A Resurge In Big Earthquakes Today

A USGS map of the Middle East and Pakistan.

Pakistan is having a swarm of large earthquakes north of the Persian Gulf – USGS.

I woke up this morning to my PDC Disasters Alert app going off non-stop. It’s been rather quiet for a few days, and this was  a calm before the storm, it appears.

Today, there has been a resurge in some big quakes.

  1. 5.6  Carlsberg Ridge (west of Persian Gulf)
  2. 7.8  Awaran, Pakistan (approximately 150 killed, north of Persian Gulf)
  3. 5.9  Awaran, Pakistan
  4. 4.7  Awaran, Pakistan

Now, throw in a few quakes around Yellowstone and the Western US today:

  1. 3.2 West Yellowstone, Montana
  2. 3.0 Smith Valley, Nevada
  3. 3.0 Leavenworth, Washington

And then, throw in Typhoon Pabuk heading toward Southern Japan (just to stir things up a bit …)

It’s been an active morning. Let’s see what the afternoon brings.



Natural Disasters Made In Japan

Sakurajima Volcano

Strong explosions are occurring at Sakurajima Volcano, Japan – NASA

Japan is really getting hammered with natural disasters right now, and they are coming from everywhere.


Japan is lined with volcanoes along the Ring of Fire, which slices down the island.

The volcanoes to watch right now are (especially the volcanoes located where active earthquakes are taking place):

  1. 4.8 (Nishinoomote) followed by
  2. 5.0 (Nishinoomote)
  3. 4.5 (Chichi-shima) followed by
  4. 4.8 (Chichi-shima)
  5. 4.9 (Naze)
  6. 5.1 (Ofunato)
  7. 4.3 (Ishikaua) followed by
  8. 5.3 (Ishikaua – under Fukushima)
  9. 4.5 (Makurazaki)

Radiation Hazard Fukushima

The 4.3 and 5.3-magnitude earthquakes at Ishikaua (listed above) struck at Fukushima on September 19, 2013 where the nuclear power plant was dangerously damaged during the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The question everyone should ask is why would you build a nuclear power plant ON TOP of an active earthquake zone, which sits ON TOP of the Ring of Fire? Almost 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur in this region.

The 2011 natural disaster caused three reactors to melt, and damaged a fuel cooling pool at a fourth reactor. It is confirmed that radiation-contaminated groundwater began seeping, has been seeping and is still seeping, into the Pacific Ocean since the 2011 meltdowns.

And we wonder why dead whales, dolphins, and seals are washing onto the Pacific shores? A major disaster that’s “Made In Japan.”

The words Japan with a red moon behind the letters.

The Fukushima radiation leak is a global disaster “Made In Japan.”


Smacking the globe with natural disasters – all at once.

The Earth is covered with all kinds of natural disasters, and all at the same time.

The Earth is packing a punch. Mother Nature is smacking the globe with all kinds of natural disasters – all at once.

The planet is covered with cyclones, floods, thunderstorms, and volcanoes … and we can throw in an earthquake or two, or three.
