A strong earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.2 hit the Kermadec Islands region, New Zealand at 08:37 UTC on June 21. The agency is reporting a depth of 35 km (21.7 miles).
The epicenter was located 156 km (97 miles) ENE of L’Esperance Rock, New Zealand.
There are no people living within 100 km (62 miles).
And no tsunami warning has been issued.
The region has been rocking for a while now, with a total 109 M4.5+ quakes in the last week alone, according to the USGS — the largest being the violent M7.2 that struck on Saturday, June 15.
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.
