Series of moderate earthquakes rattle the globe: 6.7 hits Vanuatu

March 9, 2012VANUATUA series of moderate to strong earthquakes has rattled several parts of the globe including Iran, China, the Philippines and parts of the South Pacific in the past 12-24 hours. There have been no reports of serious damage or fatalities from these quakes thus far and no tsunami warnings were issued for areas that could be impacted. A similar earthquake earlier this week did injure 10 people in the Philippines. The strongest of the recent quakes was centered near Vanuatu, where the quake was recorded at a magnitude of 6.7 by the USGS. These recent quakes come less than two days from the anniversary of the 9.0 magnitude earthquake that struck off the coast of Japan, causing a massive tsunami that devastated parts of the northeast coast of Japan and crippled the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. More than 15,000 people were confirmed dead while more than 3,000 remain missing following the disaster. –Accuweather

One Response to Series of moderate earthquakes rattle the globe: 6.7 hits Vanuatu

  1. There was a mild tremor 4,5 mag in Ecuador, epicenter Manabi province on the Pacific Coast yesterday, but no damages nor casualties yet…My concern is the coincidental situation that iactually is Full Moon in the sky, in the middle of heavy rains flooding main inland areas of the Ecuadorian coastal region, lots of damages in crops, roads and bridges, but local authorities do not say anything if El Niño is coming again or not. What is upsetting the Climate pattern in the western part of the Pacific Rim? Tungurahua volcano is active again. There are many upheavals at the same time.What really is going on with Mother Earth?
