)WATCH the Earth move LIVE

A very large magnitude (aftershock?) earthquake of M6.7 began shaking PNG, again.  The event was 120 polar degrees, including crossing the Pacific Ocean, from Station E1TX.  It occurred on 06March2018 at 14:13hrs UTC.  Due to the large epicentral distance between the station and PNG, Station E1TX DID detect and record the PS, PPS and the Rayleigh/Love (surface) waves appear on the seismogram below.
