Posted October 29, 2018 06:24:07We’re still recovering from the devastating Tsunami, but with the number of major quakes reported to be over 700 since the start of the year, it’s easy to forget that we’ve still had a few big ones in the past few months.
But this year, the last big one hit Japan in December.
It was the biggest quake to hit the country since a devastating earthquake in 2011, and was the most powerful quake ever recorded in the Pacific.
That quake was so strong that it caused a tsunami, which killed more than 7,000 people and displaced millions more.
It’s the second-largest quake to be felt on Japan after the 2012 Tohoku Trough Earthquake, which caused an estimated $1.8 trillion in damage.
But what you may not know is that Japan has had at least one other earthquake this year that didn’t hit Japan.
The Tsunamis have killed at least 6,000 since the beginning of 2018, and the next two are expected to be even bigger.
The next quake will be on March 3.
While the first two Tsunams hit Japan on January 11, the third hit Japan the same day, on January 17.
That was also the same week that Japan recorded its largest earthquake in decades, a magnitude 7.1 that killed more people than any other earthquake since 1900.
The last time Japan had a magnitude 6.0 quake this big was in April 2021.
That one also caused a major tsunami that washed away most of the city of Saitama, destroying more than 6,500 homes and killing at least 8,000 more.
The next three earthquakes on Japan’s calendar, all of which are expected this year (including the upcoming April 3 one), are expected in the spring of 2019.
