Seems that the disasters that happened last year is repeating again this year ?
The Earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand happened again for the second time and so has the Australian Floods.
I hope we do not see another huge quake in Japan.

SYDNEY - More than 8,000 people fled their homes in Australia's flood-hit southeast Tuesday as fears grew that a levee holding back the swollen Murrumbidgee River would fail. Floods have hit three eastern states this week, sweeping two men to their deaths after they attempted to cross waterways in cars while inundating hundreds of homes and causing millions of dollars in damage. Prime Minister Julia Gillard said the military had been deployed to several areas and was on stand-by to help other stricken towns if the crisis deepened. "We've got floodwaters across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria," she told reporters. "For the people of Wagga particularly, this is a very anxious time." Some 8,800 people have been ordered to evacuate the city of Wagga Wagga and its surrounds where the Murrumbidgee is predicted to peak at 10.9 metres (36 feet), right on the levee's limit, at 6:00 pm (0800 GMT). "There is a significant risk that the levee will overtop or potentially breach," said State Emergency Service spokesman Andrew Richards. Richards said while the levee was so far working to protect the commercial centre of Wagga Wagga, across the river in North Wagga Wagga many of the homes from which 600 people have been evacuated had likely been swamped. "The reports we are getting from Wagga are that a significant number of homes in that area have been affected," Richards told AFP as the river rushed towards a level not seen since 1844. Wagga Wagga has been hit by several significant floods since the earliest European settlement in the 1840s, and officials said residents had responded well to the latest evacuation order. "I knew where my house lies - if the levee were to overflow my street, it was pretty quickly going to go - so I went," Melina Skidmore told state broadcaster ABC. Officials said while the flood would peak in Wagga Wagga later Tuesday, there were fears that the waters would create an ongoing emergency for weeks to come as the waters gushed to communities downstream. Around New South Wales state about 13,000 people have been asked to leave their homes due to flooding, with more than 250 properties already inundated and a number of rural communities isolated by the rising waters. Flooding has also hit rural regions in Victoria and Queensland states. The National Farmers' Federation said while it was too early to put a cost on the disaster, cotton crops had been damaged, as well as grain silos, while many livestock had been swept away.

Eastern Australia was hit by devastating floods in early 2011 which claimed more than 30 lives, flooded thousands of homes and left vast swathes of the country swamped, including the Queensland capital Brisbane.

I believe there is a trend in most things and they seem to repeat again eventhough the odds may be heavily stacked against it.
Whenever we are having a good run of luck it tends to keep going for a while, and similarly when we are suffering losses it can only get worse.

These quakes have a bad habit of triggering other sleeping quajes to wake up. Hope it is not the culmination towards 2012 Prophesy.
Quake sensitive areas always get tremmors.
They expect a very major one in Tokyo too over the next few years.
