the kermadecs have had lots of big quakes this year. as longs they keep coming, i doubt there will be anything huge.
the 7.8 quake a month ago down in New Zealands south island was the first big quake to hit that region in a long time.
the more quakes, the more pressure is released and the less chance of a huge one.
