7.1 Mexico Quake Rings Lake FUBAR Bell Big Time!

Huge quake in south Mexico, on the Pacific coast jumps Lake FUBAR helicorders off the charts.

7.1 quake in Puerto Madero, Mexico



LA12 showed some big grumbles in the morning before the Mexico quake. But U. Memphis charts don’t show this big twang at 5 a.m. that Quake Watch chart shows:



Harriette points out that RSOE shows TWO 7.1 quakes in Mexico near each other and about 10 miles different in depth. One may have set off the other but they have exact same time on the record.

  1. 7.1 quake   – 0.16 km (0.10 miles) SE of Mazatan, Chiapas, Mexico
  2. 7.1 quake   – 0.08 km (0.05 miles) SE of Puerto Madero, Chiapas, Mexico

  1. Lake Fubar isn’t the only one that’s going to get it’s bell rung…

    I’ll be keeping an eye on the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico to for ‘sympathy’ quakes, and possible Tsunami wave action.

    And the East section of the Ring of Fire’s going to hop too.

      • I’m no vulcanologist, but it seems to me the activity at Mammoth Lakes has significantly increased over the past 24 hrs. This can’t be good in an area know to go BANG!!!

      • agggg! comment belongs on the YS blog … tryin’ to be tidy here! It makes it easier for readers to chime in if they can see the good comment.
        Yes, things are poppin’ ….
        and I wonder if the cart is in front of the horse here. YS causing S. Amer. quakes somehow …. then they pop off and YS responds with geyers etc.

      • …now up to 138 EQ’s.

        That’s one hell of a swarm, I wonder if the USGS are starting to get nervous about now 😉

        Is anybody keeping an eye on Yellowstone ?

      • Fcf… Yellowstone’s playing possum, there’s nothing. All the activities at Long Valley, which you don’t have a blog for…

        But if either Long Valley or Yellowstone go, then the sinkhole will cease to be a problem, because there’ll be almost nobody left in America to even notice it.

      • I’ve been keeping an eye on Mammoth too David. While earthquake swarms there are not at all unusual, the ammount of activity this time around does seem stronger than usual.

  2. So it took about a minute more to get to Arkansas recorder.

    Just what is this telling me I need to look south to find this Earthquake.
    This could be the chain of volcanoes along Nicaragua’s Pacific range.
    Part of the ring of fire in the Caribbean plate there been a lot of earthquake around Lordsburg, New Mexico lately.
    No it more North of Lordsburg, Nicaragua, New Mexico on the ring of fire.

    Bottom recorder for Louisiana sinkhole.

    This is one of those Arkansas recorder look at the time.
    X502 HHZ NM 00 : Temporary, AR

    Near Guatemala, New Mexico
    M6.9 – 2km NNE of Puerto Madero, Mexico 2014-07-07 11:23:55 UTC
    depth=60.0km (37.3mi)

  3. In the last 7 days there have been 189 EQ’s in the Mammoth Lake area…

    152 of them in the last 24 hours, and all but two of them within 2 km of the same spot.

    I’d like to point out that this EQ swarm is happening within the Long Valley Caldera.

    “Earthquake Swarms may Indicate Imminent Volcanic Eruption”



    🙂 🙂 🙂 Have A Nice Day 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • OK — I was going to not put it on the Yellowstone page (too far away) … but that sure looks like a trend!

    • The Mammoth Lake area appears to be going to sleep for now, though it it’s going to need watching.

      Everything seems to be getting super-sensitive lately, this is becoming worrying.

      • I think big Mexico aftershock is building up … energy stuck somehow looking for a weak area to come up through.

  4. Fatalities were 4 in Guatemala and 1 in Mexico.Earthquake Track indicates 102 quakes of mag 1.5 or higher in the past year, 4 of 4.2 or higher in the past month.
