A powerful earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.2 struck near the town of Sinabang, Indonesia at 06:50 UTC on Jan 7. The agency is reporting a depth of 20.3 km (12.6 miles).
The epicenter was located 16 km (9.9 miles) SSW of Sinabang (population 15,000), Indonesia.
In total, some 125,000 people are estimated to have felt the shaking.
Rahmat Triyono, who heads the earthquake and tsunami center at Indonesia’s Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, said there was no risk of a tsunami from the quake and there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, as reported by nytimes.com.
The national disaster agency said it was still gathering information on any damage that may have been caused by the earthquake.
The town of Sinabang is located just 250km-or-so (155 miles) W of Mount Sinabung — a powerful stratovolcano more than capable of producing a violent VEI 6+ eruption.
Stay tuned for any updates.
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.
