That quake on March 11, 2011 was around mag 9.0 to 9.1. Ie, pushing around 90-odd times the shaking of this event, and cca 900-odd times the energy release. IOW, it would take about 900 of today's quakes to release the energy of that one quake in 2011.

I don't know how others feel - but I take what local media and local agencies are reporting. In particularly it was the Japanese Meteorological Agency that announced the revision to 7.4 Mag, 25km depth, and the mechanism of quake as from a fault.
However, it's always good to have the data from other agencies, differences in measurements, tools used, and well, politics.

Word of advice from a long long time Fukushima watcher for those who didn't follow the original disaster...
NEVER EVER and I do mean NEVER EVER take anything that TEPCO says as the gospel truth...swallow with a huge grain of salt because they are well known liars.
But all in all... looks good considering how bad this could have been.
Things are already way way beyond bad at Fukushima Daiichi........it doesn't need any more assistance in it's effort to poison the planet.

BBC are saying it's likely the worst has hit.
Sorry to post non doom porn propaganda.
I hope the BBC is right, won't get me any doom loving stars if they are though lol
That would be great....I am watching the local live feed and they are saying different. Not that BBC can't be correct, but the local news is what I am interested in.
They are now reporting over 1 meter waves so they are getting larger.
