Japan Honshu Earthquake, a week later and still violently shaking


Its the 18th. It is a week since the 9.0 earthquake that destroyed many cities in northeast Japan. There still has yet to be a day without a 6.0 Magnitude aftershock. A 6.0 earthquake is a STRONG earthquake that will damage buildings and other structures within a 100 mile radius. There is more power released in a 6.0 earth quake than 20 of the strongest nuclear weapons in the United States nuclear missile arsenal. It is nearly impossible to sleep through a 6.0 earthquake.

So Japan is a week without sleep. A week of daily destructive earthquakes. A week of unbelievable stress. The questions are “how long can this go on?” and “how long can the Japanese people endure daily 6.0 earthquakes”?

Below is the summary of yesterday’s earthquake activity (magnitude 5.0 or greater) in the world. As you can see, Japan is constantly shaking in a violent way.
