Hi all

I want to point out this strange earthquake, but it is at depth of 400
km. Where I would only expect the depth to be limited to ~40 km max. But
the earthquake was on a rift zone.

This earthquake did happen in Gulf of Aden 18th of August at 01:00:58
UTC. More info here,

(Temp, link, subject to a change).=20

If this depth gets confermed, I am wondering what is going on. There was
also a earthquake at 200 km depth near Azores Islands today, I find it
strange because it is on a rift zone, not a subduction zone. The azores
Islands earthquakes can be seen here,
