Again a strong earthquake swarm around the world! Today morning, two very shallow and strong M6.3 and M6.4 earthquakes hit at a depth of 10km off New Caledonia in an interval of approximately 40 minutes. Amazing! These first two quakes were followed by a series of 17 tremors ranging between M5.8 and M4.6. That’s a lot of pressure release again!

There were no reports or danger of tsunami, but could have been very dangerous due to their shallow epicenters.

Be ready and get prepared for the next big event! It could happen just around your door?
