The first thing that stands out, is the '34', even present in the post time.
4/14/16 = 4+14+16 = 34
Ueki, Japan = 3+5+2+9+1+1+7+1+5 = 34
'34' is a Fibonacci Number, so is '144'. Today's date, April 14, can be written 14/4, a lot like '144'.
Earthquake = 5+1+9+2+8+8+3+1+2+5 = 44
Forty-Four = 6+15+18+20+25+6+15+21+18 = 144
Japan seems to be the nation to have more earthquakes 'by the numbers' than any other, at least in the time I've been keeping track.
