Why Did the USGS Just Remove Two M7.5 Earthquakes From Its Live Map?:The Global Incident Maps news feed reported 3 M7.5 earthquakes off the Kuril Isla…
The Global Incident Maps news feed reported 3 M7.5 earthquakes off the Kuril Islands.
So why is USGS only showing one M7.5 earthquake on its map?
There isn’t just one quake but three on this USGS map. Via Global Incident Maps
This is weird, really weird.
According to the Global incident Maps, three M7.5 earthquakes hit off the Kuril Islands in Russia, early this morning.
Here again the 3 earthquakes from the USGS feed on the global incident maps. As you can observe, they all have different epicenters: 219, 222, 218 km SSE of Severo-Kuril’sk, Russia.
However, the USGS earthquake map only shows 1 of these three.
M7.5 earthquake hit 219km SSE of Severo-Kuril’sk, Russia, 2020-03-25, 02:49:21 (UTC), 48.986°N 157.693°E at 56.7 km depth. USGS
Here some videos of the seismic events.
Such a series of earthquakes would be unprecedented… Have you ever heard of 3 M7.5 earthquakes in a row? Never!
Now why this discrepancy, then? Why is this unprecedented event being scrubbed from the earthquake live maps?
The Kurils are known as the Northern Territories in Japan. The four southernmost islands of the Kuril chain – Habomai, Shikotan, Etorofu and Kunashiri – have been disputed between Moscow and Tokyo since the end of the second world war.
Now, let’s keep it short: People are already panicking because of the ongoing pandemic. So government officials don’t want to pour more oil on the fire.
