Moments ago, at 4:22am local time, a major 6.8 magnitude quake struck eastern Japan, off the Fukushima coast.
From the USGS:
So far there have been no reports of damage. Those curious can keep track of Fukushima in real time at the live webcast below:
Just when one thought it safe to go near the shore
Loma Prieta (1989) was 6.9.
It’s hard to tell from that map, is this another deep one?
I can’t recall the details of the last one that did major damage off the top of my head..
Here we go again.
Is the ‘ice wall’ intact??
37.069°N 142.364°E depth=13.3km (8.2mi)
Godzilla fault LOL!
Did Godzilla just FART?
After the Typhoon, perhaps...
Then after the Tsunami warning...
THEN after first taking a reading of how hot the surf & sand are (bq).
But I suppose not necessarily in that order.
this one was stronger
I remember being here on Free Republic and watching via link the inland tsunami happening real time on Japanese TV (helicopter TV crew was filming)
It was horrible
This one is 6.9 miles: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/usb000rs50#summary
According to wiki, the 2011 Fukushima was 19 miles deep:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami
FWIW: The wiki page says the one in 2011 was 9.0.
the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center hasn’t updated their page with the warning. losers.
The rolling waves of water and debris are hard to forget,, sad to watch life scrubbed out... Nature is transparent, man claims of be.
I don’t know just breaking right now
Just this week, they’re still reporting leaks.
In the *two* days before the 311 9.0 quake, there were some strong EQs in the same area as the big one, two in the low 7s and I think also a couple in the 6s.
