Broome earthquake off wa 100 times stronger than newcastle quake
An intense aftershock from this powerful quake off the northeast coast of Western Australia has been recorded by scientists, but what’s more is the region was just recently hit by a major더킹카지노 aftershock

Scientists say that although Japan’s earthquake was about 6 times stronger than the largest aftershock of a quake of that magnitude in the past 250 years, it has been able to withstand the shaking much better than the world was prepared for
The epicenter of Japan’s largest earthquake in modern times is just a few miles south of Kakehashi Prefecture. It was struck on Wednesday at a depth of 10 miles, and has since been centered at an area that sits at a depth of 2.9 miles away from the quake epicentre.
The epicenter is almost four miles to the east of Kakehashi, with the epice바카라사이트nter estimated at 6 miles, according to the USGS Earthquake Explorer website.
But unlike the epicenter of the massive aftershock of the 1906 Tsunami, which was centered three miles away, there’s a huge aftershock that’s centered in the center of the earthquake. That’s where the largest aftershock occurred on March 31, 2010.
The latest aftershock to hit the country is a magnitude 6.9, according to the USGS
An earthquake that felt like it was in our backyard is not a good way to determine whether an earthquake could happen here. An epicentre does not equal an area.
That makes it harder to predict where it’s going, given the incredible size of our homes and buildings
Even with the unprecedented magnitude of the aftershock that hit Kakehashi, the epicenter of the April 1 aftershock is very close to where the center of the Japan quake occurred.
A 5.5 magnitude aftershock, and with a radius of 8 miles, is centered about 1 miles northeast of the epicenter, and is located about 30 minutes north of the central Pacific Ocean, about 9 miles east of the epicenter. That’s how far southeast the earthquake’s center lies.
The epicenter of Japan’s magnitude 8.9 Japan quake struck at a depth of about 9 miles off the coast of Kakehashi on Wednesday morning
The center of the Japanese earthquake was around 5 miles away, but a 5.5 magnitude earthquake
