A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.1 hit off the coast of Hokkaido, Japan at 23:46 UTC on Aug 28. The agency is reporting a depth of 17.2 km (10.7 miles).
The epicenter was located 141 km (87 miles) ENE of Hachinohe (population 240,000).
“This earthquake poses no tsunami risk,” said the JMA.
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.
