Earlier today there was a magnitude 6.0 in eastern Japan, the U.S Geological Survey reported on Monday. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the quake, which the USGS said happened at 4:53 a.m. Tuesday local time.
According to the U.S Geological Survey the earthquake hit 66 miles east of Miyako, Japan, and some 327 kilometers northeast of Tokyo. There were no tsunami warnings, and there was no reports of injuries or damages to buildings in the region.
In the last 7 days the earth has been shaken by 4 6.0 or greater earthquakes according to the U.S Geological Survey feed. Here is the list of earthquakes measuring 5.0 or greater:

Seismic Activity at the El Hierro volcano in the Canary islands continues to remain subdued compared to the past week’s strong seismic crisis. One of the strongest earthquakes so far has been the 3.8 magnitude earthquake in the area.
Most the earthquakes continue to cluster offshore at around 20 km in-depth.
Seismicity has increased at the Telica volcano in Nicaragua. Small, shallow earthquakes continue at an elevated level at the lliamna volcano at the Alaska ridge. Frequent earthquake activity continues at the southern margin of Long Valley Caldera. A magnitude 3.0 earthquake has struck another caldera in the western U.S.A. last night, which measured 3.2 event occurred northwest of Yellowstone caldera.
One of the more active volcanoes as of late has been the Colima volcano with small explosions reported, along with hybrid earthquakes and rockfalls.
12 moderate explosions rocked the Fuego volcano overnight, with some of the explosions being felt 15 kilometers distant from the volcano and deposited fine volcanic ash an equal distance.
A swarm of low-amplitude volcanic and volcano-tectonic earthquakes affects Nevado Del Ruiz volcano today.
Magnitudes and numbers of volcanic earthquakes continue to increase at the Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador, which indicates increasing gas fluid flow upward through the volcano’s conduit.
Dolphin Deaths Continue In Leon
A baby whale and three dead dolphins washed up on three different beaches last week, leaving beachgoers in the area wondering what is going on with the dolphins.
According to officials it is believed that those dolphins were also caught in a strong current and banged against the rocks in the area.
Experts, however, say it’s unusual for dolphins, which are very strong swimmers, to get stuck in normal ocean currents.
With many of the mass animal death that we have witnessed in the past few years, there have been several explanations given to the public.
Some explanations just do not make sense, even with this recent mass dolphin death.
“It would not be normal for healthy dolphins to get caught up currents and banged on rocks, unless there was a hurricane, or if some Navy sonar was driving them crazy and inshore,” says Denise Herzing, head of the U.S.-based Wild Dolphin Project.
Authorities continue to investigate the mysterious fish deaths in the area last week, as they washed up on the coast of San Francisco Libre, on the northern shore of Lake Managua.
