A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.1 hit off the east coast of Honshu, Japan at 08:18 UTC (17:18 LT) on April 11. The agency is reporting a depth of 12.2 km (7.6 miles).
The epicenter was located approximately 144km (90 miles) NE of Miyako and 153km (95 miles) E of Hachinohe, Japan.
There are no people living within 100 km (62 miles) of the quake.
And no tsunami warnings have been issued.
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.
