Due to sickness and the coronavirus, I have taken my eye off other important events around the world. During the last two weeks, the Pacific Ring Of Fire has been shaking.
Yesterday, a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck the Philippines: The powerful quake struck 196 kilometres southeast of Budta, Philippines, according to the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre.
However, the biggest quake of the month a massive magnitude of 7.5 rattled the Severo-Kuril’sk, area of Russia on Wednesday. A tsunami warning was also issued following the shallow quake.
Altogether, 7 major quakes have rattled the Pacific Ring Of Fire in the last 9 days bringing the 2020 total of major quakes to 28, which is just 1 more than the same period last year. 2018 had recorded 1 more, 29, so, ‘even-Stephens’ so far.
