A powerful earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.0 struck off the coast of Utupua Island, Santa Cruz Islands, Solomon Islands at 13:03 UTC on August 20, 2019. The agency is reporting a depth of 45 km (28 miles).
The epicenter was located 87 km (54 miles) SE of Lata (population 553), Solomon Islands.
There are some 25,000 people living within 100 km (62 miles).
No tsunami warnings, watches or advisories are in effect.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
