Magnitude 5+ Earthquakes – Global
5.1 Earthquake hits offshore Coquimbo, Chile.
Japan – The coastline of northeastern Japan that dropped by more than 3 feet during the 9.0 magnitude Fukushima quake in 2011 is now rising steadily.
The tectonic thrust also shifted the coast eastward 18 feet as it generated a tsunami that ravaged coastal areas. But satellite observations show that one spot on the Oshika Peninsula in Miyagi Prefecture has risen by 1.3 feet since measurements were taken the day after the 2011 temblor.
Other locations have seen lesser, but significant, rises.
