This is a very important video talking about all the earthquakes, volcanoes, and global unrest that has been going on. Watchmen need to be watching for these things. There was a 6.8 earthquake in Alaska yesterday, and a 7.8 in Japan this morning. This video will go into greater detail, and warn you of some possible earthquakes that might be coming to North America, Asia, and Europe.
News article about Alaskan earthquake:
The US Geological Survey says there has been a 6.8 magnitude off the southwest coast of Alaska on Friday. The epicenter is 110km south-southeast of Ugashik with the center estimated at 33km deep.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said that no tsunami was expected. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
On May 25, there was another quake in Alaska’s Fox Islands region magnitude 4.8. It occurred some 96km southwest of Nikolski settlement on Umnak Island and was 38km deep.
With over 100 volcanoes and volcanic fields, Alaska is a seismically-active territory where earthquakes are commonplace. The largest magnitude earthquake in mainland Alaska occurred on October 29, 1968. It registered magnitude 6.5 and was located southeast of the village of Rampart, on the Yukon River.
8.5 earthquake hits Japan this morning:
TOKYO — A powerful and extremely deep earthquake struck near remote Japanese islands and shook Tokyo on Saturday, but officials said there was no danger of a tsunami, and no injuries or damage were immediately reported.
The magnitude-8.5 offshore earthquake struck off the Ogasawara islands at 8:24 p.m. at a depth of 370 miles, Japan’s Meteorological Agency said. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.8 and a depth of 421 miles.
Public broadcaster NHK said there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
But the temblor was powerful enough to rattle large parts of Japan’s main island of Honshu. Buildings swayed in Tokyo — about 620 miles north of the Ogasawara islands — and stopped some train services in the city. There were reports that parts of the capital were without power.
The meteorological agency did not issue a tsunami warning because the quake struck so far beneath the earth’s surface. Deep offshore earthquakes usually do not cause tsunamis, and generally cause less damage than shallow ones.

Volcano Erupts On Japan Island Kuchinoerabujima:
A volcano has erupted on the remote island of Kuchinoerabujima in southern Japan.
Plumes of black smoke were seen rising high into the sky as lava flowed down the side of Mount Sindake to reach the ocean.
A coastguard vessel has been sent to evacuate the 140 residents – whose only access to the outside world is by boat – and some flights have been diverted from the island which is around 1,000km (621 miles) southwest of Tokyo.
The volcano also erupted last summer, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported, adding that the area where lava was found has been out of bounds since.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said officials would do everything to look after the islanders.
“We will expend all our efforts to ensure the safety of all the residents of the island,” Mr Abe said.
The island is about 160 km (100 miles) south of Kyushu Electric Power’s Sendai nuclear plant on Japan’s southernmost main island of Kyushu.
The power company was given the final go-ahead on Wednesday to restart its plant following the 2011 Fukushima disaster, but it is not clear if the volcanic eruption will affect its plans.
Japan is one of the world’s most seismically active nations and there has been a rise in volcanic activity in recent weeks.
More than 60 people were killed in September last year when Mount Ontake in central Japan erupted without warning while packed with hikers.
