TRISTAN DA CUNHA: SWARM OF EARTHQUAKES CONFIRMED

 

By J. Brock (SARTMA TdC)

 

Further to reports published earlier on Tristan Times Online, a swarm of earthquakes struck Tristan da Cunha on the nights of 28 and 29 July 2004.  According to Mr. Rod Stewart, of the Preparatory Commission for the CTBTO Vienna International Centre, the main swarm lasted about eight hours and was located 30km below the 1961 volcano.  After the main swarm, there were a few individual earthquakes.  Seismic activity tapered off since then, however, there has been no report received for 01 August 2004.

 

According to James Glass from Tristan Times the appropriate authorities in the UK have been informed, although no one is thought to be in any danger from this most recent seismic incident.
