    Alvin, this MAJOR quake has now been revised by the USGS to a magnitude of 6.5 at a depth of 16.3 Kilometres and took place 30 Kilometres North of the city of Rabaul. There is a volcano there and i’m wondering Alvin if this quake might set that volcano off. Please let me know your thoughts on this matter. Thanking you!
