyuan, and the Altyn Tagh.” They add “Right-lateral, strike-slip faults (comparable in size to the left-lateral faults), in this region include the Karakorum, Red River, and Sagaing. Secondary north-south trending normal faults also cut the Tibetan Plateau. Thrust faults are found towards the north and south of the Tibetan Plateau. Collectively, these faults accommodate crustal shortening associated with the ongoing collision of the India and Eurasia plates, with thrust faults accommodating north south compression, and normal and strike-slip accommodating east-west extension.”

Officials also tell news that “In 1505, a segment of the Chaman fault near Kabul, Afghanistan, ruptured causing widespread destruction. In the same region the more recent 30 May 1935, M7.6 Quetta earthquake, which occurred in the Sulaiman Range in Pakistan, killed between 30,000 and 60,000 people.”
