Wrong earthquake data Sichuan earthquake?
EMSC     Western Sichuan, China     Apr 14 20:31 PM     4.9     40.0
USGS     Western Sichuan, China     Apr 14 20:31 PM     4.9     20.7
The above values are both listed in our today’s earthquake list.
CEN, the Chinese Seismological Agency has reported this earthquake with a Magnitude of 3.7 !

VANUATU M6.5 Earthquake
A very strong earthquake with a preliminary Magnitude of 6.6 occurred 73 km from from Isangel, Vanuatu (All data are still preliminary). We do not expect any danger for damage or injuries because of this earthquake
NOAA report just in (22:19 UTC) : …A STRONG EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED BUT A TSUNAMI IS NOT EXPECTED ALONG THE CALIFORNIA/ OREGON/ WASHINGTON/ BRITISH COLUMBIA OR ALASKA COASTS… NO WARNING… NO WATCH AND NO ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR THESE AREAS.
BASED ON THE EARTHQUAKE MAGNITUDE… LOCATION AND HISTORIC TSUNAMI RECORDS A DAMAGING TSUNAMI IS NOT EXPECTED ALONG THE CALIFORNIA/ OREGON/ WASHINGTON/ BRITISH COLUMBIA AND ALASKA COASTS.
Earthquake-Report.com does not expect that a tsunami has been generated by this earthquake. Local stronger waves are however always possible.
Update 22:22 UTC : – Early reports of EMSC states a Magnitude of 6.6 at a depth of 6 km. GFZ reports 6.4 at a dept of 10 km (all preliminary values).
- The earthquake may have been felt also in neighboring New Caledonia
- USGS has recalculated data and reports now a M6.5 at a depth of 9 km. The epicenter has been recalculated at 79 km from Isangel.
Update 22:36 UTC : Following the GDACS calculation there are NO people living within a radius of 20 km. In a 50 km radius the population is 5,836.
Update 22:38 UTC : USGS predicts that approx. 4,000 people will have experienced a very strong shaking. 21,000 people a strong MMI VI shaking and 59,000 people a moderate shaking. As people in this area of the world are used to very strong to even massive earthquakes, earthquake-report.com still believes that there will be NO serious damage or injuries.
Update 22:43 UTC : we have removed the tsunami data and map as the dates were wrong. The linked GDACS page went into an error afterwards.
Update 23:20 UTC : Just like in most cases of the very strong earthquakes, aftershocks are beginning to strike the area

M 5.9      2012/04/14 19:26      Depth 49.0 km      SUNDA STRAIT, JAVA, INDONESIA
02:26:42 AM at epicenter – Epicenter location see below in list
Strong nightly earthquake far enough out of the coast and also deep enough to be harmless for the islands of Java and Sumatra. USGS has calculated that approx. 150,000 people will experience a moderate shaking (MMI V).
120 km (74 miles) SW of Cilegon, Java, Indonesia

M5.5-M6.0      2012/04/14 15:13     Depth 62.5 km      KURIL ISLANDS
Magnitudes are varying in between the seismological agencies. Epicenter approx. 50 km from volcanic island Onekotan. Hypocenter at intermediate depth = no danger

2 very strong earthquakes in between Argentina and Antarctica (Drake Passage)
2 earthquakes with (preliminary) magnitudes of 6.1 and 6.6 just happened in the Drake passage. Preliminary distance to Ushuaia : 356 km. ER calls this earthquake NOT dangerous and the earthquake is to weak to have a tsunami potential. The 2 earthquakes occurred with an interval of 20 seconds.
Update 11:15 UTC  : Both earthquakes (17 seconds interval) have been recalculated as M6.1 quakes

2 not listed earthquakes in India
2 moderate earthquakes, measuring 4.5 and 4.9 on the Richter scale, shook Gujarat and Maharashtra on Saturday, an Indian weather official said. As our earthquake database is automatic and as the main international seismological agencies have not reported the quakes yet, we have bundled the India experiences on the “Off West Coast Of Northern Sumatra Apr 14 02:04 AM” information. As soon as one of the agencies is reporting the earthquake (what normally should have been detected long time at this Magnitude) we will move the experiences below the
We have received a big number experience reports from India.

We will report with more details as soon as the official agencies will report on it.
Most of the reports are arriving from Goa, Pune and Mumbai.
The people sending in reports are talking about light short vibrations
Update with some more details (07:35 UTC)  : An earthquake measuring 4.9 on Richter scale shook the western part of India around 11 am IST. Another earthquake measuring 4.5 on Ritcher scale struck Bhuj in Kutch district of Gujarat at 8.53 am.  In the second tremor, which struck Maharashtra, several parts of Mumbai, Thane, Raigad, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Satara, Pune and surroundings were shaken. The epicenter of the second quake was felt in the Satara distrct of Western Maharashtra.  Based on the experience of ER, but lacking more details like the depth of the hypocenter), we do not expect serious damage or injuries from this earthquake although Indian houses are very earthquake vulnerable (part of the information courtesy mid-day.com)
.
Update 08:17 UTC : EMSC and USGS have not reported what we think is the first of the 2 quakes. We have moved all India Earthquake Experience Reports to the new India input.

    seismograph - recordingUseful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world.
    If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
    For your comfort, we will provide in most cases a Google Satellite Map to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
    green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
    orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
    red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

    QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news. The 0.99 US$ QuakeSOS+ version will support the activities of SOS Earthquakes.

Very unstable furniture overturned. Small church and school bells ring. Appliances move on bench or table tops. Filing cabinets or "easy glide" drawers may open (or shut).
    Structures :
    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
