    Dropped from 8 to 7.8 - still big

    Magnitude Mw 7.8
    Region SOLOMON ISLANDS
    Date time 2016-12-08 17:38:46.9 UTC
    Location 10.71 S ; 161.36 E
    Depth 40 km
    Distances 209 km SE of Honiara, Solomon Islands / pop: 56,300 / local time: 04:38:46.9 2016-12-09
    68 km SW of Kirakira, Solomon Islands / pop: 1,200 / local time: 04:38:46.9 2016-12-09

    One could expect aftershocks

    There is SOLAR STORM activity predicted to hit soon too - that being the case, more quakes and volcanic activity could be expected..

    Dutch claims to be able to predict earthquakes, as to the place and magnitude. He seems to be accurate. In this video he will show where the next ones will hit, based on these last large ones. Keep in mind he predicts all quakes,big and small and most are small.
    Blessed are the cracked, for they are the ones who let in the light!
