Economic geography is even more interesting than physical geography in Venezuela today. Here are two videos, one showing an abundance of merchandise back in 2009 and another much more recent video showing mostly empty shelves.

Seemed to be a lot of shoplifting in 2009.

Mod edit: The situation in Venezuela is dreadful, but not for discussion in this thread.

Pictures on rte.ie from the 6.7 Japanese Earthquake. There are some very striking ones of landslides that were triggered. Sadly it's reported a number of homes were buried in the earthquake's aftermath. Japan has just this week had a Typhoon make landfall causing heavy flooding and wind damage with loss of life. They also had a severe heatwave this Summer.

7.8 South of Fiji, though it's depth was 600+km.
