By Gang Phan – “Japan’s Meteorological Agency on Friday warned the country’s 20 volcanoes has become alive due to the massive March 11 earthquake, and a study said [an] earthquake over 9.0-magnitude might hit Japan.

The Agency said volcanic explosion[s] occurred after earthquake[s] several times in history and people should maintain vigilance against this tendency.

The number of earthquake[s] above 6.0 M reached 77 on March.  And 74 out of them occurred in [the] quake-hit region, were aftershock[s]. The number is 50 times over the same period last year.

The largest aftershock on April 7 [that] hit Japan has killed 4 people, injured at least 166, and caused a power outage [for] over 2.61 million households, according to Japan’s police officials. The Meteorological Agency warned aftershocks above 6.0 M like the April 7 earthquake probably would hit Japan again.”  Read more.
