6/19/2015 — Large Mid-Pacific M6.1 Earthquake — rare event goes UNREPORTED by the USGS

A rare central Pacific magnitude 6.1 earthquake has struck.

The USGS is not reporting the event (yet) .. even though it has been several hours since the earthquake occurred.

Clearly the USGS is not reporting this event.

Here is a screenshot of the feed, and the program I personally use.. both the USGS website feed of worldwide M2.5+ earthquakes, and the regular feeds everyone uses for apps/programs.

No information yet on this rare M6.1 event.  Wonder why?

The last time we saw an earthquake at this location of any noteworthy magnitude was in December 2012, when President Obama visited Hawaii, and at the time the EVENT WAS NOT REPORTED BY THE USGS!

That earthquake was a strange event indeed….now we see this earthquake go on the omitted / delayed list by the USGS.

Very odd indeed.

Here is my post from the M6.4 which struck on December 27, 2012 , which is still up on facebook:
