No, no it isnt.
This would be the first of anything above 5's all year.
Certainly nothing to speak of in the last week or so.

Looks like the earth quake took place in the Santa Cruz Islands north of Australia. My first thought upon seeing the thread was Santa Cruz Ca. Does anyone know what the population is like there?

That's what I thought as well while reading the title of this post. The population in Santa Cruz, CA isn't huge, with only 59,946 residents per the 2010 US Census. However, Santa Cruz, CA is large enough within the state of California (where I reside in So. Cal.) to have heard about such a huge earthquake, which I did not hear about down here in Los Angeles County. As a matter of fact, any EQ with such a magnitude would have been reported statewide...but, fortunately for us westcoasters this time, it did not pertain to us!

Santa Cruz, CA

Nonetheless, interesting post

IRIS is a very good place to monitor earthquakes worldwide.

This is interesting pattern. Yesterday there was series of quakes Java - New Guinea area, now quakes are moving along plate boundary towards Santa Cruz - Vanuatu - Tonga - Kermadec Islands. If same pattern keeps moving, next ones will hit New Zealand. Be aware people who live in North Island.
