460 Earthquakes and no sign of slowing down - JAPAN - 12th Mar 2011

The first Earhquake to strike this area during the Swarm started in fact on Wednesday 9th of March 2011 when a 7.2 Magnitude was recorded just of the Coast of Honshu, which was followed by many aftershocks including 3 measuring higher than 6 Magnitude.

Since the 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake hit of the coast of Honshu there has been a 7.1 Magnitude aftershock and more than 20 aftershocks measuring at 6 magnitude or higher.

As of this morning there is no sign that these aftershocks are slowing down, however several aftershocks have been recorded measuring below 5 Magnitude, which is the first time in days.

Our thoughts are with the people of Japan.
