So, whats comes next aftetr the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan? Well, looking at the world and the last BIG earthquake let me come up with the following thought :
Where will be the next big one?
Honestly I think the last 3 big ones are connected with each other due to en huge contraction in the pacific plate.
First we had the Earthquake in Chile with a magnitude of 8.8 . After this one we had the earthquake in New Zealand with 6.3 .
So, my point is after japan, which is a third point of a this quader. Now there is a forth point missing.
This forth point directely to California.
My guess is that we are pretty close to a huge contraccion on the californian cost. Of course, noone knows exactly when
it will happen, but we all know that it will happen. This fact and the fact of the last 3 big quakes over the last year points to that it will happen rather sooner than later.
