Japan Quake Map


That’s the number of earthquakes Japan has experienced suffered over the last eight days. The animation starts out slow with two tremors of around 5M and then the big one strikes and its quake after quake after quake. It’s no wonder there is so much devastation.

When I started looking at this interactive map, there were only 589. In less than 5 minutes later, another quake had stuck.
