Every year, the “Ring of Fire” accounts for the vast majority of the seismic activity that happens on our planet.
The good news is that most of the major events occur in areas that are not heavily populated, and so usually the damage that is caused is minimal.
But the bad news is that the west coast of the United States and the entire nation of Japan both sit directly along the “Ring of Fire”, and scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before both areas are hit by horrific catastrophes.
In Japan, officials are watching Mt. Fuji very carefully. It hasn’t erupted in more than 300 years, but experts are warning that the next....READ MORE
