Tsunami  Messages for All Regions (Past 10 Days)

There’s also an issue relating to maintenance of the sensor network: Last year, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility issued a report pointing to what it said were “gaping holes” in the tsunami warning system. NOAA’s records indicate that 10 out of its 39 deep-ocean pressure monitoring stations, also known as DART buoys, were failing. Still more deep-ocean sensors operated by other countries are on the blink.

Officials at NOAA acknowledge that keeping the stations in operation can be a problem, and they’ve asked mariners to help out by staying well away from the buoys and reporting any damaged or drifting buoys to the U.S. Coast Guard.

This report is an updated version of a Cosmic Log posting that was first published in September 2009.

At least one dead in Argentina quake

February 28th, 2010 – 3:22 am ICT by BNO News

SALTA, ARGENTINA (BNO NEWS) — A strong earthquake struck Argentina’s Salta Province on Saturday, seismologists said, killing at least one person.

The 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck about 15 miles (20 km) northwest of Salta, the capital city of the country’s Salta Province. It struck around 12.45 p.m. local time (15.45 GMT) at a depth of 23.7 miles (38.2 km).

The Buenos Aires Herald reported that the earthquake killed an eight-year-old boy when a wall collapsed in Salta city, while several others were injured.

Even though media reports initially said the earthquake was an aftershock from an 8.8-magnitude earthquake that struck Chile earlier on Saturday, a seismologist at the U.S. Geological Survey denied that.

The seismologist said the earthquake struck too far away from Chile’s epicenter to be an aftershock. However, he said, the earthquake in Argentina may have been triggered by the earthquake in Chile. “We don’t know yet, but its not an aftershock.”

The seismologist explained that aftershocks are not the same as an earthquake-triggered earthquake.

My Note – this thing looks like its still moving – and most of the aftershocks are very large and close together – structures that may have made it through the original earthquake may not make it after the continuing structural fatigues from aftershocks and in the pictures, it looks like people are going back into structures to recover mattresses and household goods – that’s gotta stop –

There may be other pictures from Argentina and surrounding places where they have had some earthquakes at this same time and / or damages from the Chile 8.8 earthquake this morning. I should look around a bit more . . .
