7/20/2014 — 6.7M earthquake stikes off the shores of Eastern Russia / North Japan

A sizable 6.7M earthquake has struck East of Kamchatka Russia / Kuril Islands (Northeast of Japan).

Ironic we seem to see these larger earthquakes before Typhoons come into the region….. Typhoon “MATMO” currently on path towards Taiwan / South Japanese Islands.
