The amazing start to 2020 continues with the 4th major quake of the year, a magnitude 6.3 strikes Chukotskiy Avtonomnyy Okrug, Russia. We are only 8 days into 2020, I can't ever remember a start like this! (Forgive me, I get a little over-excited about major quakes) The 10km deep magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck on Thursday 406 kilometres (252 miles) southwest of Anadyr, Chukotka in Russia’s Far East.
The area is a barren mountainous region and casualties and building damage is expected to be light if any.
