Two major quakes strike the South Pacific last night within 250km's of each other and only 20 minutes apart

No tsunami warnings have been issued for these two quakes.
An incredible double strike hit a 250km area of the South Pacific last night.
A magnitude 6.9 - 99km NNE of Ndoi Island, Fiji and a magnitude 6.4 - 125km WNW of Neiafu, Tonga struck along the Tonga Trench last night just twenty minutes apart.
Luckily there is a low likelihood of casualties and damage.

Last night’s double strike was the 11th and 12th major quake of September and brings the total for the year to 104
September has recorded 8 major quakes in the last 8 day's.
We can expect more major quakes in the coming week as a large coronal hole on the sun turns to face the earth, coronal holes are thought by many experts to influence seismic activity here on earth, see below.
