Reading about the recent swarm of earthquakes in Japan is fascinating and also a bit disturbing.
“Seismic activity in southern Japan is mystifying geologists and keeping the nation on edge.”
It’s all happening on the island of Kyushu, which I am now learning about.
“The Japan Meteorological Agency said it is unprecedented to have a group of large quakes in these three parts of Kyushu. Experts are divided over how far the shaking will spread and whether it could prompt more quakes centered elsewhere.”
