Uptick in Earthquakes!


UPI reports a 6.2 magnitude earthquake not too far east off the coast from Fukushima:
Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck early Thursday the coast of Japan and 228 miles from a nuclear power plant that had a meltdown from a 2011 quake and subsequent tsunami.  The temblor hit at 2:37 a.m. in Japan, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was centered about 6 miles deep in the Pacific Ocean, 174 miles east-south of Kamaishi and about 315 miles northeast of Tokyo.https://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2017/09/20/62-magnitude-earthquake-strikes-Japanese-coast/2551505943678/

It’s the third large earthquake to strike in the past 24-hours, after a disastrous one in Mexico, and smaller one in New Zealand.
The earthquake in Mexico looks to be catastrophic. My heart goes out to the people there!

The Fukushima plant looks ordinary on the cams:

 




Of course, contaminated water "leaks" aren't visible on the cams.
