Japanâ€™s recent magnitude 9 earthquake, which triggered a devastating tsunami, relieved stress along part of the quake fault but also has contributed to the buildup of stress in other areas, putting some of the country at risk for up to years of sizeable aftershocks and perhaps new main shocks.
A new National Research Council report presents a 20-year road map for increasing U.S. resilience to earthquakes, including a major earthquake that could strike a highly populated area.
Mega-quakes, such as the recent massive temblor off the coast of Japan are not expected to set off other large quakes in distant regions of the world.
While Japanâ€™s massive earthquake and accompanying tsunami represent a devastating natural disaster for the countryâ€™s residents, scientists should also seize upon the massive temblor as an important learning tool for future quakes around the world, including the Pacific Northwest coast of the United States.
Members of the New Zealand Skeptics Society have scheduled a "non-event" luncheon at the earthquake ravaged city of Christchurch on March 20--the same day that "Moonman" Ken Ring has predicted that a second series of tremors will rock the country's second-largest city.
