A powerful and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.4 (downgraded from M6.8) hit just North of New Zealand at 07:01 UTC on June 19. The agency is reporting a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
The epicenter was located approximately 140 km (87 miles) NE of L’Esperance Rock, New Zealand.
No damage or casualties are expected given the remote location of the quake.
And no tsunami warnings have been issued.
The region has been rocking for days now, with a total 114 M4.5+ earthquakes registered in just the last week, 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.
