Another major quake strikes Japan as massive coronol hole turns to face the Earth


No tsunami warning has been issued for this event.
There is a low likelihood of casualties and damage.
A magnitude 6.0 - 113km NNE of Nago, Japan is the fourth major quake to strike in the last 3 day's.
This mornings strike was the 13th major quake of September and brings the total for the year to 105.
September has recorded 8 major quakes in the last 9 day's.
We can expect more major quakes in the coming week as a large coronal hole on the sun turns to face the earth, coronal holes are thought by many experts to influence seismic activity here on earth, see below.

CORONAL HOLE TURNING TOWARD EARTH: A vast "coronal hole" has opened up in the sun's atmosphere, and it is spewing solar wind into space.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is monitoring the structure as it turns toward Earth:
Coronal holes are regions in the sun's atmosphere where the magnetic field peels back and allows solar wind to escape.
