Mw 8.1 Kermadec Islands, New Zealand

updated 25 May 2021

On 4 March 2021 a major earthquake occurred at the Kermadec Islands, New Zealand. The seismic event occurred at 19:28:35 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 8.1. It was the third major seismic event that occurred near the Kermadec Trench within hours.

A major earthquake warning was issued on 28 February because of a convergence of two planetary alignments, one of which was the highly critical Mercury-Venus-Neptune alignment that statistically can cause large seismic activity, potentially reaching magnitude 8. Of the four Mw 7.9> earthquakes since 2018, three occurred within days after the planets Mercury, Venus and Neptune aligned. See also this and this report.
