MC2BackUp Post 1937 In September --- Large earthquake swarm rattles Long Valley Caldera




 September 29, 2014  California U.S.

Hmmmmm.

Over recent years, I've had suspicions about 

the Swarm activity that periodically takes place 

In That Area. 

Today, the Times had the following Link on Google+.

A large earthquake swarm is currently underway in Long Valley caldera, Mammoth Lake region of California U.S., east of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The swarm started on Thursday, September 25, 2014, 
and it is one of the largest earthquake swarms 
in this region in the past decade or so.


By Monday, September 29, USGS recorded more than 1 100 small scale earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 0.1 to 3.5 on the Richter scale.

According to USGS seismologist David Shelley, earthquake swarms in the area known at the Long Valley caldera are not uncommon. The last such swarm occurred in July 2014, when about 200 earthquakes of magnitude 2.7 or smaller struck the region.

Major solar flare measuring X1.6 erupted

from Region 2205


A major solar flare measuring X1.6 (R3 - Strong radio blackout) at its peak time erupted from Region 2205 ('beta-gamma-delta') on November 7, 2014. The event started at 16:53, peaked at 17:26 and ended at 17:34 UTC.

This region already produced several moderate to strong eruptions during last couple of days. Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) were generated during those eruptions but were, so far, directed mostly away from our planet.

A Type II (602 km/s) and IV radio emissions accompanied the event. Type IV emissions occur in association with major eruptions on the sun and are typically associated with strong CMEs and solar radiation storms.


Additionally, a 10cm Radio Burst lasting 11 minutes (560 sfu) was associated with the event indicatiing significant radio noise in association with a solar flare. This noise is generally short-lived but can cause interference for sensitive receivers including radar, GPS, and satellite communications.

Today's eruption is seventh X-class solar flare since October 19, 2014.
