Summary.
2 August.
Santiago/Chile 5.5
Vallenar/Chile 5.3
Romania 4.6
Eruption Suwanosejima, Sinabung, Kliuchevskoi.
3 August.
South of Kermadecs 5.3
Vallenar/Chile 5.3
Tonga 5.3
Eruption Suwanosejima, Shiveluch.
Solar quake driving condtions arrived on time but were very weak.
Quakes were consequently below Mag 6 but the biggest quakes fitted very well to risk locations.
Volcanoes were very active.
Volcanoes often erupt near the end or after quake periods so the big activity could be related to the earlier very long 21-29 July period.
The 2 August Sinabung eruption is described as the biggest in three years. Multiple big pyroclastic eruptions. News is scant as always in Indonesia but most of the nearby locals moved out a long time ago under the constant onslaught of ash from the ever increasing eruptions at Sinabung.
No news for Piton de la Fournaise.
A new period is here on 4 August.
