    there has been a very noticeable lack of M 7.0 - 7.9 events so far this year ... only 3 events

    7.3 189km SSE of Tabiauan, Philippines

    7.9 35km WNW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea

    This is well down on the avg where there should have been around 8-10 so far.
    The annual avg is 18 M 7.0 - 7.9 events, which equates to one approx every 20 days
