The Ring of Fire along the Pacific Rim is increasing earthquake, tsunami, and volcanic activity.

March 2015 is ending with a bang – the globe is experiencing a wave of volcanoes, large earthquakes, and tsunamis, with most of the activity rocking the Western Pacific Rim and the Antarctic Plate.

Large earthquakes, tsunami warnings, and volcanic eruptions are rocking with the Earth today.

This week has started out quite active, to say the least. My Disaster Alert App has been going off all day – and signaling BIG movement – all over the planet.

We need to pay attention to this activity.

Large Quakes 6-23-14
