M 7.4 South of Kermadec Islands

last updated 30 June 2020

On 18 June 2020 a major earthquake occurred South of the Kermadec Islands. The tremor had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 7.4 and occurred at 12:49 UTC.

On 25 May a warning was issued that there would be exceptionally high lunar peaks in the first three weeks of June. Unfortunately, a series of high peaks like these makes it impossible to isolate the usual three days time-windows. Lunar geometry involving Mars and Neptune dominated the third week of June.

Update 28 May 2021: Two WPG peaks occurred on the 13th and 14th, followed by a lunar peak on the 16th and 17th.
