Christchurch early damage - click on this picture for a local report and to look at the full image

Earthquake Report comment :

Latest updates can be found below

Although FELT reports are coming in strong to very strong shaking in and near the city. Look at the detailed felt reports arriving at the USGS

GDACS issued a ORANGE alert for this dangerous earthquake (if data is confirmed).
The depth of 34 km is shallow enough to cause problems.
The earthquake happened in the middle of the New Zealand night.
If the epicenter data are correct, the epicenter is located in the town of Lyttleton, just outside Christchurch
USGS has just improved his readings with an epicenter 30 km from Christchurch, but with a shallow depth op only 16 km.
GDACS calculations are giving a local tsunami in the immediate vicinity of the epicenter of 30 cm.
USGS gas decreased the Magnitude to M 7.2, better but still violent.
Christchurch is one the worst places an earthquake can strike.
Power in the city is OUT, Damage to houses and roads has been reported. Power is out until Dunedin in the far south of the South Island
As it is in the middle of the night and as the power is out in big parts of the South Island, Only small portions of information come out of the epicenter area.
First heavy aftershock of Magnitude 5.7 rattles the same area

Update 18:00 UTC : Epicenter has been relocated to Springbank and Rangiora, both farming communities. Local newspapers have no reports so far on what is going on.

First pictures of the New Zealand earthquake in Christchurch - click on the photo for the link to the Press.co.nz

Update 18:09 UTC : Reuters Alertnet reports : no casualties but widespread reports of damage, authorities said. Read the full report. Earthquake-report.com comment : it is far to early to have adequate readings on the damage and injuries as it is night and as it will take a couple of hours before all data can be broyght together.

Update 18:18 UTC : Susan Mary Ross reports from Christchurch (via our facebook site)That’s the biggest I can recall in 50 years. We lost many special plates and crocery that rocked of the shelves and a Don Binney print fell from the wall smashing its glass. Furniture and boxes fell the place looks like a bomb site. Puppy is cowering under my desk and won’t come out. Luck…y it wasn’t much worse and just seems to be damage to property. Hope all is well it everyone else. Blessings!

Update 18:20 UTC : Power is completely out in NOrthern Christchurch (the epicenter of the quake is 30 km north of Christchurch).  Almost all houses have broken glass, china, etc.  Civil Defense department will soon decide whether to call a National Crisis.
The present earthquake is one of the biggest earthquakes  in recorded history on the South Island.
The quake has been felt as far as Wellington.

Update 18:47 UTC : Magnitude has been further downgraded to M 7.0 (a big difference with 7.4).
New depth is 12 km (source USGS).
New epicenter is just north of Waddington and Springfield, 2 small farming communities

Update 18:56 UTC : we have renewed all the links of the important maps as after recalculation, the coordinates, epicenter etc. have been changed.
The most importnat now is to find out the damaga en eventual injuries in Waddington, Springfield, Annat and Sheffield.

Update 19:03 UTC : The damage will be far greater than initially expected. This is a facebook report of our special site just in  from Melony Davison :  Not much of a ride for me 😦 it distroyed half my house, the retaining wall colapsed onto the nieghbours hosue. But thankgod for insurance and we are all safe!)
Based on this report and other fractioned reports found on many places on the internet : the damage is far greater than initially admitted. Another 2 or 3 hours will be needed to have a better view on the impact.

Update 19:03 UTC : Limited damage reported in South Canterbury.

Update 20:13 UTC : First daylight pictures of the damage
Testimony of Jasmine Erridge : the ceiling caved in on my son while he was asleep in his bed… thank god he’s ok, im ok, familys ok. thank goodness have just moved and hadnt had a chance to hang heavy stuff on the wall yet!!

Update 20:58 UTC : Power is still down in rural Canterbury. Most of the injured people have glass cuts (from broken windows) and broken bones. Aftershocks are still going on and will continue for days and even weeks. People in Christchurch and surrounding areas will have to get used on these aftershocks, just as the Chile people had to after the M 8.8 earthquake from February 27.

Update 21:20 UTC : Seaside suburb on standby to evacuate as flooding may be possible.  As most of the Cell Phone towers are running on batteries since the earthquake struck, they will do down within a couple of hours.

Iran is criss-crossed with fault lines and is regularly hit by earthquakes, experiencing at least one slight tremor every day on average.
The worst in recent times hit Bam in southeastern Kerman province in December 2003, killing 31,000 people – about a quarter of its population – and destroying the city’s ancient mud-built citadel.
The deadliest quake in the country was in June 1990 and measured 7.7 on the Richter scale. About 37,000 people were killed and more than 100,000 injured in the northwestern provinces of Gilan and Zanjan. It devastated 27 towns and about 1,870 villages.

Mexico – M 6.1 – Strong seaquake at a safe distance of Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo

Fault zones of the Mexico August 24, 2010 earthquake - courtesy EMSC

Earthquake Report comment :
A strong shallow seaquake struck right on the fault line where the Pacific plate and the smaller Cocos plate collide.  The epicenter was though on a safe distance of almost 300 km out of the Mexican coast.
The earthquake was felt by some as a weak shaking, with of course no damage or injuries.
In this area, it is not the main fault line where today’s earthquake occurred (collision of Pacific and Cocos plate) which causes the highest risk, but the fault line closer to the coast where the Cocos plate and/or the smaller Rivera plate subducts under the North American plate (the steep sea ridge can clearly be seen on the Google satellite map and on the above fault line map). The biggest movement comes from the Cocos plate who travels at a rate of 40 mm/year under the North American plate.

On January 22, 2003 a large massive earthquake struck the coastal waters only 50 km from Manzanillo. This earthquake was also called the Colima earthquake (area name).
At least 29 people killed, 300 injured, about 10,000 homeless, 2,005 houses destroyed and 6,615 damaged. Most of the deaths and damage occurred in the Villa de Alvarez-Colima area. Extensive damage (VIII) at Colima and Tecoman.
Landslides closed a segment of the Colima-Guadalajara Highway and the port at Manzanillo.  A local tsunami of about 1 m  was recorded at Manzanillo.

The most deadly earthquake in the region occurred about 170 km to the south-east on September 19, 1985. This magnitude 8.0 earthquake (also called the Michoacan earthquake) killed at least 9,500 people, injured about 30,000, and left 100,000 people homeless.

Indonesia – M 5.9 – Heavy seaquake near the island of Simeulue (Sumatra)

Update in green below

Earthquake Report comment :
No general Tsunami risk (local smaller tsunamis are always possible).
GDACS issued a GREEN earthquake report (see details below)
NO people live in an area of 25 km around the epicenter.
27,800 people live in an area of 50 km around the epicenter.
110,000 people live in an area of 100 km around the epicenter.
We have enclosed the seismogram of this earthquake to give you an idea of the travel time of the wave in the earth. We monitor tens of stations all around the globe and the Chiang Mai, Thailand station was the closest we could find. The signal arrived in Chiang Mai roughly 4 minutes after the earthquake struck and traveled a distance of 1850 km.
The magnitude of the Papua New Guinea quake was 6.4, a lot stronger, but because of the greater distance, the markings on the seismogram in Chiang Mai are smaller.

Update 12:55 UTC :  Simeulue residents could feel the earthquake at between II and III MMI (Modified Mercalli Intensity (= Weak shaking (ER))
Local residents rushed out of their houses when they felt the temblor. “They did not panic, but they are still traumatized because of the previous earthquakes, so they rushed out of the houses when the earthquake occurred”

Papua New Guinea – M 6.4 – Heavy earthquake in the Solomon Sea, 70 km from Bougainville Island

CactusBases

Image via Wikipedia

Earthquake Report comment :
A rather deep (51 km) earthquake occurred in the Solomon Sea at a reasonable distance from the Bougainville Island coast.
Papua New Guinea has almost daily earthquakes and this one has only a limited chance on damage and injuries.
The main danger of these earthquakes are local, sometimes devastating tsunamis, triggered bu undersea landslides.
A good look on the satllite Google map will reveal an epicenter just on the steep ridge where one of the 2 plates is subducting the other.
This earthquake happened in the middle of the night (4 AM).
On the positive side, GDACS has issued a GREEN earthquake report.
NOAA has NOT issued a tsunami report nor GDACS

Earthquake Seismogram from the Port Moresby station, PNG

Bougainville island is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire.
The Pacific Ring of Fire (or sometimes just the Ring of Fire) is an area where large numbers of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. The Ring of Fire has 452 volcanoes and is home to over 75% of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes.
