The Powerful Earth Shakes Again

Its incredulous, but we have had two more powerful earthquakes in the last 24 hours.  A dangerous magnitude 7.3 earthquake shook Venezuela and several adjacent countries….TXESP watched LIVE as the teleseismic waves propagated across TX.  The M7.3 earthquake epicenter was near Yaguaraparo, Venezuela: the event began at 08/21/2018 21:31 hrs UTC and a deep focal depth of ~123.2kms. The second quake, a magnitude 6.2 event, occurred offshore Oregon hours later at 08/22/2018 09:31 hrs UTC and was 10kms deep; only light shaking was felt onshore.

TX-ESP and BC-ESP will have plenty of teaching materials given the elevated global seismicity in the past 7-10 days.
