Yet another major quake.....a mag 6.5 - 46km WSW of Illapel, Chile is the second major quake to strike in the same place today.
Earlier a mag 6.3 struck in the same area.
It is the 14th major quake or aftershock to strike the area in the last four days
After a very quiet time recently for seismic activity, August was the quietest month for major quakes since March 2014 with only three..... suddenly September could be the busiest month for major quakes in years, well it is a special month with the final blood moon arriving later in the month! Today's quake is the 19th major quake this month and the 107th of this year....
This month needs another 8 major quakes, with 10 days to go to beat the April 2014 total of 26, also a blood moon month which is the highest total in the last three years, see graph below....
