At the edge of Aneyoshi, a small village on Japan’s northeastern coast, a 10-foot-tall stone tablet stands, carved with a dire warning to locals."High dwellings are the peace and harmony of our descendants," the rock slab says. "Remember the calamity of the great tsunamis. Do not build any homes below this point."
While the Aneyoshi tablet might be the most straightforward, so-called “tsunami stones” dot Japan’s coastline, warning the carvers’ descendants to seek high ground after earthquakes in case they foreshadow destructive waves.

They were saying the 6.4 the other day was most likely a foreshock and a big one was coming let's hope this is the big one and that it isn't yet another foreshock because at 7.4 and if it is only a foreshock then the big one will be huge
The aftershocks could hamper rescue efforts as emergency workers attempt to pull people trapped in the rubble. TV Asahi showed crews crawling over a collapsed roof in an attempt to find an elderly couple.

It's been revised to a 7.4. Wow... Tsunami warning. I pray they are able to get to higher ground. Those poor people!
I think there's going to be another quake that's even bigger soon.
