44,000 plus people have evacuated the Japanese town of Mashiki on the southern portion of the Land of The Rising Sun following a 7.4 magnitude earthquake that has killed at least 9 and injured 858. If you have been paying attention, you may have noticed the frequency of earthquakes being reported in 2016 has been unyielding. Recently a magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit Vanuatu,a magnitude 5.9 earthquake hit the southern Philippines. A magnitude 6.9 earthquake rocked Myanmar. On April 10 a 6.6-magnitude quake hit Kabul with aftershocks in India. On April 8, there was a magnitude 4.2 earthquake in Nepal. Nepal was also hit with a larger 5.5 magnitude quake on February 22. January 20, there was a 6.1-magnitude earthquake in China, and 16 days prior 11 people died when a 6.7-magnitude earthquake hit Manipur in India.
Michael Snyder of End Of The American Dream writes “Why is the crust of the Earth shaking so violently all of a sudden? Seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado has made headlines all over the world by warning that “current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude”. If his projections are accurate, our planet could be on the precipice of a wave of natural disasters unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced before.”
