Quantectum has previously announced that the potentially dangerous tectonic waves (D-waves) are passing through the Vanuatu region are resulting in the high active tractions. The post from February 12, 2024, is available here. D-waves (D stands for Dangerous) are potentially dangerous tectonic waves due to the elevated seismic activity along these waves, including major seismic event and their contribution to the elevation of tectonic tractions (shear- and dynamic traction) in multiple regions worldwide.

There have been no reports of damage, injuries, or casualties as a result of the earthquake so far. No tsunami warning has been issued.


* The exact information about the magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the earthquake might be revised within the next few hours as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other data providers issue their reports.
