A strong and shallow earthquake registered as M5.9 by the USGS hit the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge at 16:07 UTC on Nov 22. The agency is reporting a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
According to the USGS, the epicentre was located approximately 2,150 km N of Siple, Mount, Antarctica, 3,900 km WSW of Puerto Natales, Chile and 3,250 km S of Adamstown, Pitcairn.
No tsunami warnings have been issued.
There is a very low likelihood of casualties and/or damage given the remote location of the quake.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The global uptick in earthquakes and volcanoes we’ve witnessed lately is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
