Just saw this on Drudge.
Fingers crossed that it's not a major killer.

Thanks for posting. I hope this one isn't catastrophic like the last.

Considering the 2011 earthquake was a 6.6....this may be huge.

Keeping an eye on it.

It being right on Fukushima does not feel like a good thing. Hoping this is not a pre-quake to something larger about to snap. That would be disastrous, though this one may already be disastrous.

Let's hope to high holy hell this one isn't foretelling something even bigger. The Fukushima (Great Tohoku, I think is it's official name) quake had a couple of BIG foreshocks before all hell broke loose.

10 km is just the default depth for initial reporting.

It will get updated once it has been determined.

Keeping Watch

Seeing Twitter reports of a 3m tsunami that may strike at any moment. All residents are being urged to get to higher ground immediately. I am thinking a 3m tsunami would be a best case with a quake like this and that shallow.

Hate to use wikipedia for a source but:


Fukushima Hamadōri earthquake"[2]) was a potentmagnitude 6.6 Mw intraplate aftershock that occurred at 17:16 JST (08:16 UTC) on 11 April in theHamadōri region of Fukushima, Japan. With a shallow focus of 13 km (8.1 mi), the earthquake was centred inland about 36 km (22 mi) west of Iwaki, causing widespread strong to locally severe shaking. It was one of many aftershocks to follow the 11 March Tōhoku earthquake, and the strongest to have its epicentre located inland.


Source: en.m.wikipedia.org...

This earthquake was 3km shallower and much more powerful. The Seismic scale is not linear and I believe its exponential, unless someone corrects me, so a 7.3 is MUCH stronger than 6.6.

6.6? Where the heck are you getting your info from? It was a 9-er!

From RT:



A powerful 7.3 magnitude earthquake has struck Fukushima Prefecture in Japan, USGS reported. A three meter tsunami wave alert was issued for Fukushima, Nippon reported. The quake struck 67km northeast of Iwaki, a city located in the southern part of the Hamadori coastal region of Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. According to the Japan Meteorological Agency the quake struck at 5:59am JST at a depth of 10km. “Tsunami warnings or advisories are currently in effect,” the agency said.

Seeing some reports now downgrading already to a 6.9 but still a 3m tsunami warning.

Well I obviously linked the wrong earthquake.

The Tohoku was a 9.1 and the most devastating.
en.m.wikipedia.org...

So this one wasn't as bad, but could be a prelude for what is to come. I don't think they need any more disasters...

If this is a prelude of a larger quake coming then they are in serious trouble. I don't recall seeing anything about swarms or anything in this area suggesting a quake of this magnitude in the works so hopefully it is just a big release for the moment and NOT something else coming.
