A rare, strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.6 hit near Broome, Australia at 05:39 UTC on July 14. The agency is reporting a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
The epicenter was located under the Indian Ocean, some 202 km (126 miles) W of Broome, Australia (population 14,000).
The USGS has issued a green alert for fatalities and economic losses.
And, fortunately, there is no tsunami threat associated with the quake.
Large earthquakes do occur in Australia, but very infrequently.
Today’s M6.6 is one of the largest in the nation’s recorded history.
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.
