    Harry when i first opened up the thread, the only content was 'Very strong 7.1M earthquake in Vanuatu' and a quick google search showed that a 7.1 earthquake had occured last month off Vanuatu, February the 2 or 3 i think. The information now contained in your op wasn't there when i first read the post, so my reading is just fine thank you.

    Downgraded to a 6.7 now.

    Magnitude 6.7 - VANUATU

    There have been three significant earthquakes in the region during the past month and larger quakes are quite common in the area.

    It's always been a seismically active hotbed, being an extension of the rather young [tectonically speaking] arm of the larger "Ring of Fire", reaching from Indo/PNG running along all of the broader Melanesia region towards the also highly volatile New Zealand.
