Complete Headline: Sixty nine major earthquakes hit the Pacific's Ring of Fire in just 48 hours driving fears that the 'Big One' is about to hit California

Fears that a deadly earthquake may soon hit California have emerged after a swarm of quakes rocked one of Earth's major geological disaster zones.

Sixteen 'significant' tremors - those at magnitude 4.5 or above - shook the Pacific 'Ring of Fire' on Monday, following a spate of 53 that hit the region Sunday.

The quakes rattled Indonesia, Bolivia, Japan and Fiji, but failed to reach the western coast of the United States, which also falls along the infamous geological ring.

The tremors have raised concerns that California's 'Big One' - a destructive earthquake of magnitude 8 or greater - may be looming.

Scientists have previously warned that the state, which straddles the huge San Andreas Fault Line, is long overdue a deadly event of this size.

It’s never a matter of if, but when. It has happened before it will happen again. Temperatures have been cooler than now, and warmer than now. They will be warmer than now, and cooler than now in the future. Super volcanoes will erupt, continents will move, and earth will be impacted by large objects in the future just as it has been in the past.

You are totally correct, in that ‘CHANGE’ is not an optional thing, it will continue to occur, and mankind has to adapt to survive. It’s like talking over a return to the glacier age of 12,900 years ago....sooner or later, it will occur.

I’m sorry but when I read or hear the words “Ring Of Fire”, I’m immediately reminded of Johnny Cash.

Also three significant ones in the New Madrid zone.

2018 will be a bad year for earthquakes

Some freepers scoffed at this when the results were posted here way back in the first part of this year.

Seems like pressure is being released.

One might think that the release of pressure over such a wide area would be a good thing.

If this was correlated, (many earthquakes as precursor to the BIG one) I would think this would be bigger news.
