Tokyo advised to brace for massive earthquake

Published 1 September 2011

Japanese scientists warned Thursday that Tokyo may soon be hit by a massive earthquake as a result of a surge in seismic activity. Seismologists at the University of Tokyo detected a huge increase of small tremors in the tectonic plates below the Japanese capital. The scientists monitoring the quakes are worried that a combination of earthquakes in two or more points in the Earth’s crust could combine, thus doubling their destructive power.
