Two 7.0 quakes in the Solomon Islands. USGS had reported 7.3 but has downgraded it to 7.0 Tsunami warnings have been called off.

The first quake hit just off the south-west coast at 1pm local time, the US Geological Survey said, triggering a tsunami warning. The second quake, with a magnitude of 6.0, was recorded nearby 30 minutes later. The Solomon Islands Meteorological Service later said there was no tsunami threat, but warned about unusual sea currents on the coast.

While on the other side of the Pacific Pond.

Southern California feels effect of 6.2-magnitude earthquake that struck off Mexican coast.


Nothing up here in Northern California. We have a fire on one of the islands, but no shaking.

It's Hawaii's turn again.

World's biggest active volcano Mauna Loa erupts.

Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano, has erupted for the first time in 38 years.

Dramatic US Geological Survey footage captured lava flows spewing at the northwest rim of the Hawaiian volcano.

It comes more than 38 years after the shield volcano last erupted.

The volcano alert level has since been upgraded from “advisory” to a “warning”, The US Sun reported.

Officials have said that the eruption isn’t likely to threaten communities at this stage.

But, they warned: “Based on past events, the early stages of a Mauna Loa eruption can be very dynamic and the location and advance of lava flows can change rapidly...

It's a double bunger now.

Why people in Hawaii are abuzz over 2 simultaneous volcanic eruptions.

The goddess of fire is alive and well on Hawaii's Big Island, where two of the most famous volcanoes in the world are erupting at the same time.

An auspicious and spiritual tone has struck the island as the glow of the lava oozing from Mauna Loa, the largest volcano in the world, and Kilauea, one of the most active volcanos in the world, ignites the landscape of Hawaii's Big Island, a sign that Pele, the Polynesian goddess of fire, is blessing the land, experts told ABC News....

Hawaii built on a bed of marbles.


These slides rank among the world's largest landslides. This should really not come as a surprise since the islands really are built on a foundation of "watermelons and marbles" (pillow lava and sand) that rises 15,000-20,000 feet above the surrounding seafloor.

Scientists lower alert for Mauna Loa, say eruption could end, but that's based on past eruptive behavior and we all know that Mother Nature can throw curve balls.

Cheers.

6.2 magnitude earthquake recorded in eastern Taiwan.

An earthquake measuring 6.2 magnitude on the Richter scale, with epicenter offshore, has shaken eastern Taiwan and awakened citizens after several aftershocks were felt, the island's Central Weather Bureau (CWB) has reported.

The epicenter of the tremor, which occurred at 3.17 a.m. (local time), was located 29.1 kilometers southeast of the city of Hualien, with a shallow focal depth of 5.7 kilometers.

So far, the Taiwanese authorities have not reported any injuries or material damage, and have also ruled out the risk of tsunami, as reported by 'Taiwan News'.

California had another shake.

5.4 magnitude earthquake strikes Northern California and 'felt more violent' than the previous quake, official says.

An earthquake struck Northern California Sunday morning for the second time in less than a two-week span, according to the US Geological Survey.

The 5.4 magnitude earthquake occurred about 30 miles south of Eureka and was centered about 9 miles southeast of Rio Dell, the USGS said. The earthquake was a shallow one, occurring at a depth of about 17.3 miles, according to preliminary information from the agency.

Rio Dell Mayor Debra Garnes said the quake shook her house.

“It was crazy. The earthquake felt more violent this time,” Garnes told CNN. “It was shorter, but more violent. My refrigerator moved two feet. Things came out of the refrigerator. There’s a crack in my wall from the violence of it.”...

30min ago a magnitude 7.7 occurred in the Banda Sea, Indonesia.
Felt it here in Darwin around 620km away. Lasted for at least a couple of minutes, and it was pretty damn strong for 10-15 seconds.
Hate to think of the damage that's going to result for those much closer to the epicenter.

I found the 7.1 Ridgecrest quake to be quite enough and my 2006 foundation system was tested in 2019, I can't say how much more it is rated for, but 7.1 is quite a bit, but it's not a 7.7 at least and I thought it was not going to end quickly... If it hadn't places near me might have been shaken to the ground, my place is bolted to concrete and into the soil and to my home, I suffered no damage. Previous quakes here in the Barstow CA area since 2006 were around 5.0 or below.
