Tsunami statement issued after M6.1 earthquake in Vanuatu

TSUNAMI INFORMATION STATEMENT NUMBER 1 NWS PACIFIC TSUNAMI WARNING CENTER HONOLULU HI 1131 AM SST MON JUL 11 2022
EVALUATION ---------- * AN EARTHQUAKE WITH A PRELIMINARY MAGNITUDE OF 6.0 OCCURRED ABOUT 96 MILES SOUTHWEST OF UPOLU ISLAND AT 1124 AM SST ON MONDAY JULY 11 2022. * BASED ON ALL AVAILABLE DATA... THERE IS NO TSUNAMI THREAT TO AMERICAN SAMOA FROM THIS EARTHQUAKE. * SOME AREAS MAY HAVE EXPERIENCED VERY STRONG SHAKING. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * NO TSUNAMI IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED. Tsunami information center
Definition of bulletins
Tsunami Warning - A tsunami warning is issued when a tsunami with the potential to generate widespread inundation is imminent, expected, or occurring. Warnings alert the public that dangerous coastal flooding accompanied by powerful currents is possible and may continue for several hours after initial arrival. Warnings alert emergency management officials to take action for the entire tsunami hazard zone. Appropriate actions to be taken by local officials may include the evacuation of low-lying coastal areas, and the repositioning of ships to deep waters when there is time to safely do so. Warnings may be updated, adjusted geographically, downgraded, or canceled. To provide the earliest possible alert, initial warnings are normally based only on seismic information.

Tsunami Advisory - A tsunami advisory is issued when a tsunami with the potential to generate strong currents or waves dangerous to those in or very near the water is imminent, expected, or occurring. The threat may continue for several hours after initial arrival, but significant inundation is not expected for areas under an advisory. Appropriate actions to be taken by local officials may include closing beaches, evacuating harbors and marinas, and the repositioning of ships to deep waters when there is time to safely do so. Advisories are normally updated to continue the advisory, expand/contract affected areas, upgrade to a warning, or cancel the advisory.

Tsunami Watch - A tsunami watch is issued to alert emergency management officials and the public of an event which may later impact the watch area. The watch area may be upgraded to a warning or advisory - or canceled - based on updated information and analysis. Therefore, emergency management officials and the public should prepare to take action. Watches are normally issued based on seismic information without confirmation that a destructive tsunami is underway.

Tsunami Information Statement - A tsunami information statement is issued to inform emergency management officials and the public that an earthquake has occurred, or that a tsunami warning, watch or advisory has been issued for another section of the ocean. In most cases, information statements are issued to indicate there is no threat of a destructive tsunami and to prevent unnecessary evacuations as the earthquake may have been felt in coastal areas. An information statement may, in appropriate situations, caution about the possibility of destructive local tsunamis. Information statements may be re-issued with additional information, though normally these messages are not updated. However, a watch, advisory or warning may be issued for the area, if necessary, after analysis and/or updated information becomes available. Tsunami Information Center

Maybe it is a coincidence or maybe not. In Japan there is a belief that the appearance of a rowing fish is the announcement of an upcoming earthquake of great magnitude.

They captured rowing, the fish that announces earthquakes and other catastrophes
Specific, the oarfish is considered in Japan as Ryugu no tsukai, which means “Messenger of the Palace of the God of the Sea”. This means that if several rowing fish are seen in the Asian country, the occurrence of powerful earthquakes is close.
The appearance of saber fish is associated in Japanese culture with the announcement of the occurrence of violent earthquakes and tsunamis. Although it is a popular belief, the sighting of them in recent years has preceded earthquakes in various parts of the world.
In July 2020 they found one in Alaska, where a few days later an earthquake of 7.8 degrees was recorded. Meanwhile, in June of that same year in Mexico An earthquake of 7.5 degrees was recorded 10 days after the strange animal appeared.
From science they advance a possible explanation for the appearance of the oarfish and the earthquakes: deep-sea fish such as oarfish live near the sea floor and are much more sensitive to active fault movements than those near the sea surface. This would make them emerge when they detect strange movements, which alter their behaviors.

Four days ago in Arica, Chilean fishermen captured a 3 meter oarfish

Two days ago peruvian fishermen hunt a sablefish or oarfish of more than five meters in Pucusana

Today Friday, Jul 15 at 19:37 UTC a very strong mag. 6.4 earthquake hit the South Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile. Far south of where the oarfish were found, however, it does not cease to amaze people on social media.

The estimated seismic energy release of this M6.4 was equivalent to 60036 tons of TNT or 3.8 atomic bombs according to Volcanodiscovery data.

The past 24 hours have been characterized by mostly low magnitude earthquakes. Of note were a 4.7 magnitude earthquake in Pakistan and a 5.1 magnitude earthquake in Tonga.

23.026°S 176.980°W. 135.7 km depth

Quakes in the past 24 hours:

▪︎1 quake above magnitude 6
▪︎1 quake between magnitude 5 and 6
▪︎38 quakes between magnitude 4 and 5
▪︎120 quakes between magnitude 3 and 4
▪︎251 quakes between magnitude 2 and 3
▪︎481 quakes below magnitude 2 that people normally don't feel.
▪︎892 quakes past 24 h. (809 earthquakes in the 24 hours prior to this report) Estimated combined seismic energy released: 2.7 x 1014 joules (74.4 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 64000 tons of TNT or 4 atomic bombs)


▪︎Earthquake Forecast. This forecast was published 4 hours before the M6.4 earthquake in Chile. Possibly it is this earthquake. Let's hope it is, however, we must be alert in case a major earthquake occurs in the next few days.
