An earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.1 struck off the coast of Solomon Islands at 07:25 UTC on May 03. The agency is reporting a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
The epicenter was located 145 km (91 miles) NNE of Buala, Solomon Islands.
Some 75,000 people are estimated to have felt shaking.
Given the quakes remote location there is 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.
