Very Deep M6.0 Earthquake Strikes 6km SE of Sapad, Philippines

A strong and deep earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.0 hit Mindanao, Philippines at 07:55 UTC, Nov 4. The agency is reporting a depth of 598km (372 miles).

The epicentre was located 6km (3.7 miles) SE of Sapad (population 21,309), Philippines.

There are approximately 5,590,000 people living within 100 km (62 miles).

The USGS issued a green alert for shaking-related fatalities and economic losses.

The quake will have a low humanitarian impact based the magnitude and depth.



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.
