A BIG 7.6 Mag Earthquake!
The Kermadec Islands are a subtropical island arc in the South Pacific Ocean 800–1,000 km (500–620 mi) northeast of NewZealand's North Island, and a similar distance southwest of Tonga. The islands are part of New Zealand, 33 km2 (12.7 sq mi) in total area and nowadays uninhabited, except for the permanently manned Raoul Island Station, the northernmost outpost of New Zealand.
Polynesian people settled the Kermadec Islands in around the 14th century (and perhaps previously in the 10th century), but when Europeans reached the area in 1788 they found no inhabitants. The islands were named for the French captain Jean-Michel Huon de Kermadec, who visited the islands as part of the d'Entrecasteaux expedition in the 1790s. European settlers, initially the Bell family, lived on the islands from the early nineteenth century until 1937, as did whalers. One of the Bell daughters, Elsie K. Morton, recounted the family's experience there in her memoir, Crusoes of Sunday Island.

Lying some 1000 kilometres northeast of New Zealand, the Kermadec Islands Nature Reserve is the most remote conservation area managed by the Department of Conservation.
All islands of the Kermadec group are part of a specially protected nature reserve. You can only visit the islands with a landing permit from the Department of Conservation.
The waters surrounding the Kermadec Islands are also protected in the Kermadec Marine Reserve, which at 745,000ha is New Zealand's largest. Visitors are free to explore and enjoy the marine reserve.
1000 kilometres northeast of New Zealand. The islands are remote and can only be accessed by private boat or charter vessel.
The most remarkable feature of the Pacific Ocean floor in the vicinity of New Zealand is the long, narrow, and very deep Kermadec Trench that runs north-easterly towards Tonga in the general direction of the main mountain axis of the North Island. The Kermadec Islands stand on the inner edge of it in latitude 30° S and longitude 178° W, some 600 miles north-east of Auckland. Instability of this part of the ocean floor is reflected in the volcanic structure of the islands, the evidence of volcanic activity in the recent past, and the frequency of local and sometimes severe earthquakes.
The biggest island of the group is Raoul (or Sunday) Island (7,260 acres), of volcanic origin with a large crater occupying much of its area. Though the highest point is only 1,760 ft, its surface is broken by deep ravines and rocky spurs that end at the sea in steep cliffs. North-west of it is the little group of the Herald Islets, seven in all and of similar volcanic origin, and a little to the south are Curtis, Macauley, and L'Esperance Islets. These, too, are of volcanic origin with evidence of recent activity in Curtis Island.
Macauley and Curtis were discovered by Lieutenant Watts, RN, in 1780, but it was d'Entrecasteaux who found the whole group in 1785 and gave it the name Kermadec after the captain of one of his ships l'Esperance. The first settlers (Baker and Reid) came in 1837 and lived by growing potatoes and subtropical crops for sale to visiting whalers. The islands were abandoned on account of volcanic action in 1872, but in 1878 settlement started again with the coming of the Bell family. The last of these was evacuated on the outbreak of war in 1914. It was in this war that the island group became better known in connection with the German raider Wolf and the recapture there of Count von Luckner. The islands were formally annexed by New Zealand in 1886. Settlement since the 1914–18 war has been sporadic and unsuccessful, mainly on account of the isolation of the group.
Before and during the 1939–45 war, new interest was taken by the New Zealand Government in setting up a military outpost, and later some Cook Islanders were settled there to grow oranges. At present a meteorological and radio station is maintained on Raoul (Sunday) Island. The total population of this, the only inhabited member of the group, including the official staff of the station, numbers only 10.

Welcome to LP, Ronisloss! We hope that you have fun here!
The best thing is to read the very first post of this thread!
Also, look at the lotto examples that are posted with many of
the earthquake notifications on the pages of the thread. If you
see something that confirms your own workouts, or if you see
something that you like, then consider selecting those numbers.
