A day after a massive earthquake near Alaska sparked tsunami alerts for the U.S. West Coast, a magnitude 6.2 quake was reported early Wednesday off the coast of Japan, officials said.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit at 9:50 p.m. local time about 64 miles northeast of the island of Honshu, at a depth of about 24 miles.
In the last 48 hours, the southwestern State in the US has been rocked by eight tremors, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS). All but three of the tremors have come along the San Andreas fault – a deadly line which runs through California and is one of the most seismically active regions in the world. The strongest of the quakes came in Berkeley, near the east coast of California, which measured 4.4 on the Richter scale.
Thomas Jordan, head of the Southern California Earthquake Center, told the Los Angeles Times last year: “Any time there is significant seismic activity in the vicinity of the San Andreas Fault, we seismologists get nervous. “Because we recognise that the probability of having a large earthquake goes up.”
Seems like the "Ring Of Fire" is starting to fire up around the planet.

Yup, there's no correlation between them. The prophecy is about the human consciousness evolution.
Either we start living in peace without bombs or the nature itself will finish us.
And don't worry, not trying to sell any idea/belief. Just getting it recorded for when (if) happens.
*But back on topic...*
I heard the intense fires in Cali were due to the magma activity beneath the surface.
If something was reaaaally going on, shouldn't the government know already?
And if yes, why keep it from us? (besides mass panic)
Tuesday, January 23, 2018, 8:52 - On November 7, 2017 a 3.2 earthquake shook Los Angeles in the middle of the night, waking-up residents and lighting up thousands of alarms on local social media networks. According to the USGS the epicenter was 7.5 miles deep and centered in the West Athens area, not far from Los Angeles International Airport.
And as recent as January 23, 2018, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake off the coast of Alaska triggered tsunami warnings up along the entire West Coast. All this recent activity has brought up the same question locals ask year after year when the ground shakes: What if California was hit by an 8.2 quake like Mexico?
According to Southern California Earthquake Center director Thomas Jordan, the most famous fault in the world has been quiet for a long time, too quiet, and is now "locked, loaded and ready to roll".
Scientists who know more than you or me, are saying that a large quake hitting California is long overdue.
Scientists have found strong evidence that 2018 will see a big uptick in the number of large earthquakes globally. Earth's rotation, as with many things, is cyclical, slowing down by a few milliseconds per day then speeding up again.
You and I will never notice this very slight variation in the rotational speed of Earth. However, we will certainly notice the result, an increase in the number of severe earthquakes.
