It’s Stalin’s fault the Russians suffered this earthquake. If he had not demanded the Kurile Islands in 1945, this would have been a Japanese earthquake, not a Russian earthquake.
I’m amazed that Stalin let us keep Alaska. I guess Japan was in no position to argue very much at the time; They’re lucky they didn’t grow up communist and look a lot like No. Korea even now.
Seismic activity seems to have abated somewhat out in CA & NV... for the time being anyway.
What a funny coincidence that the Pope just flew out of the Vatican?
