The first M6.1 quake hit southeast of the Loyalty Islands on February 17, 2021 at 22:50 (UTC). This is probably another strong aftershock of the powerful earthquake series that rattled the same islands a week ago.

About seven hours later, on February 18, 2021 at 06:38 (UTC) the second shallow M6.1 jolt struck 135 km SSW of Port-Vila, Vanuatu.

The 3 earthquakes have the same magnitude: M6.1. They also form an almost perfect triangle (see map above). So, the number 3, a triangle, same magnitude. Are these signs or just coincidence?

  1. Well, did a check, and no tsunami warning. At least people won’t be swept up, and washed out to sea, or impaled on a tree branch?
