Global view of quake

 

The Anza group at the University of California San Diego operates a broadband seismograph network consisting of 17 three component broadband seismograph stations centered near Anza, California (see map).

On Friday, October 7, 2005 at 8:50 PM (PDT) we recorded a quake (preliminary Mw 7.6) located in the Kashmir region.

If you felt the quake, the USGS would like to know. Please add to the USGS "Did you feel it?" page.

Initial source parameters for the recent event are shown below. The epicentral distance (distance separating the epicenter and the closest station in the recording network) for Anza is 12404 km (111.54 degrees).

This map shows the mainshock (red star) and any associated aftershocks (orange stars). Anza network stations are yellow triangles.
