Return of the Earthquakes
I recently mentioned how (in terms of earthquake activity) our planet had gone eerily quiet right at the end of the Mayan calendar. Well, seems like she was just storing them up for now:
- Austria – strongest quake (4.5) in 13 years
- Hokkaido, Japan – 6.9 quake – fortunately no damage or tsunami
- Scottish Highlands – strongest quake (2.4) in 120 years
- Solomon Islands – 6.3 quake
- Kazakhstan – 6.0 quake
All in the last 6 days.
