Nice cluster of quakes at New Britain over the last few days. Started with a couple of 4.9 but then 2 days later moved up to a 6.6 followed by a series of aftershocks. I’ve been watching New Britain for a while, I think there will be something happen here and bigger than the 6.6 we have seen. (I want an 8.)
No that’s not a prediction, predictions need to have when where, and how big.
In other news, more quakes in Eritrea and still volcanic action, so keep watching that as well. Lots of sat pictures but no ground pictures yet.
