It has been a crazy 24 hours on this beautiful planet. Lots of unrest at the plate boundaries, fracking operations, and volcanoes! Not only did the M7.8 quake off the coast of Russia make news, but the Peru M6.6 hit shortly after, and was felt in Chile! So far, no reports of injuries or casualties in Russia, Alaska, or Peru.
Today has seen several follow-up quakes, including swarms in Canada and California. More volcanoes have been waking up as well.
Keep an eye on the Recent Earthquakes feed in the sidebar.
WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN?
Well, some may think it’s a sign of our end of days. There are also scientific reasons, such as the sun’s latest Cornoal Mass Ejection that hit us just a day before this activity. Some people believe that space weather (solar wind,) has a large impact on plate movement due to pressure and magnetism.
Maybe it’s both. Only God knows.
Note: The magnitudes posted here are from the original reports. Magnitudes can be changed/updated up to 72 hours past their hit.
The earth trembled and quaked,
and the foundations of the mountains shook;
they trembled because he was angry.
(Psalm 18:7 NIV)
