Good Luck Hawkeye! (10 days now since hearing from her, she usually posts every day!)

Still no news from Hawkeye after the catostrophic hurricane, Ian made landfall earlier this week in Hawkeye's vicinity: Hawkeye, if you are able to read this, know you are in our thoughts and prayers not just from me but the readers of TBW too. Take care dear lady!

Three major quakes in four hours as our planets magnetosphere is buffeted with a CME and a Coronal hole turning to face Earth

USGS
As Earth moves through the wake of a large CME (coronal mass ejection) that hit our planet's magnetic field yesterday and a massive Coronal hole on the Sun's surface turning to face Earth, it comes as no surprise to me that a four hour period last night produced the busiest burst of major quake activity this year.

A M6.4 - near the coast of southern Peru, a M7.7 - Komandorskiye Ostrova, Russia region, the second largest quake of the year and a mag 6.2 in the same area doubled the July total of major quakes in a blink of an eye.
2017 is still the lowest total in decades so far however, as the year total moves on to a miserly 53.
