Neither any evidence to show it, or even a mechanism by which it could've theoretically happened.

Also, lets remember, an earth quake, its not just a tiny peice of dirt being moved, its the plates that make up the earth itself, these are massive energies that we are talking about, I don't even think that humans have a device that outputs that much energy. Maybe the US nuke stockpile, or something like that.

Wow major quake and it musta rocked those islands big time. I don't think that humans could produce a quake like that unless they have a technology that nobody knows about yet. Maybe the aliens are attacking us?

Six foot high waves are nothing to worry about, we get them here all the time.


I pray that you don't encounter a six foot tsunami in your lifetime, because you would be in for a nasty shock.

Just some things coming out today about the effects,

small tsunami's hit Hawaii 1 of up to a meter high, injuring one swimmer and flooding a harbour for a short time,

cnews.canoe.ca...

If anything this is a good test for the alert systems,

Hey guys,

Sorry to join the conversation late, but haven't had a chance to log on since last night.

Anyhoo, I live in Hokkaido, and although this was all over the telly last night (to the extent that they even pre-empted my favorite drama "14 Year Old Mother"), it really wasn't any big deal. NHK even called a few Russians living in the Kurils (or "Northern Territories" as they like to refer to them up here) who said that while a few things fell off the shelves, it wasn't anything to get excited about.

As well, while the first wave hit Nemuro around 9:15PM JST, the video that they showed from the Port of Nemuro between 9:30PM and 11 when I went to bed showed no major waves or boats being sloshed around. The biggest waves I saw all night were actually from the Kushiro River in downtown Kushiro (a #hole of a town that stinks of rotten fish and the local paper plant, and infested with cops who like giving gaijin a hard time, BTW) and that was only a very minor sloshy-slosh.

Looks like we dodged a bit of a bullet this time, and for that I'm truly grateful. I don't notice the little shakers anymore, but have been woken up in the middle of the night several times by a few slow rollers that were most defo annoying, and remember thinking to myself, "Would you please f$%'ing stop already?" *grin*

Now if we can just dispense w/ the tornadoes, typhoons, 2m snowfalls and occasional typhoons, life'll be grand.

Wow, nice to get on the spot reporting from a ATS'er
So here's where you are...?

HokkaidoHillbilly
Location: Hokkaido, Japan



At the most northern part, well it seems the alarm system was more eventful, and effective than the tsunami which is good.

Yup, dat's me. I'm in a little BFE/woop woop town called Tohma, just north of Asahikawa. On the map that you posted, I'm pretty much right at the top edge of the "A"...yes, I live in the belly button of Hokkaido.


After last night I'm glad that I'm at least a good hour's drive from the coast. We still have to put up 6 months of winter, average high temps in Feb. of -10C and about 5 meters of snow a year, but at least it means some pretty sick powder to ride.

last night, we received a level 2 alert from a local agency that a tsunami, the result of an earthquake in Russia(was it Russia or Japan? i think it was from Russia), is coming here in the Philippines that would hit the eastern parts of the country. people living in the coasts on the western part of the country, not realizing that only the eastern part could possibly be hit, panicked and evacuated to higher ground, while the people living in the alert zone were sleeping like the tsunami alert was just a dream.

what if the tsunami came? everybody knows what. but fortunately, it never came and the alert is cancelled.

Fantastic, thank you both for your personal accounts on the happenings, that's what makes this more special,

Glad things worked out fine and that you are both safe,

No aftershocks here.

Then again a) like I mentioned above, I honestly don't notice the little ones any more and b) there's a big ass mountain range between here & the Sea of Okhotsk where the quake hit (according to the news last night, about 400km NE of Hokkaido at a depth of 30km).

Although I live alot further down (more toward Tokyo, not far from Yokohama) I happened to just see the headline on google news in passing last night and froze, then relaxed after a few minutes.

Whew sure puts a scare in ya when you're not used to anything of this nature happening where U live lol

Wow, thank god no loss of life has been reported as of yet!

I admit, the last 4 days I have been feeling minor tremors at night. I live in Alaska, so perhaps there are annicillary effects being produced by cascade-effects that are ongoing...???

I'll need to get a link to the USGS observetory up here...Hell, I oughtta just call em' since it's a local call in Anchorage!

A few more Articles coming out about yesterdays Quake,

Seems that some of the Warning systems failed which is quite worrying and rather lucky that the Tsunami was small,


If a tsunami had hit Guam yesterday morning, some coastline residents might not have had the chance to run for safety.

Part of the problem, said two island mayors, was the inadequacy of the tsunami warning.



www.guampdn.com.../20061117/NEWS01/611170303/1002

Also seems that many had conflicting reports on what to do,
In some ways i'm glad this did not generate a large tsunami or this could have been a lot worse, At least they now have a chance to look in to any Failures.,



Only 74 people evacuated to 64 designated shelters after an evacuation instruction was issued to 17,636 residents of about 7,000 households in Kamaishi, Iwate Prefecture, where a tsunami warning was announced after Wednesday's earthquake near the Chishima Islands

Um...guys? Seriously, the recent aftershocks in the Kurils are nothing to get your panties in a wad over.

First off, Japan is a series of volcanic islands after all. We've got volcanoes all over the place here, both active & dormant, and volcanism and earthquakes sorta go hand in hand...plus there's that whole "ring of fire" around the Pacific that Japan is right on top of.

Take a look here. Yes, it's all in Japanese, but take a peek at the map w/ all the little dots on it. Those're just the quakes that've happened in the last 24 hours. Now look up near the top where it says "Today", "Yesterday" & "Total".

I hope you understand now why a) anybody who's lived here a decent amount of time doesn't notice the little ones and b) there's nothing to panic about. Hell, what would really panic me is if these quakes stopped and all that pressure didn't get released. Now that would be something to mess your jeans over...
