What’s the world record for most earthquakes in a day/week at a place?
well, that’s closer to Hualien. I have “felt” many these days, but again it could be anything.
We are also feeling a lot of smaller quakes and tremors in Taipei (Nangang). Earlier before this latest 5.7 one struck, we felt like the building was swaying (we are on a higher floor). It still feels like it is moving afterwards, or maybe it is the same effect like after you get off of a boat.
All I could find on Google was Iceland: 800 in one day.that was when the Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted.
There is an under sea volcano 11 miles off the coast of Hualien. Exactly where these quakes have been happening. I wonder if its not the fault line, but the volcano getting ready to blow.
I heard about that too… How bad would a volcano eruption be?
“Earthquake felt and occurred Feb. 7 at 23:21 around Hualien area, forecasted measurement of 4.0 and above for the area of Hualien, Central Weather Bureau”
So how did they “score” in Taipei area? yesterday’s 6.5 translated into a what in Taipei? and how about today´s 5.7?
6.5 was a 4
5.7 was a 3
It’s like when you wake up with a hangover and something else in your bed…
Then click on the earthquake (to the right) that you want to see how it felt near you.
For example, click on the 23:21 at 5.7 on Richter.
You’ll then see what it “felt” like in the various cities/counties in Taiwan.
Looks like that 5.7 felt like a “2” in Taipei.
EDITED to add the english version website from CWB:
Follow the same steps as above.
Thank you! It is kind of you to provide a translation. Indeed, this altert (accompanied by a wailing siren sound) came in last night at 11:50 as well as tonight - before the shaking started. A few minutes later a follow up “Emergency Altert” arrived which includes the intensity info (I did not get a screenshot).
Oh Dear ! That sounds like , " I’ve never been to bed with an ugly Woman but I have woken up with a few "
Taichung just had a gentle swayer this evening.
Thanks, there seems to be a similar record of 800 at Yellowstone too (which again is a volcanic region)
On the Central Weather Bureau website it assigns a number to each quake, but a lot dont have a number, they just say “local”. Anyone know why or willing to wager a guess?
can you copy/paste to show readers what you are seeing?
check the intensity details for quakes. Local ones have 0 intensity elsewhere in the country
Think there’s a cut-off formula involved, based around how far away the quake is felt.
So 047 (4.1) was felt out in Taichung and Nantou, so it gets a number.
The 4.1 at 23.24 … um, that was also felt in the same 2 counties, so my explanation doesn’t hold.
