The major quakes keep on coming, this evening’s quake is the 7th major quake in just 6 days. Coronal activity and geomagnetic storms which have coincided with a burst of seismic and volcanic activity this week concluding in G1-class storms impacting the earth’s magnetosphere, these storms are now subsiding. The coronal activity on the Sun and the geomagnetic storms have coincided with a flurry of major quakes and volcanic activity to impact our planet in the last few days
