Happy New Year, Vanuatu – 6.6 Quake Shakes Ancient Crust

The new year started with a 6.6 quake at Vanuatu – USGS

The first day of 2014 started off with a bang – a 6.6 magnitude quake rocked the island of Vanuatu, and luckily, a Pacific tsunami warning was not issued.

The Pacific Rim and Ring of Fire have been very active this holiday season, and Hawaii has been under flood alerts for the past several days from quakes occurring all along the Ring of Fire. This New Year’s quake may not have generated a tsunami, but you can guarantee that it will increase flooding along the coastlines from Northern Australia and New Zealand to New Guinea and Hawaii.

Vanuatu Is The Ancient Starting Point

I have always believed that Vanuatu is part of the oldest and most ancient section of the Pacific Ocean, and is one of the deepest places on the Earth where the planetary shifts begin.

If you study the patterns of polar shifting and the inceases in global earthquakes, you can see that the BIG crustal shifts begin at Vanuatu.

Pay attention to the reverb from this 6.6 quake. I suspect larger quakes will follow around the world in the days and weeks to come.

Happy New Year everyone – remember to keep your feet firmly on the ground, but don’t be alarmed if the ground shakes a little…
