[R1emcor] Chile Eathquake 16 Sept 2015
Hi,
at 2254UTC on 16th September an 8.3 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Chile causing tsunami waves along the coast up to 4.5m high in places. Five people are known to have died with many more evacuated from coastal areas.

According to reports from Chile, Radio Amateurs from "RED Chilena de Emergencia de Radioaficionados" are operational and are co-ordinated with ONEMI, the Chilean Government's Interior and Public Safety ministry.

At the moment there is no information available on the frequencies in use but updates will be provided when they are known.

EMCOM IARU R1-Earthquakes in Spain-11Apr2011

Hi,
  the following text has been received from Ismael EA4FSI and will be posted to the website soon.

Two earthquakes of magnitudes M4.4 and M5.2 struck the Region of Murcia (southeastern Spain) in the evening of 11th April, causing at least 8 dead and 167 wounded in the town of Lorca, due mainly to debris
falling from some buildings.

The Spanish Government has activated the National Plan for Earthquake Risks, sending to the area the following resources:  Military Unit for Emergencies (225 people equipped for Search and Rescue tasks), National Police and Civil Guard (400 people plus SAR dogs and gear to work underground, two trucks for special tasks and three helicopters) and the Spanish Geological Survey (mobile SATCOM unit).

The Spanish Red Cross has sent to the area 24 ambulances, 3 field hospitals and 6 teams to provide shelter facilities for 3.750 people. The Murcia Regional Authority is co-ordinating the operations through its 112 Operations Center and a Mobile Command Post, providing also more than 100 ambulances and a field hospital. Local police and firefighter teams are also working in the area.

It is estimated that around 20.000 people spent the night out of their homes due to aftershocks ranging from M0.7 to M4.0. The local hospital in Lorca has been evacuated due to some structural damages.

The REMER (Red Radio de Emergencia, Emergency Radio Network), an official emergency unit of the Spanish National Directorate of Civil Protection and Emergencies (DGPCE) made up of amateur radio operators, was deployed to the affected areas as one of the emergency communications assets enlisted in the National Plan for Earthquake Risks. REMER units used VHF simplex and repeater links to provide additional communication channels with the authorities.
A national network in HF was also activated to send real-time information to the DGPCE HQ in Madrid. As a government unit, REMER usually uses frequencies outside the amateur bands to pass emergency traffic.

The telecommunications companies operating in Spain deployed also 6 mobile base stations to the area in order to accommodate the expected increase in GSM traffic.

Mw 5.1 LORCA (Spain) on May 11th 2011 at 16:47 UTC

Last update: 2011/05/12 12:00 UTC

On May 11th 2011 at 16:47 UTC (18:47 local time), an earthquake of magnitude Mw 5.1 occurred near the city of Lorca, in the South East of Spain. It was largely felt along the Mediterranean Coast, in Murcia and up to Valencia, more than 200km away. Information on this main shock is available here. 8 casualties and significant damage has been reported in Lorca, a city of 90,000 inhabitants.
Details on this event and the recent seismicity are available on the Spanish institute (IGN) website. Live information is also available on the RTVE.

The earthquake was preceded by another significant event of magnitude 4.5 at 15:05 UTC and followed by 4 aftershocks of magnitude larger than 2.5 in the 4 hours following the main shock.
The region had been previously hit by an earthquake of magnitude 4.4 on January 29th 2005, leading to moderate damage. This 2005 event occurred only 40km away from the May 11th 2011 event. The Murcia region has been affected by five important earthquakes in the last 12 years, related to the Alhama fault activity. The two largest occurred in February 1999 in Puebla de Mula and in August 2002.

The limit between the African and Eurasian plates follows a seismic line which begins in the Azores and ends on the Western side of the Gibraltar Strait where major historical earthquakes occurred (such as the Lisboa earthquake 1755). To the East, the deformation spreads in two directions, in Southern Spain in the Betics Chain and in the Maghreb area. The seismicity is representative of continental collision.

To: Mailing list for IARU Region 1 Emergency CommunicationsCo-Ordinators

Hi,
The following article has just been submitted to the www.iaru-r1.org website.
"A series of earthquakes has struck off the coast of Honshu Japan around 05:46UTC today causing extensive damage to the country and also triggering Tsunami waves and warnings across the Pacific.
At this time there are no reports of amateur radio involvement in the disaster response but it would be appreciated if extra care was taken to avoid any emergency traffic. The IARU Region 3 Emergency Centre of Activity frequencies are;
3600 kHz
7110 kHz
14300 kHz
18160 kHz
21360 kHz
The situation is developing as it can take many hours for a tsunami wave to cross the Pacific ocean, more information will be provided when it is available."
It will be published when a member of the EC approves the article.

Chile Earthquake Update

Hi,
The following information has been relayed from Dr. Galdino Besomi, CE3PG, President of the Radio Club de Chile (RCCH) by Jorge Sierra, LU1AS, Emergency Communications Co-Ordinator of Area G in IARU Region 2.
The situation in Chile is very complex due to continuing aftershocks in the area. RECNA and RCCH networks are working in coordination with the Army of Chile handling information about locating missing persons, condition of roads and support for the emergency administration.
 

The frequencies that must be kept clear are:
40 meters: 7050, 7095
80 meters: 3738
20 meters: 14200

Other frequencies could be in use, especially in 40 meters. Before using
any frequency it`s very important to make sure it`s free…

This information has just been submitted to the IARU-R1 website and will
appear soon.

Terramoto no Haiti

ImageOs Radioamadores são convidados a manter 7.045MHz e 3.720MHz livres para todo o tráfego de emergência decorrentes do terramoto que atingiu o Haiti em 12 de Janeiro de 2010 no caso de qualquer Radioamador haitiano conseguir entrar em emissão e no caso de outros eventos relacionados nas áreas circunvizinhas, incluindo réplicas. 

Arnie Coro, CO2KK, IARU-R2 Área C Coordenador de chamadas de emergência relatados às 0245 UTC eles não foram capazes de comunicar com qualquer Radioamador no Haiti, mas há presença de amadores de outros países na área, que também sentiram o tremor . Eles pedem o seu apoio para manter estas frequências limpas. 

O seguinte é de um e-mail de CO2KK lançado para o CQ / WorldRadio Online redacção: 
"Poucos minutos depois do terremoto que foi sentido nas cidades do leste de Cuba, a Federação Cubana de Rádio Amadores Net Emergência foi activado, com estações de controle de estações CO8WM e CO8RP localizadas na cidade de Santiago de Cuba, e em contacto permanente com o Centro Nacional de Sismologia de Cuba, localizada naquela cidade. Estações na cidade de Baracoa, na província de Guantánamo, também foram activadas imediatamente como os movimentos de terra foram sentidos ainda mais forte lá, devido à sua proximidade com o Haiti. CO8AZ e CO8AW entrou no ar imediatamente, com a estação CM8WAL. Na fase inicial da emergência, a população da cidade de Baracoa foi evacuada para longe da costa, como houve um alerta preliminar de um evento possível tsunami ou de uma pesada sequência de ondas de impacto na linha da costa marítima da cidade, mar parede ... Baracoa não pôde contactar estações de Santiago de Cuba, em 40 metros devido ás hora 5 PM local, várias estações no oeste de Cuba e uma no Estado da Flórida, desde E.U. fizeram de relé. CO2KK, como Coordenador de Emergência IARU Região II, Área C, ajudou a organizar as redes, em 7045 kHz e também em 3720 kHz, enquanto as redes locais em Santiago de Cuba e Baracoa operavam em 2 metros. Ainda ás 9,45 hora local 0245 UTC não têm sido capazes de contactar qualquer amador ou estações de serviços de emergência no Haiti. Radioamadores da República Dominicana, Porto Rico, Venezuela, acompanham a frequência de banda de 40 metros, que notificou para a Região II de IARU executivo Ramon Santoyo XE1KK como em uso para a emergência, pedindo que 7045 kHz estar limpa quanto possível ... Ainda estamos escutando 7.045 kHz esperando que alguém no Haiti pode ter acesso a um transceptor e pelo menos uma bateria de carro para operar. Todas as informações que até agora vem do sismólogos cubano nos falam de um terremoto muito intenso, e também da possibilidade de outros eventos a seguir. Seguindo o conselho do geofísicos, estamos mantendo as frequências de 7045 e 3720 quilohertz activa até novo aviso ".
