That looks nuts!!!
I know there was a magnitude 7.5 quake hit today near New Caledonia at a shallow depth.
wouldn't think that would cause all that.
The US Geological Survey said the new earthquake measured 6.6, downgrading it from an initial measurement of 7.0.
Earlier on Wednesday, a shallow and powerful magnitude 7.5 earthquake struck off the east coast of New Caledonia, with the epicentre reported some 300 kilometres east of Noumea.
The undersea quake was only 10km deep and about 155km east-southeast of the Loyalty Islands off New Caledonia's east coast. Earthquakes are generally more destructive when the epicentre is near the surface.

Good catch. Perhaps they took the system off line once they saw what we are seeing.
