Dang, you know, we're having so many big quakes now, anything less than 8 sounds small, but it's NOT!  What do you think is going on CGK, I know you are all over this stuff.

Or maybe it was a 7?

A magnitude 7 undersea earthquake has hit near the Solomon Islands, just a day after a 7.8 earthquake destroyed homes and triggered a tsunami warning on the island nation. 

The Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre has assessed that there is no tsunami threat to Australia.

No tsunami warning has been issued for New Zealand.

Tectonic plates are moving and Mother earth is pissed at the earthlings.  Time to repent for our sins. (LOL)

Potential?

Make up your minds, geography "experts"! Shouldn't you know by now when an earthquake will actually trigger a tsunami?

It takes a day or so for the solar winds from coronal holes to subside. They'll diminish later today.

Yep..

I have a theory that passing "rocks" play into the earthquake equation too. We have quite a few on our radar today.

Aftershock just struck Solomon Is. (M6.9) - this is expected for a week or so. Remember, alert zones apply to main shocks.
