(Meredith) – Some scientists are saying they believe the earth might be overdue for a “major earthquake,” the Weather Channel reported on Friday.

According to a video posted on their website, scientists believe areas like California and Japan are “overdue for a major earthquake.”

The scientists believe we are due because of the recent earthquakes in Alaska and California. They also said there is no way to tell when an earthquake like this would strike.
