A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.5 hit Rat Island, Aleutian Islands, Alaska at 21:35 UTC on April 2. The agency is reporting a depth of 19.1 km (11.8 miles).
The quake was followed by six aftershocks over the following hours, the largest of which being an M5.2.
The epicenter was located just 31km (19 miles) ENE of the Kiska stratovolcano — a relatively new volcano with a confirmed VEI 3 in 1962, and then confirmed VEI 2s in 1968 and 1990.
There are no people living within 100 km (62 miles) of the earthquake.
And no tsunami warnings were issued.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
