A powerful earthquake Tuesday rattled the northern tip of Japan's Honshu island, about 200 miles north of Tokyo.

The 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck off the Yamagata province in northwestern Japan and prompted tsunami advisories. It hit at 10:22 p.m. Tuesday, local time (9:20 a.m. EDT), according to USGS. The Niigata prefecture was hit hardest, according to local news reports.

Early reports said only three people had been injured, including an elderly man who hurt his leg.

A small tsunami, measuring 10 cm (4 inches) was reported following the earthquake . . .

After the big one I asked my brother, 'Is it true there are ancient stones around the coast with the message, 'don't build below this'. He answered, "Yes, and all the major stuff is built below that level".

It doesn't seem to be strong enough to provoke a tsunami.

Very thoughtful of our ancestors to leave such warnings for future generatons.
i hope we we will do the same,and that there are humans in a few hundred years to take heed of our warnings.

Since when do humans listen to sensible advice?

Fascinating link on the hunger stones.

And as the water level sank, river transportation became harder . . .
Major transport routes disrupted. Desperate times.
