More earthquakes have hit along the Ring of Fire – and there may be hundreds more to come. In the last few days, earthquakes have also brought terror to Alaska, Papua New Guinea, Mexico, Indonesia, Hawaii and Chile while Japan has seen the spectacular eruption of Mount Kusatsu-Shirane – all of which are on the terrifying Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire is the largest and most active fault line in the world, stretching from New Zealand, all around the east coast of Asia, over to Canada and the USA and all the way down to the southern tip of South America.
