A magnitude A mag 6.1 - 46km E of Kaputa, Zambia is the 4th major quake of February and the 11th of 2017
As a massive coronal hole faces Earth, we mentioned yesterday we could be in for major quake activity.
Meanwhile as the massive coronal hole turns away from Earth, yet another is turning to face Earth meaning we could still expect more major quakes and volcanic activity in the coming days.
Earth is inside a stream of solar wind bombarding the magnetosphere at a speed of 643.4 km/sec flowing from the indicated coronal hole. Credit: NASA/SDO.
