Kiruna, Sweden
30 Aug 2022 • (Don't laugh ;-D)

So, here is today's article about a small earthquake in Kiruna, in the extreme north of Sweden, where they mine for iron/steel (which lead to that the city of Kiruna was/is being moved to a different place due to the risk of collapses there.

However, in the article BIG words are being used...for a 2.2 M earthquake, which I don't know if i should laugh, or finding it sad how reporters are using super sensitized language... If it would been the M 4.5 earthquake in 2020, i could understand... but 2.2 :umm:.

Well; welcome to 2022; small events, big words.


Here it goes:

Big quake in Kiruna mine: "The whole house shook"


Updated today • (30 Aug 2022) 18:32

A major quake shook the Kiruna mine on Tuesday afternoon. The quake had a magnitude of 2.2, according to LKAB.

"It shook the whole house," writes a Kiruna resident on Facebook. An area of the mine has been closed since the quake, according to LKAB. But no people have been injured. - There has been a pretty good subsidence, Per Juntti, communicator at LKAB. The quake measured 2.2 magnitude according to the first information from LKAB. That would make it the biggest quake in the mine so far this year.

"The porcelain vibrated". On social media, Kiruna residents write that they have felt the blast all the way to the new town centre, about four kilometres away. "The whole house shook and the glass cabinet with fine china vibrated badly," writes one Kiruna resident on Facebook.

Previously hit by major quakes

Quakes in Kiruna are not uncommon. On 18 May 2020, the mine was hit by Sweden's largest ever mine quake.

That time, the quake reached a magnitude of 4.8 on the Richter scale. LKAB has still not been able to resume full production in the part of the mine that was hit. It is unclear how the mine will be affected by Tuesday's quake.

Settlement earlier in the day: On the night of Tuesday, another seismic event occurred, with a magnitude of 1.6 on the local scale.

Could they be related?
- Hard to say, we are waiting for more information, says Per Juntti.

See the images from the 2020 quake area in the clip below:


(video in the linked site, in Swedish, from 2020 after 4.5 M earthquake)

In the clip you can see drone footage from the "Block 22" area in the Kiruna mine. Photo: SVT

I've got a few images from Kiruna's mine

back in Dec 2010 (and before they moved the city center)

If the translation is accurate, the article mentions:
A large earthquake shook the Kiruna mine on Tuesday afternoon. The quake had a magnitude of 2.2, according to LKAB.

The people of southeast Asia, Chile and Japan who are constantly being hit by M5+ would surely also be laughing at the sensitized language of the report.

When I saw this earthquake I started to compile data because there is a geologist in Mexico who assures that Mexico is the antipode of Carlsberg Ridge, then he foresees an earthquake of great magnitude, greater than 6 degrees in fact, between September and October of this year.

▪︎Carlsberg Ridge (between the horn of Africa and India) recorded three M4 earthquakes (4.7, 4.6 and 4.8) on August 28.

▪︎On August 30 the precursors began at 00:47 with a 4.7 magnitude earthquake and followed: M4.7 at 05:28:06 UTC, M4.8 at 05:35:58 UTC, M4.9 at 08:36:11 UTC and the M5.3 at 13:58:20 UTC

▪︎A very strong Carlsberg Ridge Earthquake occurred on Monday, August 15, 1966 at 10:20 GMT and was magnitude 6.0.

▪︎Coincidentally, on September 25, 1966 at 06:02 UTC (01:02 a.m. local time) a magnitude 6.0 earthquake was recorded 4.1 km south of San Jose del Pilon, Zirandaro, Guerrero, Mexico, :scared:

▪︎On January 21, 2003, the Colima earthquake was recorded at 02:06:34 UTC in southwestern Mexico. The earthquake reached a magnitude of 7.6.

▪︎Months later, on July 15, 2003, an M7.6 earthquake was recorded at Carlsberg Ridge.USGS earthquake report

▪︎The geologist mentions another example. On August 28, 1973 at 09:50 UTC the Orizaba Veracruz earthquake occurred with a magnitude of 7.5.

Orizaba Earthquake. There was extensive damage, leaving hundreds dead and widespread devastation, in several cities in Puebla. The death toll was at least 600, with as many as 1,200 dead, and 212 casualties alone in the small Ciudad Serdán. Major cities affected were Ciudad Serdán, Orizaba, Ixtaczoquitlán, Córdoba, Ciudad Mendoza, Zongolica, Rio Blanco, and Acutzingo. Wikipedia

▪︎The geologist claims that there was an M5.5 earthquake at Carlsberg Ridge that year. Unfortunately I could not find a record of that earthquake on the internet due to the moderate magnitude.

So we will have to wait and see.

Etna, Sicily - Italy
30 Aug 2022

An addition to what @Puma already reported revolving the swarm earthquakes located under the Etna Volcano. Vulkanet.net wrote an article about it as follow:

Swarm quake shakes Etna
by Marc Szeglat

Date: 29 Aug 2022 | Time: 19:41:12 UTC | Location: 37.74 N ; 14.76 E | Depth: 18 km | Ml 3.5

After low seismicity on Etna in recent months, a new swarm quake occurred yesterday evening. It manifested itself under the western flank of Fire Mountain and consisted of 29 tremors with magnitudes between 2.2 and 3.5, which are reported at the EMSC. There were probably also a large number of weaker earth tremors that do not appear in the tables. The INGV is not yet ready to display the quakes. A communiqué was announced, but apparently not linked on the website. The epicentre of the strongest single earthquake with M 3.5 was located 11 km northwest of Adrano. Its hypocentre was at a depth of 18 km. The earthquakes are not all located under the volcano flank, some also hit an area close to the volcano base. It is very likely that they are related to magma uplift. The region is also a typical location along which there have often been swarm quakes as a result of magma rise. The earthquakes do not necessarily have to be of volcanotectonic origin. Tectonic earthquakes on fault zones can also be triggered by stress changes caused by rising magma.

It is interesting that the tremor has been decreasing since the end of last week. Until then it was on the borderline between yellow and red, now it has clearly shifted to yellow. So it doesn't look like an eruption is imminent in the short term, although of course the tremor can rise in minutes before paroxysms. However, I do not expect new paroxysms now.

Etna is in a consolidation phase and is refilling its magma reservoirs. In the past, this process often took several months, sometimes even years. Of course, eruptions can always occur, but these are then often of a Strombolian nature and are limited to the summit craters. There are currently no indications of an imminent eruption.

Limited public relations work by INGV and LGS

Unfortunately, the public relations work of INGV and LGS regarding Etna is weakening. The INGV published the last weekly bulletin on Etna on 2 August. Maybe the person in charge is just on holiday, or maybe it only comes irregularly. Publication was already suspended in April. The LGS website has been down for a long time and only shows data on Stromboli, but has stopped its daily bulletin updates. I can only speculate about the reasons: perhaps it was due to a lack of money/personnel, or because they no longer want to make their data available to the general public. In any case, it is a regrettable trend.

Update: In the meantime, 39 quakes with magnitudes between 1.5 and 3.5 have been reported by the INGV.


END OF ARTICLE

PS:
I need to ask Sal my husband, if his sister, brother and mom have felt these earthquakes, since they live in the city of Adrano.

Addition to the Etna earthquake swarm.

I just asked my husband if anyone in the family felt something. The reply was that nobody in the whatsapp family group mentioned anything. So i guess, there was no drama what so ever ;)

I find it a bit surprising that 39 earthquake shakes flew under the radar… 🤷‍♂️
