Multiple earthquakes have killed dozens and injured thousands more on Japan's Kyushu Island.
The quakes started late Thursday night local time, when a magnitude-6.2 earthquake struck the island, killing at at least nine people.
Another more powerful earthquake hit Saturday morning local time. The U.S. Geological survey put that quake at a 7.0 magnitude.
Saturday's quake also prompted a landslide and several aftershocks — the strongest of which measured at a 5.7 magnitude — again almost with the same epicenter.
So why is the same spot being hit repeatedly? Japan is in a region known as the Ring of Fire where tectonic plates make it susceptible to earthquakes.
Since the quakes, thousands have been evacuated and thousands more left without power.
The country has held emergency meetings since the first quake. On Saturday local time, the prime minister announced an intensive rescue effort as many are believed to be trapped under collapsed buildings.
