What in the world is going on? The number of earthquakes that we are seeing in the United States and around the world is getting scary. In the past week alone, there have been over 2000 earthquakes in the region around California. In fact, the whole area has been shaking like a leaf ever since a 7.2 earthquake rattled the western United States and Mexico on Easter Sunday. In particular, the area from Los Angeles down through the Baja peninsula is just being hammered with quakes.
So is this an indication that the "Big One" is on the way soon?
Well, it isn't the end of the world just yet, but considering the number of big earthquakes that are hitting the rest of the world, we all need to start sitting up and paying attention.
What has happened already this year in Haiti and Chile could very well happen anywhere along the "Ring of Fire".
But it just isn't the Ring of Fire that is in the danger zone. Massive earthquakes have started to pop up all over the place.
In fact, at least 400 people have died and thousands have been injured by a magnitude 6.9 earthquake that just hit western China's Qinghai province.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a magnitude 6.2 earthquake stuck southern Spain on Monday approximately 14 miles to the southeast of the city of Granada.
It seems like almost every single week now there are reports of massive earthquakes happening somewhere in the world.
The earth is starting to shake.
Nobody seems to know why it is happening or if it will stop, but it is happening.
So what is going to happen next?
Is the shaking going to get even worse?
Is a devastating earthquake going to hit the United States?
We'll just have to wait and see.
Buckle up and get ready - this is going to be a very interesting ride.
