    Thank you for sharing this information! I have never heard of earthquakes in Anartica before just lately. God Bless you and be careful as the earthquakes are coming fast and furiously now from all over the globe.

    No kidding Dianna! Another 4.5 off Honshu & a 6.0 in the Kuril Islands in the last hour & that on top of earlier quakes in Honshu, Sumatra/Indonisa/Indian Ocean & all around the Ring of Fire :-|

    You don’t hear about them because there’s not much human impact. The Antarctic Peninsula is on a plate boundary, plenty of volcanos and earthquakes.
