The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on The Daily Sheeple

Editor’s Note: This is now the 5th large earthquake (over 6.0) in the last two days. What is going on?

A day after yesterday’s “biggest quake since 2011’s tsunami,” at 1:25 local time, Japan was just struck with a massive aftershock in the form of a Magnitude 7.0 earthquake, which means it was roughly 10 times stronger than yesterday’s tremor:

  • The earthquake was centered just southeast of Kumamoto.
  • It struck about at a shallow depth of 10 kilometers.
  • A tsunami advisory has been issued for coastal areas.
  • Kumamoto is the capital city of Kumamoto Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, Japan.
  • As of March 1, 2010, the city has an estimated population of 731,286 and a population density of 1,880 persons per km2

State broadcaster NHK reports that a tsunami advisory is for possible wave of 1 metre in height.

Less than 30 minutes after the initial quake, at least two M5.8 and M5.7 aftershocks has been reported.
