The Japan Meteorological Agency has stopped announcing the probability of aftershocks in Kumamoto Prefecture because past occurrences are not providing the guide they did before, according to an agency official.
The decision to stop announcing estimates is unusual, since the JMA has always released probabilities, with the exception of earthquake swarms.
Aftershock probabilities are usually calculated based on data compiled from past cases, like those indicating the downward trend in the frequency of aftershocks.
The JMA would typically make announcements such as, “Over the next three days, there is a probability of aftershocks measuring lower 5 or higher on the Japanese seismic intensity scale of 7.”
Add to this the fact that Major Earthquake Tracking sites like USGS Are Severely Downgrading or not even Listing Earthquakes from around the globe.
You start to see we have a big problem. The ones responsible for letting us know whats going on, are keeping information from us on a global scale.
One thing is for sure, we are experiencing a global uptick in Quake activity and we are being left in the dark on data that counts!
