Ring of Fire

The USGS reports several earthquakes in the last few hours in the Solomon Islands located in the South Pacific. The largest being 7.2 in magnitude and causing tsunami waves. The Solomon Islands are a part of the "Ring of Fire" which is located in the same subduction zone as the west coast of the United States. The term "none of us are an island" is true and understanding that keeping watch with happens to other parts of our world, helps us be better prepared in our corner of our planet.

Remember Newton's third law of motion: "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction". Are you prepared?
