Earthquakes in Papua New Guinea

The sun has gone really quiet and now the earthquakes are more numerous.  What is concerning me is the number of earthquakes that are occurring at the edge of the Solomon plate near Papua New Guinea.  That little plate is a subduction zone and it has been very active lately.  The earthquakes have been deep and are in what looks like a trench on the north side of the land that has the capital.
