A powerful earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.2 hit off the coast of New Caledonia at 14:56 UTC on May 19. The agency is reporting a depth of 20km (12.4 miles). This is the second M6+ earthquake to rock the region today.
The epicenter was located some 163km (101 miles) E of Tadine, New Caledonia and 226km (140 miles) S of Isangel, Vanuatu.
No damage or casualties are anticipated due to the earthquake’s remote location, and no tsunami warnings have been issued.
Four strong quakes have hit the region in the last 14 hours, ranging from M4.9 to M6.3.
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.
