There has been a large number of earthquakes and aftershocks in New Zealand occurring over the past 24 hours since the 7.8 magnitude earthquake yesterday.
Earthquake activity along the “Ring of Fire” has been increasing lately, with quakes ranging from the 4.5 to 6.0 and greater, as well as the 7.8 yesterday.
As you can see from the photo above, the activity has been very heavy all along the “Ring of Fire” for large earthquakes, everywhere but the United States. With all of this seismic activity and shifting of the plates it’s only a matter of time before some large quakes strike the Pacific rim of North America!
