New Zealand is quite active. Not to mention that it's more than 3,000 miles away from the stranding.

Records dating from the 1840s show that, on average, New Zealand can expect several magnitude 6 earthquakes every year, one magnitude 7 every 10 years, and an 8 every century. But large earthquakes are not evenly spaced, and they sometimes arrive in bunches.

Thanks for the info.
I wasn't sure - I should have checked first.

I watch the quakes everyday - and take note of so many in my area
and Sandwich islands, Aaska and Indonesia -
I didn't realize New Zealand was so active.

I did know it was a good distance away from the Aussie coast -
but thought the 4.6 was still rather large for that particular on-land area.

Thanks again for clearing it up.

Whales rescued from yesterday’s mass stranding at Hamelin Bay are heading out to sea, raising hopes of hundreds of volunteers in the South-West who have been working against the clock to save the mammals. Six of the 11 surviving pilot whales has formed a pod and is heading into deeper water. Two others are in open waters, but there are still fears for three pilot whales, including a calf nicknamed Buddy, which haven’t joined the main pod and are still struggling.

From the other thread:

Last update.

Firstly, no earthquakes here. Not even a little rumble.

Wildlife officers have put down three whales that again beached themselves after being herded out to sea yesterday on Western Australia's south coast. Six whales washed up at Ledge Point, east of Augusta this morning. Three of them died and the other three have been put down.

That means 4 out of the 80 survived...very sad.

That is sad, thank you for keeping us so well informed about what has been happening with the whales.

I still say, lets give it a few more days......
