UPDATE: - A swarm of quakes in the 4.5. - 6.2 region ongoing off the nw coast* - another 6.0m today 23/5 at subduction depth (where one tectonic plate slides under another). Hope this rock 'n roll show is not a precursor to something much more serious.
*site of the earthquake activity - on the map - to the east - roughly between the 3 green oblongs and the 3 grey ones just below them - 50km - 200km offshore.
