  1. IMAGE: THIS IS AN AERIAL VIEW OF HYDRAULIC FRACTURING OPERATIONS ACROSS THE JONAH FIELD, A LARGE NATURAL GAS FIELD IN WYOMING. CREDIT: ECOFLIGHT In addition to producing oil and gas, the energy industry produces a lot of water, about 10 barrels of water per barrel of oil on average. New research led by The University of Texas at Austin has found that where the produced water is stored underground influences the risk of induced earthquakes. Beyond supporting the link between water disposal and induced seismicity, the research also describes factors that can help reduce earthquake risk. "If we want to manage seismicity, we really need to understand the controls," said lead author Bridget Scanlon, a senior research scientist at UT's Bureau of Economic Geology. The research was published Oct. 31 in the journal Seismological Research Letters. Co-authors include Matthew Weingarten, assistant professor at San Diego State University; Kyle Murray, adjunct professor at the University of Oklahoma; and Robert Reedy, research scientist associate at the Bureau of Economic Geology. The bureau is a research unit at the UT Jackson School of Geosciences. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-11/uota-wwg110118.php

  6. Suirago City, Philippines last night earthquake, hope all is well. Praying for those who are living there. ?????? http://reut.rs/2kYDNEV Sat Feb 11, 2017 | 8:16 AM EST Earthquake in southern Philippines kills four, damages infrastructure 4h ago | 01:16 Powerful quake kills at least six in southern Philippines (Reuters) - Four people died and more than 100 were injured after a powerful earthquake struck the island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines late Friday, damaging some structures and cutting power in many areas, local officials said. The 6.7 earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 km and the epicenter was about 13 km east of the city of Surigao, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said there was no tsunami threat from the earthquake. Renato Solidum, head of the Philippines' seismic agency, said on radio on Saturday morning 89 aftershocks had been recorded and more could be expected but they were unlikely to cause significant damage. Friday's quake was the strongest since the city was rocked by a 6.9 quake in 1879, Solidum said. People rushed to open spaces and spent the night in parks and shelter areas, according to radio reports.
  7. Evacuation order and tsunami watch lifted three hours after the Christmas Day quake struck, allowing 5,000 people to return home A road in Tarahuin, Chiloé Island, damaged by the earthquake on Sunday. Photograph: Alvaro Vidal/EPA A major 7.6-magnitude earthquake hit southern Chile on Sunday, prompting thousands to evacuate coastal areas, but no fatalities or major damage were reported. Chile’s national emergency office (Onemi) lifted both the evacuation order and a tsunami watch three hours after the Christmas Day quake struck and told nearly 5,000 people who had been evacuated they could return to their homes. Onemi said one bridge in the area was impassible as crews worked to restore electricity to 21,000 homes without power. Officials had issued a tsunami warning earlier for areas within 620 miles (1,000km) of the epicentre of the quake 140 miles south-west of Puerto Montt, but the warning was downgraded to a tsunami watch. Eight mostly small ports in the area were closed, Chile’s navy said. The quake was felt on the other side of the Andes mountains in Argentina, but structural damage in areas close to the epicentre was limited, witnesses said. “There was a lot, a lot of movement here, but besides that nothing of note, there weren’t houses falling,” said Alamiro Vera, owner of the Cabanas hotel in the southern Chile fishing town of Quellon. “It was just scary, and some things inside fell.” A Reuters witness said some roads and at least one bridge were damaged in Quellon, on Chiloe Island, a tourist destination in Chile’s Los Lagos region. The quake’s depth was about 20 miles, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said. According to media reports, the quake was felt in the south-west Argentinian city of Bariloche. The area hit by Sunday’s quake was south of Valdivia, Chile, where 1,655 people died in a 1960 quake ranked by the USGS as the most powerful recorded in Chile. The region is home to several industrial salmon farms and is a tourism hub. An official with Chile’s national fish and aquaculture service said several companies had evacuated employees and were evaluating their facilities for possible damage. Chile’s state-run oil company, Enap, said its Bio Bio refinery in southern Chile was operating normally. The Puerto Montt airport was also operating normally, a spokesman said. Chile has a long history of deadly quakes, including an 8.8-magnitude quake in 2010 off the south-central coast, which triggered a tsunami that devastated coastal towns. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/dec/25/chile-hit-77-magnitude-earthquake-puerto-montt
  8. Earthquake hits, triggering tsunami warnings, after Nicaragua Caribbean coastline battered by hurricane A 7.0 magnitude earthquake has shaken El Salvador and Nicaragua, just an hour after a powerful hurricane hit Nicaragua's eastern coast. The double whammy was a grim test for a largely poor region which lacks resources and emergency plans for natural disasters. Salvadoran authorities issued a tsunami alert as a precaution after the tremor, which struck around 75 miles off the coast of El Salvador, at a depth of 20 miles beneath the Pacific Ocean, according to the US Geological Survey. The quake was first measured at a magnitude of 7.2 but was then downgraded. "Hazardous" waves measuring about up to 1m (three feet) are possible to hit coastal areas within 300km of the quake's epicentre. Shaking was also felt in the Nicaraguan capital of Managua, and as far as the Costa Rican capital San Jose. Nicaragua's president, Daniel Ortega, declared a state of emergency immediately after the quake. The country was already on alert for an hurricane which struck earlier the same day, as was Costa Rica. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties, according to the country's civil defense agency. Just one hour before the earthquake, a powerful hurricane, Otto, packing winds of 110mph, made landfall on Nicaragua's Caribbean coast. Thousands of people had already been evacuated from coastal areas into shelters - a total of 7,000 people are expected to evacuate in Nicaragua alone. Government officials said some people had refused to evacuate but did not say how many. Earlier this week, four people died in Panama due to outer bands of the storm. The heavy rains it was offloading were likely to cause dangerous flooding and mud slides, according to the US National Hurricane Center, as much as 20 inches of rain are expected in isolated areas across northern Costa Rica and southern Nicaragua. Schools were shut down and emergency teams were mobilised. Otto was the southernmost hurricane to ever make landfall in Central America, the NHC said, and residents were not prepared. The storm came ashore on Thursday near the Costa Rican border on the town of San Juan de Nicaragua, also known as Greytown. Residents said they were scared, and saw heavy rains and winds rip off roofs and bring down cable lines. In the town of Bluefields, panic buying meant bottled water and lamps were swept off the shelves, and some residents fled in boats while others hammered themselves into their homes with metal sheeting, praying the storm would move on. Otto will weaken as it moves inland and will likely become a tropical storm by Thursday evening, the center added. It is currently travelling west at around 9mph, chewing its way along both sides of Costa Rica's and Nicaragua's coastlines. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/el-salvador-nicaragua-earthquake-today-tsunami-warning-72-magnitude-quake-pacific-ocean-damage-death-a7437491.html
  9. Nicaragua's landmark Momotombo volcan erupted for the first time in 110 years back in December, 2015. | Photo: ReutersThe National Preventive System for Disasters, or SINAPRED, have activated operatives in the affected areas including the capital city of Managua. An earthquake measuring at least 5.4 on the Richter scale struck 7-and-a half miles from the municipality of Laz Paz Centro and in close proximity to the active Volcano Momotombo in Nicaragua late Wednesday, sparking major aftershocks, and fear, but no reported casualties. The earthquake struck at 11:57 PM local time, and an initial afterschock measuring 4.4. After the initial aftershock, the National Preventive System for Disasters, or SINAPRED, report that another 10 had followed. Even more are expected, according to SINAPRED authorities, who have also confirmed the earthquake is connected to the 6.1. and 7.3 earthquakes that hit Nicaragua in April and October 2014, respectively. According to Dr. Armando Saballos, authorities are assessing the situation and monitoring the activity of Momotombo, which so far has given "no indication that the volcano has increased in activity." Various news agencies reported the Wednesday earthquake measured anywhere from 5.4 to 5.9 in magnitude. The maximum ever recorded on the Richter scale was 9.5 by a 1960 Chilean earthquake. Thousands of Nicaraguans were evacuated after the Momotombo volcano erupted for the first time in 110 years back in December 2015, spewing lava, ash and smoke. The volcano last erupted in 1905. In 1610, the Momotombo erupted so fiercely it forced the city of Leon to move. http://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/5.8-Earthquake-Hits-Near-Nicaraguas-Momotombo-Volcano-20160915-0003.html

    Earthquakes in Japan

    702016105_E_cnt_01.mp3 On April 14 and 16, 2016, two massive earthquakes shook the island of Kyushu in southern Japan. The first registered magnitude 6.5, and the second, 7.3. Hundreds of aftershocks have since followed. Over 70 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses are located in the affected area, but no Witnesses died or were severely injured in the disaster. However, over 70 of their homes sustained severe damage and 17 were destroyed. Because of the continuing aftershocks, over 400 Witnesses were evacuated from their homes to Kingdom Halls, or places of worship, where shelter and meals were provided. The branch office of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Japan has organized a disaster relief committee of volunteers with construction experience to care for the needs of those affected.

  12. 702016106_E_cnt_01.mp3 A 7.8-magnitude earthquake thundered along Ecuador’s Pacific Coast on April 16, 2016. The quake and subsequent aftershocks caused extensive damage and killed more than 650. While the branch office of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Ecuador was not damaged during the quake, dozens of homes of the Witnesses were destroyed. The latest reports also confirm that one Witness died. The Witnesses have dispatched trucks with food and potable water to the affected area. Two disaster relief committees were immediately sent by the branch office to supervise the initial efforts, and they established two relief centers, one in the city of Pedernales and the other in Manta. Additionally, four representatives from the branch visited the affected zone to provide pastoral support. Media Contacts: International: David A.
