“I don’t quite understand what is happening with the recent earthquakes, because it’s an unfamiliar phenomenon.”
— a professor with Kyoto University’s Research Center for Earthquake Prediction

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.”
