After a magnitude 6.9 earthquake set off tsunami detection systems, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) warned California and the rest of the west coast of the United States to be on the watch.
Twenty-three earthquakes hit the Loyalty Islands in the Pacific between July 1 and 2. Today, a quake with a magnitude of 6.9 was the biggest one.
Since all of the earthquakes listed below happened in places that are used to them, there is no reason to worry. Most of the time, tsunamis from this area don’t reach the US. Because this earthquake was so deep, NOAA sent a PAGER warning message to the US West Coast about it.
Even though it is scary that the earthquake could cause a tsunami that could reach the US, officials have not yet started evacuations or anything else that would show that a tsunami is coming.
The USGS, which is one of the few methods that can be trusted and is known around the world, has recorded the reported earthquakes. Coordinated Universal Time is what UTC is short for.
