Since the Fukushima incident back in 2011, earthquakes in Japan have become a serious concern, which is why the earthquakes that rocked Fukuoka last week left residents feeling particularly rattled. At least 40 people were killed by the series of tremors, and many more were injured under the weight of collapsed buildings and fallen debris.
While this tragic loss of life is the most unsettling aspect of all, something else continues to baffle locals.
