We are rapidly approaching a peak period of risk as forecast by earthquake watchers. Geologists may disagree. It is not an exact science. But we can say without contradiction that the situation is abnormal - for example yesterday the 22nd produced 4 serious earthquakes (intensity 6.6, 6.4, 6.4, 6.1) in the Japan area. The current hyperactive situation shows no signs of slowdown.
Fortunately the Sun obligingly played its part a few days ago when it ejected a major outburst of plasma away from the Earth.
