)WATCH the Earth move LIVE

A very large magnitude (aftershock?) earthquake of M6.8 began shaking PNG, again.  The event was 110 polar degrees, including crossing the Pacific Ocean, from Station E1TX.  It occurred on 08March2018 at 17:39hrs UTC.  Due to the large epicentral distance between the station and PNG, Station E1TX DID detect and record the PP, PPR and the Rayleigh/Love (surface) waves appear on the seismogram below.
