Ecuador – Three people have been killed and at least 47 injured after the 5.7-magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador’s Pacific coast early on Monday morning. All three victims apparently suffered heart attacks. More than 700 families were forced to evacuate their homes as emergency services moved in to deal with the incident. There were around 15 aftershocks too which caused further damage to the affected resort towns, with the largest measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale.

7.9 Earthquake hits New Ireland, Papua New Guinea.

The magnitude-7.9 quake struck 46 kilometres east of Taron in Papua New Guinea, the US Geological Survey said. The quake was deep, at 103 kilometres. Deeper earthquakes tend to cause less damage than shallow ones.

The USGS initially said the quake’s magnitude was 8.0, but later downgraded the strength.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said there was a threat of a tsunami in Papua New Guinea and nearby areas. A tsunami measuring less than 1 metre hit the coast of the island of New Ireland shortly after the earthquake. There were no immediate reports of damage from the tsunami or the quake, though officials were still working to contact people on the island, he said.

The quake knocked items off shelves and caused a blackout in the town of Kokopo in northeastern Papua New Guinea, Taranu said.

Volcanic Seismic Swarm

Washington’s infamous Mount St. Helens shook more than 100 times during a single week with what volcanologists describe as signs the mountain is recharging toward an eventual eruption. The seismic swarm occurred between 1 and 2 miles below the surface and was too weak to be felt.

“Each of these little earthquakes is a clue and a reminder we are marching toward an eruption someday,” said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Weston Thelen.
