The Global Incidents Map is down, and has been for a while now. So I am watching the USGS map at the moment.

Here's a current list of the EQ's surrounding the Solomons/Santa Cruz Islands for February so far.
The smallest is M4.6; most are M5's/M5+'s and a fair few over M6+. Just incredible.
Solomon/Santa Cruz Feb. EQ list (7 days)

The USGS also has the shake map listed as an "IX - RED" - this is the second highest on their charts frown
If there isn't a tsunami of sorts generated by this one, I would be quite surprised.
I am still astounded at the size and number of quakes in this region....what's next?

Upon getting up this morning, I was hoping that the EQ activity in the Solomon/SC Islands region had maybe begun to settle somewhat. But this hasn't occurred.
My heart goes to the island's peoples being poorly affected (even live's devastated) by this gobsmacking series of quakes (the tsunami etc.).
That 'sick in the stomach' feeling I mentioned yesterday, regarding witnessing this change/movement happening there, hasn't gone. This is the area I have been most drawn to, for months, as being one of potentially some very serious EQ activity.

If you have looked at the Global Incidents Map - Earthquakes your eyes might be bugging out at the number of quakes down the east coast of both islands. But it looks like there is a glitch - the depths are nearly all zero, and as far as I can tell, NZ hasn't experienced all of these quakes today.
It's good to see NZ registering on the Global Quakes Map, so that 'we' don't have to look at multiple sites for info.
NZ experiences various quakes each day, but the scenario showing up today on the Global Map is apparently not quite right crazy

Couldn't edit the above post...

Should've looked a little further before I gabbled on with the above post....this may explain the Global Maps visual a bit - Geonet list 9th/10th wink

That map has been a wee bit temperamental. It's loading atm.
Also have a look at;
CSEM-EMSC
and
IRIS

Also meant to mention that COLOMBIA had an M7.

No aftershocks at this point and it was very deep. Apparently this quake was near the location of a large volcano.......

Santa Cruz Islands will not let up - more M5's and above.

The Melbourne Uni seismo's have been picking up ground movement in Gippsland, particularly over the last 24 hours. The EQ in Indonesia just now may add a little to the current movement though.
The Uni's South Australia seismo has also been picking up movement yesterday, but for both Vic and S.A nothing has come up on GeoScience yet.
My daggy seismo is also noticing some mild movement too since yesterday.

Just realized that when this comment is posted, 'duckweather' looks like she is hogging the posting in the "General Science" list of WZ... blush (apols)

Anyway, many of the larger quakes very recently have been quite deep, which I find quite interesting.
Prior to this last group, many of them (for example, the Santa Cruz Islands' quakes) were mostly shallow. Makes me wonder if some related and 'uniform' movement has been carrying on below - meaning some firm shifting (for want of a better word) happening in the crust...effects on volcanoes?
I get a wee feeling there may be some more significant earth movements to come, including more M2+(ish) popping up in Australia.....

NSW (near Orange) has just had an M3 (an hour ago) and very shallow depth (0kms according to Geoscience).
As I said in my last post, I felt that Oz would come up with M2+'s, shortly after all of the larger quakes in the ROF in the last 24 hours.
The was some faint movement in Vic too - only picked up on seismos and there was a very small movement west/east or east/west (horizontal) too.
I've got a very mild feeling that Vic may come up with something (M) soon in the eastern part of the state - between Melbourne south/east side, along a sweeping curve (U) to the NE most point of Vic, or somewhere on a direct line from Phillip Island to the Kosciusko National Park (NSW). (But remember - I could be wrong - this is just a feeling, not a prediction) wink
