January 24, 2012 – FIJI – A very deep 6.3 magnitude earthquake erupted along the seafloor off the island of Fiji. The earthquake had a depth of 582.8 km (362.2 miles). The epicenter of the earthquake was 759 km (472 miles) from SUVA, Fiji and about 1374 km from Auckland, New Zealand. The Fiji earthquake was the fourth consecutive earthquake to strike the planet in four days. Earlier today, a 6.2 struck off the coast of Chile, preceded by a 6.0 in the South Sandwich Islands the day prior, and a 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Chiapas, Mexico prior to that. The string of quakes comes both before and during a phase where solar activity and CME’s are colliding with the planet’s magnetosphere.
