Earthquakes -- 2012

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

On the CWB site, click on Seismicity on the left-hand side of the Earthquake page, and then click on the Seismicity link that pops up under that. From there, you can see all of the earthquakes from any given month, all the way back to 1995.

Well, I subscribe to the jlink page, and when I opened my mailbox, it was like two pages of quake alerts. That was a bit disturbing, to say the least.

I just went to "stock up" on earthquake supplies. I went into a store to buy water, dehydrated food, medical supplies and a torch... but I walked out with two bottles of water and two cases of beer.......

Beer is always good - if you get injured it lessens the pain, and if you get killed it helps relieve the stress of those who have to deal with your remains. And if nothing happens after all, you can drown your disappointment in it.

Sure seems to be a lot more shakers these days.
Why not???

5.0 at 9km depth according to USGS, or 4.7 at 5km depth according to the CWB.

Same place as the Hualian swarm, biggest aftershock yet. To be fair they did say this would happen for a couple of weeks. I'm in Kaohsiung and I didn't feel it.

EDIT: found the article: http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/front/a ... 2003535448

"As the earthquake was strong and at a shallow depth, it is likely that aftershocks of magnitude 4 to 5 will continue over the next two weeks, the bureau’s seismology center director Kuo Kai-wen (郭鎧紋) said.

Kuo urged the public not to panic over the frequency of the aftershocks, saying they are just a normal release of energy."
