How far does the earthquake go? post #1  quote:



Hi all,

I have been reading news about the San Andreas fault in S California which says that the earthquake expected would be of magnitude 7 to 10! I would like to know how far would the earthquake of such magnitude be felt and how far in miles from the centre will the damage take place in such case?

According to what I found, the Asian Sunami earthquake, moved the whole earth, so it went around the world. Though it was too small to feel once it got farther away. But then it said, that people in other nations, actually felt the quake itself, which is 1000's of miles.


quote:
The magnitude of the earthquake was originally recorded as 9.0 on the Richter scale, but has been upgraded to between 9.1 and 9.3. At this magnitude, it is the second largest earthquake ever recorded on a seismograph. This earthquake was also reported to be the longest duration of faulting ever observed, lasting between 500 and 600 seconds, and it was large enough that it caused the entire planet to vibrate at least half an inch, or over a centimetre.[3] It also triggered earthquakes in other locations as far away as Alaska.[4]



The hypocentre of the main earthquake was at 3.316?N, 95.854?E (3?19′N 95?51.24′E), approximately 160 km (100 mi) west of Sumatra, at a depth of 30 km (18.6 mi) below mean sea level (initially reported as 10 km). The earthquake itself (apart from the tsunami) was felt as far away as Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore and the Maldives.

I felt a little tremor the day of the SE Asian Tsunami; but then we get them every so often, so I didn't make much of it at the time. They may not even have been related...
