I did check for volcanoes where the current earthquakes are happening.
At the island where they earthquakes are happening, there are no
volcanoes. There are volcanoes on nearby islands and areas.
Giving the pattern, I am not going to be surpriced if there is going to
be a earthquake close to Mw8.5 soon in nearby fault zones. When that
might happen is harder to say.
A link with volcano information on this area.
