6.8 east of Honshu.
I bet my old army unit felt that at Camp Zama.
That was an up/down rocker for sure!

Shallow quake too.....says it was only 6.2 miles for depth....



The USGS said via its website that the quake hit 94 miles from Namie and Iwaki, 103 miles from Kitaibaraki, and 106 from Takahagi. The quake was also positioned about 185 miles from Tokyo.

The agency said the earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.8 on the Richter scale.

It had a depth of 6.2 miles.

Marine threat is in place.
Get out of the water and leave the coast immediately.
As the strong current will continue, do not get in the sea or approach coasts until the advisory is cleared.


Though there may be slight sea-level change in coastal regions, no tsunami damage is expected.

Hopefully it's no more of an issue than that.

This things scares the bejesus out of me. Every time this happens its like holding your breath. Maybe ignorance is bliss in this situation but it's impossible to not look at the same time.

Mother nature strikes back after our failing attempts to fix previous disaster.

Uh Oh!

Does this mean they will spill *(dump)* thousands of gallons of radioactive waste then blame it on "mother nature" ?

Well...it triggered the early warning system which means a buoy of some sort rose high enough as to set it off....guess we will find out soon enough. A shallow EQ I think makes for a larger wave correct? And this quake was shallow.

That was my impression looking at the numbers as well, but I don't know enough to call shenanigans on the report; understating the danger of something like this, especially in the early hours of the morning, seems like a very bad idea though so I can't imagine why they would. Hopefully someone can find their way in here and drop some concrete knowledge.

According to the 2011 quake. ( fukashima ) the depth was 8 miles. 22 miles out.

Yeah, but Fukashima was hundreds of times stronger, nearly a 9.

Yes, this one was larger, about the same depth but occurred off the coast, not inland like the 2011. I would suspect we will hear about a tsunami, if one hits, within the hour.

Tens of thousands of times stronger due to the logarithmic scale of magnitudes.

Regardless, 6.8 is substantial whereas what's left of Fukushima Daiichi is much less so.

I'd check the fukushima part 2 thread for a video of the livestream soon.
