Two Earthquakes Today

I'm sorry that title is misleading. I meant to say two earthquakes of more than 6.0 magnitude. These are big earthquakes that can cause damage and/or a tsunami. So where were they? One was in Papua New Guinea and the other in the Mid Atlantic Ridge. Look at all the others. The earth is shaking. An understatement.
