26 July. South of Titicaca 6.1, Eastern Papua New Guinea 6.4
Six days without Pacific Mag 6 quakes ended suddenly today.
Two location successes to bemuse the sceptics.
Conditions last few days have been bumpy and just under Mag 6 making for difficult forecasting.
The eruptions at Kliuchevskoi and Bristol Island continue. No data for other volcanoes yet but big volcanic action seems unlikely.
The decision not to offer a forecast for New Zealand was a mistake.
A brief moderate quake period is possible from late 27 July.
Detailed local and Pacific forecasts will be posted on 27 July.
