Last week there were no earthquakes reaching M6.
In the usual area, there were 5 out of 86 earthquakes worldwide equal to or greater than 4.5 and 1514 out of 1889 quakes of all sizes.
Percentage: 80.1%
Last week, again, there were no earthquakes reaching M6, though a M5.9 in Afghanistan was severe and caused both loss of life and material damage.
In the usual area, there were 0 out of 99 earthquakes worldwide equal to or greater than 4.5 and 1787 out of 2228 quakes of all sizes.

Second atypical earthquake in South Carolina. Both earthquakes recorded were very shallow.

The 1886 Charleston earthquake caused extensive damage in the city and throughout the Southeast, and was felt as far away as Ontario, Bermuda, and Cuba. Unlike many other parts of the world where earthquakes occur along boundaries between tectonic plates—the Pacific “Ring of Fire” for example—South Carolina earthquakes result from the reactivation of ancient geologic structures associated with much older tectonic events, such as the building of the Appalachian Mountains and the rifting that opened the Atlantic Ocean

The low level of global seismic activity was broken an hour ago when a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck the Philippines, which has recorded a total of 28 earthquakes in the past 24 hours. Most of them are earthquakes of between 2 and 3 degrees of magnitude.

According to Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, Philippines is one of the world’s most disaster-prone countries, the Philippines routinely endures earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and flooding. This archipelago of 7,640 islands in the Pacific Ocean resides along major tectonic plates and is at the center of a typhoon belt. Its people are among the world’s most vulnerable to hazards.

Estimated seismic energy released: 6.3 x 1013 joules (17.5 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 15080 tons of TNT or 0.9 atomic bombs)

Peru was also hit by an M5.1 earthquake

Past 24 hours
▪︎1 quake above magnitude 6
▪︎1 quake between magnitude 5 and 6
▪︎42 quakes between magnitude 4 and 5
▪︎114 quakes between magnitude 3 and 4
▪︎240 quakes between magnitude 2 and 3
▪︎478 quakes below magnitude 2 that people normally don't feel.
▪︎876 quakes past 24 h. Estimated combined seismic energy released: 8 x 1013 joules (22.2 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 19110 tons of TNT or 1.2 atomic bombs!)

As we can see, the earthquake in the Philippines contributed the majority of the energy released in the past 24 hours.

EARTHQUAKE REPORT PAST 24HRS

Prior to the M6.1 earthquake in Iran the past 24 hours were characterized by medium to low intensity earthquakes.

The 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck near Bandar-e Lengeh, Hormozgan, Iran. The tremor was recorded early morning on Saturday, July 2nd, 2022, at 1:32 am local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.

According with Volcanodiscovery , the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. In Bandar-e Lengeh (pop. 22,800) located 55 km from the epicenter, Qeshm (pop. 25,000) 103 km away, Bandar Abbas (pop. 352,200) 108 km away, and Bandar Abbas (pop. 352,200) 108 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.

The seismic energy released of this quake:
8.9 x 1013 joules (24.8 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 21301 tons of TNT or 1.3 atomic bombs.

So far, three minor aftershocks have been recorded in Iran

M4.2. 45 km NE of Bandar-e Lengeh, Iran
M4.3 39 km NE of Bandar-e Lengeh, Iran
M5.0. 49 km NE of Bandar-e Lengeh, Iran

Past 24 hours
▪︎1 quake above magnitude 6
▪︎2 quakes between magnitude 5 and 6
▪︎42 quakes between magnitude 4 and 5
▪︎102 quakes between magnitude 3 and 4
▪︎203 quakes between magnitude 2 and 3
▪︎384 quakes below magnitude 2 that people normally don't feel.
▪︎734 quakes past 24 h. Estimated combined seismic energy released: 1.1 x 1014 joules (30.3 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 26086 tons of TNT or 1.6 atomic bombs!)

▪︎Earthquake report for june 2022

Summary: 5 quakes 6.0+, 123 quakes 5.0+, 1275 quakes 4.0+, 3533 quakes 3.0+, 7133 quakes 2.0+ (12069 total)

Magnitude 7+: none
Magnitude 6+: 5 earthquakes
Magnitude 5+: 123 earthquakes
Magnitude 4+: 1275 earthquakes
Magnitude 3+: 3533 earthquakes
Magnitude 2+: 7133 earthquakes

So far March has been the month with the highest seismic activity and seismic energy while June is the month with less seismic energy released.

▪︎Total earthquakes Jun: 12,069
Total seismic energy estimate: 2.5 x 1015 joules (700 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 6 x 105 tons of TNT or 37.6 atomic bombs!)

Total seismic energy estimate: 1.4 x 1016 joules (4009 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 3.4 x 106 tons of TNT or 215.6 atomic bombs!)

▪︎Total earthquakes February:11198
Total seismic energy estimate: 3.5 x 1015 joules (979 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 8.4 x 105 tons of TNT or 52.6 atomic bombs!)
