Bullhead City, AZ / MMI III (Weak shaking): I was standing in my living room and heard the window blinds and ceiling fans shaking and then felt slight movement of the floor. It was very similar to heavy truck passing in front of the house. I felt a shorter one about 30-45 minutes afterwards.
University Heights Subdivision, Flagstaff, AZ (13.5 km W from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Two of us were in the living room chatting when we heard what sounded like a loud explosion off in the distance. It lasted about three seconds building in intensity to where the windows rattled during the latest second or so.
Flagstaff, AZ (15.8 km NW from epicenter) / MMI V (Moderate shaking): Shaking occurred for just a few seconds. Nothing broken, but all the pictures on the walls rattled.
Flagstaff az 86004 / MMI V (Moderate shaking): It was an intense fast build up and a popping explosion as if an air bubble burst then it was over . the difference in this is that it felt localized as if it were right under us.
Flagstaff AZ 86001 (180.2 km SE from epicenter) / MMI III (Weak shaking): We were inside on the couches and it felt like there was something extremely heavy being dropped nearby, or like a gas line exploded (I thought this because I had smelled natural gas faintly in the neighborhood a couple days before)
Flagstaff, az / MMI V (Moderate shaking)
(182.3 km SE from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I was upstairs and thought the roommate gained synergy slamming a door while the heater kicked on, but he wasn't home. No cars has hit the building either.
Volcanic crisis at Sakurajima - updates: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
Ijen volcano photos: Ijen volcano in East Java is famous for its turquoise acid crater lake and the large sulfur deposits that are being mined by local workers. At night, the scene is illuminated by ghostly blue flames, as sulfur ignites.
