    Two quakes on Eastern coast of Kamchatka, Russia within past few hours, a 5.8 at 43km and a 5.4 at 55km. Also, yesterday there were 4 between 4.8 and 5.2 around Honshu, Japan.
    Alvin, do you think there will be a stronger event here soon? I read that geologists feel that the stress from the March event has not been released yet. Your thoughts would be much appreciated, thanks.


    • Grace, the Alaskan region is one of the most dangerous on the planet. It has traditionally produced some of the largest earthquakes on record and their is a tectonic anomaly under Alaska involving mantle movement. The planet is only growing more stressful and seismically resonate and this will continue to be the case into the future.
