A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.2 (upgraded from M6.1) rocked east of the Kuril Islands, Russia at 22:06 UTC on March 28. The agency is reporting a depth of 9 km (5.6 miles).
The epicenter was located approximately 266 km (166 miles) ESE of Ozernovskiy.
There are no people living within 100 km (6.2 miles), and therefore a low likelihood of casualties and damage.
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 increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
