The period may be extended for several days.
Possibility Mag 7 Pacific. Western Solomon Islands are higher risk. Confidence=low.

Mag 6 Pacific quakes have been sparse since the 22 January Bougainville 7.9 marked the end of a six month Mag 7 Pacific quake period...two in New Zealand.
The big Valparaiso 6.9 was a good location success and justified the Pacific Mag 7 risk.
Japanese volcano Sakurajima is erupting.
Manam, Sinabung, Shiveluch, Poas, Langila all throwing ash or minor eruption.
The Southern Philippines 6.8 on 29 April was a good fit to the 24-25 April forecast map.
This Service was too slow offering a Pacific (and New Zealand) forecast for 29-30 April or the Philippines 6.8 was likely to be captured.
