Mw 6.7 Mauritius - Reunion Region

updated 26 May 2021 UTC

On 12 May 2021 a strong earthquake occurred at Mauritius - Reunion Region. The seismic event occurred at 14:05:16 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 6.7.

In the first week several alignments occurred, which increased the probability of larger seismic activity. 7-10 May was isolated as the most probable time-window for seismic activity well over 6 magnitude. However, the anticipated seismic increase did not occur until the 12th. Possibly the multiple 90° angles involving Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars on the 11th and 12th contributed to the earthquake. This geometry will be researched further. See also the report above.
