    Exclamation Oahu earthquake - 02/24/11

    A shaker today, about 30 seconds long, seemed more vertical, no swaying hanging chains.

    2:12 pm, I estimate about a 3, 3.5 from where I am.

    Anyone else feel it?

    K?

    Felt it too at Dillingham Blvd but thought it was due to construction going on nearby.

    Question Re: Earthquake - 02/24/11

    From:

    Update time = Fri Feb 25 0:22:56 UTC 2011

    MAG UTC DATE-TIME y/m/d h:m:s LAT deg LON deg DEPTH km Region
    MAP 3.3 2011/02/25 00:12:46 20.434 -157.003 6.7 OAHU REGION, HAWAII

    Nope, same event. UTC time is off by half an hour as well as 10 hours, I guess. +10.5 hours?

    Today's quake woke me up from a nap, just like it did on Black Sunday.

    After the shaking subsided, I held my breath, waiting to see if there would be another power outtage. Didn't happen. Whew!

    More info on yesterday's earthquake.

    Scientists weigh possible causes of small Oahu quake

    The cause of a small earthquake off East Oahu yesterday was not immediately known, but scientists suspect it might have been caused by fault lines or the weight of the islands on the earth's crust.

    The U.S. Geological Survey reported the 3.6-magnitude quake hit at 2:12 p.m. in the Kaiwi Channel. An earlier report, later revised by the USGS, described the quake as at 3.3 magnitude and centered just south of Lanai.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    Fooled me - I was looking at the seconds as if they were minutes.
