Ring of Fire chaos continues after Japan is rattled by major quake

There was no danger of a tsunami, according to local authorities.

As the west coast of the United States continues to rumble, there are indications that the increase in earthquakes could be a global phenomenon.

Just days ago, southern California was shaken by a number of significant earthquakes and aftershocks, causing injuries and destruction of property in their wake.

Then, just today, two quakes struck within hours of each other.  The first shook the citizens of Seattle, Washington in their sleep with the second temblor returning for an encore in The Golden State’s southern end.

The United States Geological Survey confirmed the tremor hit north of the Okinawan islands. The islands are part of the wider Ryukyu Islands chain and are south of the main Japanese islands of Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu. There are no confirmed reports of casualties or damage.

The city is the capital of the Okinawa Prefecture which has a population of around 320,000.

Okinawa is located within the ring of fire basin.

The ring of fire encapsulates nearly the entire Pacific Ocean’s coastline, including major faults off the coasts of Japan, Canada, and the United States.

There was no danger of a tsunami, according to local authorities.
