A 6.2 magnitude earthquake in the Balleny Island region north of Antarctica was followed 10 minutes later by a 5.2 magnitude quakeMinutes after that, a 5.5 magnitude earthquake struck on the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge.

This might not appear to be any big deal, except to the penguins, but when one pole shifts, the other pole follows. So, heads up, Northern Polar Regions – that’s Russia, Alaska, Canada, and Greenland/Iceland. Possibly Japan and the Philippines.
