Sumatra Earthquake Locations.

April 11, 2012 – The Locations of Today’s Sumatra Quakes: The map above, modified from the USGS site, shows the locations of today’s powerful earthquakes; as well as the location of the massive 9.1 mega-quake and tsunami of December 26, 2004.
The 9.1 magnitude event occurred along the Sumatra Subduction Zone Trench (see map) where the ocean tectonic plate is diving under the Sumatra Trench, creating very powerful earthquakes and a number of extremely explosive volcanoes (both Tambora and Krakatau occurred in this region).
The fear is that this series of strong quakes, close to the Sumatra Trench Tectonic Zone, is merely a prelude to another massive release of tectonic energy, producing a mega-quake and tsunami of biblical proportions. The December 26, 2004 event released along 1,000 kilometers (613 miles) of the Sumatra Trench (mostly to the north of the epicenter). Additionally, could this series of strong earthquakes signal a major volcanic event? Stay tuned to the Chaos Blog for the latest information on today’s extraordinary events.
