Tectonic plates stressed across the planet

Earth has been reeling under an accelerated solar wind stream that has been blasting the planet and sheering the magnetosphere for 6 consecutive days.

Seismic vibrations have been rippling across the Antarctica seismic stations non-stop for the past few days.

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake jolted northern Chile on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but there were no reports of any damage and the linchpin copper mining sector was not affected- though this quake in Chile will do little to alleviate the stresses.


Recent quakes today along tectonic plate boundaries in Kamchatka, Chile, the Bonin Islands in Japan, Guatemala (Cocos plate), the South Island of New Zealand, the Loyalty Islands in the South Pacific and Myanmar are all indications we are nearing a tipping point for another sizeable jolt.

Tectonic plate stresses are building across the globe.
