5.9R in Tonga

Tonga has just a few minutes ago had a 5.9R in their region, as shown in the top map. Not unusual nor an earthshattering event for their region which experiences at least this level. Just above the map shows today's stress points in this are and it is spot on in one coordinate, off by 2 degrees in the other. Did we expect this event? Yes see the Tonga calendar we expected it yesterday so within the tolerance window. Not bad.
