I hope you don´t mind, CelticHeart, if I include the following picture of the quake you mentioned: the 7.3 earthquake. East of the South Sandwich Islands

I just thought other ATS members should see it:

Don´t you think that was a strong one for the area?

No problem. It was really interesting to me too. When I first saw it I thought there was a glitch until I clicked on it. That earthquake got me thinking though. Wonder if we will start having earthquakes where we normally don't have any?

Some more strong temors.

5.4 FOX ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, ALASKA this one was shallow 1km

posted on Jan, 3 2006 @ 02:07 PM
Fiji is situated on the large Pacific Plate, where 3 plates come together.
Activity is increasing...

Furthermore, the 7.3 quake mentioned before, which has been reviewed and changed to a 7.4 earthquake worries me. It is situated on a strong Plate and could have caused a Tsunami. (According to the news, no Tsunami was created).

The Sumatra quake was 30 Km. depth
USGS Sumatra quake the one we are talking about was 10 km. depth... But strong earthquakes are taking place too often and I wonder if this is really something to expect or unusual.

We have several volcanoes there, more or less, active.
see full list of volcanoes

Since 2006 started we have seen several earthquakes, some important...
Comments are welcome.

There really isn't much to say especially when we have no idea what is about to happen. I have a friend in Auckland, New Zealand and he told me yesterday that they've had some increased activity lately.
