    Both USGS and EMSC now says that the 1st quake was a 6.5 and the 2nd quake was a 7.2, less than an hour later.

    A 6.9-magnitude earthquake shook the Pacific Ocean near the Solomon Islands Tuesday night, one day after a string of earthquakes rattled the same area and another quake hit the Philippines

    Apparently the 7.2 quake generated a local 10ft tsunami that left 1000 people homeless but, luckily, everyone had headed for the hills before it struck.

    There are some interesting things going on in the Intermountain West and California. In particular, take a look at this map:

    earthquake.usgs.gov...

    and this one:

    www.seis.utah.edu...

    Nothing huge, but just a lot of activity.
