ISLAND COUNTY SEISMIC RECORDERS

 

Yes!, we are wired for sound. Well actually, ground vibrations and movement.  The following web links will take you to several sites that will allow you to see the recorded movement from the two seismic stations on Whidbey Island.

Webicorders

To reach the recordings from the two seismic sites on Whidbey Island go to:  

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network

then scroll down the page to these two listings:

SWID SNZ UW : Primary School, South Whidbey

SVOH EHZ UW : Oak Harbor Campus, Skagit Valley College

The first entry after the name is the date and time of the latest recording, "click" on that to see the chart.

The closest seismic site to Camano Island is the Oak Harbor site.  To the east, the closest site is in Arlington at:  ATES SNZ UW : Trafton Elementary, Arlington

Not all wiggles on the chart are earthquakes. Consult the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION- FAQ link to see what other actions may generate quake-like recordings.
