Attached is a USGS map of earthquakes in the past week on Kyushu, the Southern island of Japan.
- More are expected.
The media is reporting 'landslides' but I'm told the ground is 'cracking' or opening-up in large gaps/chasms.
- The pattern suggests the island itself may be splitting in half.
Financial media has correctly reported the cessation of some auto manufacturing in Japan as a result of supply disruptions (JIT -just in time- inventory isn't always your friend).
- I haven't seen or heard of anyone considering the nuclear power plants in the region vis these earthquakes. Maybe they should make some advance preparations to mothball some of them or put them into a 'safe' mode in the event of a failure. Remember Fukushima?
