M5.6 in Samoa

A magnitude 5.6 earthquake occurred this morning, 02 June 2018 at 11:53hrs UTC, in Samoa.  We were not anticipating recording this event as it >70 polar degrees way and ~48km deep.  The strong amplitudes could be an effect of convolution of several wave forms.  No damages nor tsunami threats have been reported.
