Six earthquakes shook the northern and southern polar regions today. One of the quakes was a 4.8 magnitude quake at Kiska Volcano, Alaska, and a 5.5 magnitude quake,  the largest of the quakes, occurred at the Southern Mid-Atlantic Ridge near Antarctica.

When The Poles Become Unstable

As the Earth continues to readjust the position of the North and South Poles, an increase in earthquakes and volcanoes will result. We witnessed a pole shift on April 20, 2013, and again today, May 10, 2013.

Vanuatu is a location to monitor for earthquakes, and today a 4.6 magnitude quake rattled this South Pacific island region.
