THIRD major #earthquake in the Kermadec Trench near New Zealand: M8.1

Fortunately these are offshore, and so far no tsunamis detected … the third one was about 2:28pm US East Coast Time, Magnitude 8.1 – normally there is only one 8 or higher in a year (as previously noted, 15 of M7 or higher), so this is starting to be unusual.
