Alaska has enough active volcanoes that like to turn over in bed occasionally that jiggles are normal. North shore up there has been shaking a little and I think there is an active volcano smoking or spitting in the Aleutians.

A decent 6.2 in New Zealand yesterday but it was only light to moderate shaking for the lower North Island. The UK press went nuts because Prince Harry and Meghan are currently touring the country causing sensationalist headlines like "Harry and Meghan survive earthquake" :roll:

Details about the earthquake can be found here

Something is going on in central California. 10 minor quakes today. 3-4 range so far.

Something is going on near Mt Etna. Lots of small quakes not very deep. Hopefully just a smoke burp.

And shaking in inland Alaska frequently seems to occur within a few days of rumbles near Hawaii.

After seeing the fires in CA I don't know how you couldn't include them.
I think driving through fire has to be as terrifying as a hurricane

The Ionian Sea seems to be into milkshakes. There are minor quakes there several times a day. Nothing really big, but lots of wiggling going on. Something is happening over there. If there is an active volcano close it is talking to itself. Etna is mumbling, too.

At least one of those fires is from a campfire a kid thought he had out. The kid was brave enough to come forward. Scouting is fun, but they still need supervision.
One fire reached the coast near Malibu. One is pretty well getting under control.

Yeah, I agree, "Fires" should be added to this thread by the poster who created it. That's ironic in a sad way, because BaroqueAgain started this thread. I've been posting about the CA fires in the Vent thread because that's where BaroqueAgain posted on November 8 that she was getting ready to evacuate because of the fires. We haven't heard from her since and, with the devastation we are seeing in the news, that's very worrisome.

The Camp fire was not started by a kid's campfire. They suspect the Power company's lines and/or transformer failures started it.

The Woolsey fire burned all the way to Malibu and the coast.

I doubt we'll know BaroqueAgain's status until she herself checks in. Nobody has chimed in about knowing her location now or even pre-fires. I think I remember her saying she has a sister in the area but don't know about other relatives or friends she could be staying with.

Assuming she was in Southern Cal and impacted by the Woolsey fire, more and more areas are being repopulated. The report says the human shelters have been closed. There are still road closures and power and other utilities are not fully restored in all areas yet. If she suffered losses, I doubt she'll be able to focus on horseracing any time soon.

On the maps below, mandatory evacuation areas are in red, and areas being repopulated are in green.

If she's in Northern CA and affected by the Camp fire, the loss of life, damage and evacuated areas are even greater. There are still folks in shelters. I hope this isn't where she was living.

I always like to stay positive, so I'll just say some prayers and some
positive vibes that she's ok

No. She hasn't been on since that last pre-evacuation message, of Nov 9.

7.0 quake, Southern Alaska! :o
Aftershocks in the magnitude 4 to 5 range. Felt in Anchorage, but not in that strength. No tsunami.
There were some false tsunami reports.
This happened at about 9:30 local time for the quake.

There was a 4.2 mag quake near Fort Saint John in BC here yesterday at about 5:30 pm; and it was thought that fracking in the area caused or contributed to it but with this Biggie in Alaska more likely those are related.

There has been minor stuff for weeks both on the Kenai peninsula, and southwest along the islands. There's an area on the north coast feeling grumpy. Just little 2 or 3 magnitude grumbles. But I got interested when Fiji started having huge quakes (very deep) and the plates south of the Indian Ocean got very active. The Philippines has had a lot of activity, Japan and the Ryukus islands chimed in, Krakatoa and friends of hers are spitting at each other down near Sumatra and the east end of Siberia, the Kuriles is active.

Actually, it's been busy all over the world lately. Turkey and the east Mediterranean have been arguing and Chile and Peru have had quakes. Baja California has had minor stuff.
