Re: Massive quake just hit near Guam 7.1!
This was the strongest quake that I felt on Guam in years. The building was rattling for about a minute which caused people to panic and run outside. We should have breaking news on this quake shortly to assess possible damage around the island. A large military exercise "Valiant Shield" is currently being held on Guam. No tsunami warning posted at this time.

Papua has that huge volcano going off, so it's pretty much a hotbed of activity in the general region right now.

How's Iceland?
How's Yellowstone?

Anything else showing a distinct difference from this?

Thanks for the prayers! We normally have small brief quakes that hit the island at least once a year; however, this quake caused people to panic. Almost all buildings on Guam are made of re-reinforced concrete because we live in Typhoon Alley. Many our military service members who came for training from HI, Okinawa, and CA for "Valiant Shield" probably were shocked to say the least.

Silverblade...I was on Guam in 1993 for the 8.1. We didn't have power for over a week and lots of broken stuff in the house. You will probably have some after shocks for a while.

Hank Johnson (Congress D-GA) - Warns Guam May Capsize


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37998484


Andersen Air Force Base (AFB) (IATA: UAM, ICAO: PGUA, FAA LID: UAM) is a United States Air Force (USAF) base located approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Yigo near Agafo Gumas in the United States territory of Guam. Along with Naval Base Guam, Andersen AFB was placed under the command of Joint Region Marianas on October 1, 2009.[3] The two bases are about 30 miles away at opposite ends of the island. Administration offices for Joint Region Marianas are about half-way in between, at Nimitz Hill.[3]

The host unit at Andersen AFB is the 36th Wing (36 WG), assigned to the Pacific Air Forces Thirteenth Air Force. A non-flying wing, the 36 WG's mission is to provide support to deployed air and space forces of USAF and foreign air forces to Andersen, and to support tenant units assigned to the base.

Andersen AFB was established in 1944 as North Field and is named for Brigadier General James Roy Andersen (1904–1945). The 36th Wing commander is Brig. Gen. John Doucette. The Command Chief Master Sergeant is Chief Master Sergeant James Slisik. [link to en.wikipedia.org]

That should prevent major damage. The Nisqually Quake in Washington state (2001) was 54 km depth, and although a 6.8, caused limited damage.

Missiles fired Monday as part of the military exercise Valiant Shield sank a Vietnam War-era landing tank ship 247 miles northeast of Guam.

U.S. Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps personnel participated in the exercise that fired missiles and other weapons from ships and planes, sending the scrap ship USS Fresno into the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, according to Valiant Shield 2014's Joint Information Bureau.

The USS Fresno saw extensive service during the latter stages of the Vietnam War, and earned two engagement stars for service, the information bureau stated.
