Before that, 38 earthquakes have been registered around #the #ring #of #fire and 16 of it were stronger than 4.0 and happened in #Fiji, #Peru, #Indonesia and #Japan. Within 24 hours, a total of 53 earthquakes have been registered around the ring of fire with a magnitude of 2.5 and up.
How an emergency aid mission from Moonlight Air Organization will look like in such an event:
The earthquake happened 23:40 UTC (17:40 local time). At the time we receive the emergency request, the standby crew and volunteers will be informed. Because we have up to 100 tons of #emergency #aid stored in our warehouse at the airport, the aircraft can be loaded within 2 hours. During the same time, the flight crew will be briefed about the #mission, #flight #route, #weather, ect. The aircraft take off at 02:00 UTC with 5 crews and 15 volunteers on board. The entire journey take 15 hours including one fuel stop, so the aircraft will land just before 12:00 local time directly in #Oaxaca airport.
