Earthquake Update For 11/2/2012
On the southern Philippine island of Mindanao there was a magnitude 6.4 earthquake according to the U.S Geological survey. The good news about this earthquake is that there were no reports of damages, or loss of life.
There were after shocks that were later reported, but they were hardly felt in the area. This particular area is in the vicinity of the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” where earthquake and also volcanic activity takes place on regular basis.
This 6.4 is yet another large earthquake in the many magnitude 6.0 or higher earthquakes that we witnessed during the Masset Canada earthquake swarm, which we are still having aftershocks for even today. As the object that is in space is approaching, earthquake intensity and frequency should spike up, which is what is currently happening if you have been taking notes on earthquake activity.
