A massive 7.2 earthquake rocks El Salvador as Hurricane Otto makes landfall!

It has been mentioned on The Big Wobble before, extreme weather can influence major quakes and it may have happened tonight.
A massive mag 7.2 earthquake has just struck El Salvador as hurricane Otto bears down on Central America, an extremely late hurricane to strike furthest south ever in the Caribbean! 
A storm of Otto's expected strength has never made landfall so far south in the Caribbean, and there is no record of any hurricane striking Costa Rica,the Washington Post quoted.
With a major coronal hole facing the Earth, also thought to influence major quakes all bets are off.
A tsunami warning for this quake is possible…

This evening’s major quake was the 10th of this November and the 122nd of 2016.

A massive coronal hole on the Sun returned to face Earth raising concerns of further major quakes to hit in the coming days.

At the end of October, a hole in the sun's atmosphere lashed Earth's magnetic field with solar wind, sparking strong geomagnetic storms and almost a full week of Arctic auroras. It's back. The same "coronal hole" is turning toward Earth again, it has shrunk a little but it still covers a third of our Sun. 

The West coast of the US is looking more and more vulnerable as its the only area of the "ring of fire" not to witness a major quake this year and the law of averages would suggest "the big one" has to come sooner or later.
