Hey all! Nate, here. Just wanted to let you all know that RP headquarters and the team are all ok. It has been quite the experience. Our office escaped all damage, however my personal house was pretty trashed inside. Lot's of broken stuff and no power for about 16 hours. My kids and I were able to get things cleaned up and we were thankful we were fairly well prepared with generators and other supplies. Alanna, William, and the rest of the team are all ok and faired well. Thanks for the concern and thanks for listening! 

Good news.

Great video!

Lots to unpack in this paper. I understand the desire to create a microplate between the volcanic arc and the subduction zone (essentially the forearc and the accretionary wedge) but then we could also invoke the same here in Cascadia land. It is clear, from paleomag and geodetics, that our forearc is moving at a different relative velocity from the backarc (North America) much like what these authors see  in NZ. There are indeed great similarities between the two tectonic systems and they are really complex. NZ's is much more seismically potent as it produces waaaay more significant eqs. than ours.  Thanks for pointing out this paper.

Fascinating Geoff. I didn't realize that the subduction was moving north like that. Thank you for the rabbit hole...{#Good-vibes}

And yes, that has been almost topped just in the last few years again.

I wonder how the new headquarters of R. Paradise held up? They're just a few miles north of there.
Did I miss an announcement?

2:30 something last night, MyShake yelled at me "EARTHQUAKE EARTHQUAKE EARTHQUAKE" and the little indicator told me it was a 6.3 and I should DROP! COVER! HOLD ON!

but we were 200 miles from the epicenter, so didn't feel a thing. And I'd forgotten I'd installed the app. But, it seems to work.

It was a significant event that caused large accelerations in the area of Ferndale (reported 0.9 g - If an acceleration exceeds 1 g that means it is flying). There doesn't seem to be a lot of structural damage except for Fernbridge that crosses  the Eel River and connects Ferndale to the rest of the world. It is an amazing bridge https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... so I'm hoping it is a settlement/liquefaction problem with the approaches and not the main span.  A great source of information is https://earthjay.com (he is currently traveling to the area but will have information within the next 24 hours).  It appears to be an earthquake in the oceanic Gorda plate which is subducting beneath North America. It is a common earthquake source. We had a similar event exactly one year prior to this one (just a coincidence).

If I am not mistaken, you could see the transition in wave form there. Geomorph can tell which ones.. I'm guessing the first sloshing was secondary and the final side to side motion was caused by love waves. (yes you read correctly).


Funny I hadn’t seen this thread earlier. It can be really difficult to determine the wave forms traveling through small bodies of water in buildings since there is so much interference (constructive and destructive) happening. Also, the building is an oscillator that is responding to ground motion based on its own peculiar characteristics (how it is attached to the ground, how tall it is, orientation, etc.). So, with all of those caveats, it looks like the video misses the p-wave (makes sense seeing they had time to grab the camera and turn it on), the first part could be an s-wave and the second set could be surface waves (especially when they start rotating). Pretty cool.
