Recent geological activities in Southeast Asia, particularly in the Philippines and Indonesia, have raised concerns. A powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 7.6 struck off the southern Philippine coast, triggering a tsunami warning that was later lifted. Fortunately, there were no immediate reports of major damage or casualties. Meanwhile, Indonesia’s Marapi Volcano erupted, causing the death of 11 climbers with 12 still missing. The region, part of the Pacific’s “Ring of Fire,” is prone to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes due to tectonic plate movements. The occurrence of a geomagnetic storm is unrelated to these geological events, as it is a solar phenomenon.
