I usually don't feel small earthquakes like this (small by Chilean standards) even when the epicenter is close, but because of the depth (114km according to the University of Chile seismology center) is must have been felt over a large geographical area:

Yes, I read that these M5+ earthquakes are a "piece of cake" for what people in Chile are used to. There is even a tweet from a broadcaster who is still working as if nothing happened.


Here, in the only country that shakes and the first thing you do is go on twitter to see the magnitude #earthquake #chile

Remembering how Gonzalo Ramirez kept calm and reported during the 8.4 Earthquake of 16 September 2015.

#CHILE Earthquake of magnitude 5.5 is located 21 kilometers from the city of Rancagua, the movement lasted 20 seconds, and was felt 230 km around the epicenter.

Sicily, Italy
21 Aug 2022

An earthquake the strength of Mb 4.1 has occurred on the western part of the island. Vulkane.net had an article about that, writing following:


Earthquake shakes Sicily

by Marc Szeglat

Date: 21. Aug 2022 | Time: 04:52:49 UTC | Location: 37.68 N ; 13.25 E | Depth: 04 km | Mb 4.1

sizilien.jpg


A moderate earthquake of magnitude 4.1 occurred in southwestern Sicily, with the hypocentre at a depth of only 4 km. The epicentre was located 12 km east of Sambuca di Sicilia. Palermo is located 41 km further north. Only 1 km from the epicentre is the town of Giuliana, where there was a strong shaking. However, the earthquake was also felt in a large radius, which is due to the shallow depth of the earthquake focus. At the EMSC there are 2 reports of perceptions. According to one quake witness, furniture shook and a cupboard banged against the wall. There are no reports of damage.

The mayor of Giuliana, Francesco Scarpinato, wrote on his Facebook page: "The citizens are informed that at 6.52 a.m. an earthquake of magnitude 4.2 with epicentre was registered in the area of the municipality of Giuliana. It goes on to say, "No personal injury or property damage has been recorded and we are monitoring the events in collaboration with the Civil Protection".

The INGV classifies the earthquake risk for the region as medium high. A report by Geoscientists says that while earthquakes can be even stronger than today's, the probability of their occurrence is not particularly high.


Year of 1968

This morning's earthquake occurred about 20 kilometres east of the area of the great earthquake sequence of 1968. At that time, there was an earthquake of moment magnitude 5.5 in the Belice region. This was followed by a sequence of further earthquakes with magnitudes in the 5 range - At that time, great damage was caused. At least 231 people died.

The village of Giuliana is famous among mineral collectors because a special variety of jasper is found in the fields of the region, which is the name of the village. Between the 12th and 17th centuries, it was mined as a gemstone in a quarry in the Sican mountains. Jasper consists mainly of quartz with mineral admixtures that give it a reddish colour. As a gangue rock, it forms from gel-like fluids that fill tectonic cracks. This indirectly indicates numerous faults where earthquakes can occur.

▪︎Immense pressure is building between tectonic plates.
Does not bode well for Bangladesh. Very poor construction in much of the country. Very large population living on what is mostly a sandy, unstable river delta. With poverty, floods, cyclones and a culture of grift, the ordinary people suffer unbelievable hardships.

Earthquake-in-Bangladesh.jpg


Bangladesh is one of the most tectonically active regions in the world. Bangladesh is facing a high risk of moderate to strong earthquakes that may result in widespread damage. It sits where three tectonic plates meet: the Indian Plate, the Eurasian Plate, and the Burmese Plate. Bangladesh is located close to the two subduction zones created by two tectonic plates: the Indian plate and the Eurasian plate. The capital city Dhaka is vulnerable to the earthquake as the country is in an active region. Bangladesh is extremely vulnerable to seismic activity.

Image result for Earthquake Bangladesh


There are many active faults along this boundary, such as the enormous Dauki fault that borders northern Bangladesh. According to a seismic zoning map prepared by
the BUET, 43 per cent areas in Bangladesh are rated high risk, 41 per cent moderate and 16 percent low . divides the country into three earthquake vulnerability zones. Panchagarh, Rangpur, Gaibandha, Kurigram,Jamalpur, Sherpur, Mymensingh, Netrakona, Sunamganj, Kishoreganj, Moulvibazar, Sylhet, Habiganj and Brahmanbaria are placed in the highest risk zone.
Seven major earthquakes struck Bangladesh during the last 150 years and only two had the epicentre within the country. Based on the epicentres of earlier earthquakes, Dhaka has crossed 130 years; Chittagong has crossed 250 years and Sylhet about 100 years, which now raises the prospect of a major earthquake striking Bangladesh
  1. Zone-1: Sylhet-Mymensingh is with the possible magnitude of 7 on the Richter scale.
  2. Zone-2: Chittagong-Comilla-Dhaka and Tangail are with the possible magnitude of 6 on the Richter scale.
  3. Zone-3: Rest of the country is with possible magnitude of 6 on the Richter scale.

Historical Eartquake in Bangladesh​

Since 1900 more than 100 moderate to large earthquakes occurred in Bangladesh, 65 events occurred after 1960. This increase in earthquake activity is an indication of fresh tectonic activity or propagation of fractures from the adjacent seismic zones

Hi @Yupo

Yes, in fact the lack of earthquakes greater than M8+ in the region is what supports the hypothesis of the "culebra" event.


According to the data you provide, there has not been an M8 or higher earthquake in the region since 1950 and specifically in Bangladesh since 1918 According to Volcanodiscovery data, there has not been an earthquake higher than M7

Major magnitude 7.2 earthquake - Netrakona, Mymensingh Division, 19 km north of Kishorganj, Bangladesh, on Monday, July 8, 1918 at 10:22 GMT 104 years ago

Estimated energy: 4 x 1015 joules (1106 gigawatt hours, equivalent to 9.5 x 105 tons of TNT or 59.5 atomic bombs)

Latest quake: Mag. 6.2 | 20 km NW of Hakha, Chin State, Myanmar (Burma) - 38 weeks ago


Are we due to a BIG earthquake in the region? A big earthquake is part of the coming "shock and awe" ?

Seems like we are safe until mid 2023
(eboard10) Someone on Twitter (Canadian earthquake researcher) predicts that a 10+ earthquake with the epicenter around the Philippines will hit between now and mid-2023 due to the release of an existing blocking of tectonic plates. How likely is that to happen?

A: 26%

But what sbout 2024-2025?
I had a dream last night where some sort of discussion was going on and I don't remember much except that it was stated that everything would collapse in two years. I had the impression that this was due to the total collapse of the weather, i.e. full bore ice age in progress. For what it's worth.

A: There are a few more steps before an ice age. Some of them not very pleasant.

Q: (Perceval) Earthquakes, volcanoes, economic collapse...(Burma Jones) Mass starvation. (Perceval) Plague. (L) Crop failure.

A: All of those and more.

According to SSGEOS opinion the "culebra" event would not occur in the Philippine region (Sunda plate) as a result of the absence of M8+ earthquakes in recent years but in the eastern part of the Indian Ocean.

Earth cracking up under Indian Ocean

Geologists have spent five months puzzling over the twin quakes – of magnitude 8.6 and 8.2 – which took place off the coast of North Sumatra. Events that large normally occur at the boundary between tectonic plates, where one chunk of Earth’s crust slides beneath another, but these were more than 100 kilometres from such a subduction zone.

Matthias Delescluse at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France, and his colleagues have an explanation. They analysed quakes in the area since December 2004, when a magnitude-9.1 quake in a subduction zone near Sumatra triggered a devastating tsunami. They found earthquakes during this period were nearly 10 times more frequent compared with the previous eight years. What’s more, 26 of the quakes that happened between December 2004 and April 2011 were similar to the 11 April quakes in that they involved rocks being pushed and pulled in the same directions.

Taken together, the events suggest that the Indo-Australian plate is breaking up along a new plate boundary, say the researchers, and that may account for both the location and the size of April’s quakes (Nature, DOI: 10.1038/nature11520). Although both are currently on the same plate, Australia is moving faster than India. This is causing a broad area in the centre of the Indo-Australian plate to buckle. As a result, the plate may be splitting (see map).
