Indonesia massive M 7.5 earthquake – second big M 6.2 aftershock

Earthquake Report comment :
Again a powerful shallow aftershock. The strongest so far.
Preliminary records show that the epicenter is again located on the southern edge of South Pagai.
After analyzing satellite pictures we assume that the most important inhabited village is located at the northern side of South Pagai. This location has not been directly hit so far. On the satellite pictures we can see a limited number of modern buildings.

Powerful 6.1 aftershock hits Pagai Island again

Earthquake Report comment :
Powerful aftershock with a preliminary epicenter at the eastern shores of Mentawai Island South Pagai.
GDACS has just issued a GREEN earthquake alert for this earthquake = very limited chance on damage and/or injuries.
Earthquake-report.com takes this aftershock very serious, as the epicenter is under the island and as eventually earlier damaged buildings from the main quake might collapse. Calculated models from USGS are expecting again a MMI of VI to VII.
