A mag 6.0 - Solomon Islands the third major quake to strike in 24 hours as massive coronal hole on the Sun now facing Earth directly


A mag 6.0 - 83km WNW of Kirakira, Solomon Islands is the third major quake to strike in 24 hours after the massive 7.9 and 6.3 in Papua New Guinea yesterday. Incredibly it’s the sixth major quake to hit this area in the last 7 days with Papua New Guinea suffering a wave of aftershocks after yesterday’s massive strike.

We could be in for more as the enormous coronal hole on the Sun is now facing Earth directly. This morning’s strike is the 11th major quake of December and the 139th of 2016.
