Most people know that a Volcano is forming underwater near the Tongan Islands, that's about 2,900 miles south of Hawaii.

I have the nifty little Addon on my Firefox called "eQuake" that makes my screen shake every time there is a EQ in the world. In the last hour the screen has trembled 5 times, all near the active Volcano.

I thought it prevalent to make a thread about the area, as I know almost nothing about the surrounding area and hope some people here on ATS do know.

Plus: Volcano's are just awesome.

Star & Flag 4 U!

Very interesting stuff indeed!!!

Lots of implications for further Eq activity...

Someone had postulated that a recent ~M7.8 Eq from that area might of been a "Failed Dome" Scenerio???
