TOKYO - Thousands of residents fled to higher ground after an 8.3 magnitude earthquake struck off Japan‘s northern coast in the Pacific on Saturday, setting off tsunami warnings.
A tsunami warning also was issued for Alaska‘s western Aleutian islands, prompting some residents to evacuate, and a tsunami watch was issued for Hawaii. Both were later canceled.
But the largest wave reported was a 16-inch tidal swell that twice hit the shores of Chichi-jima, a Pacific island 620 miles south of Tokyo, more than three hours after the quake.

Oh and what do you mean by this exactly?
You can chart the progress of the Ring of Fire quakes moving from Fiji area north and then east over to Alaska.

According to RSOE there has been 50... yes 50 quakes in the exact same spot in the past 24 hours. IS THAT NORMAL??!?!
Where does it say 50? And USGS says there have been 29 there. I have no idea how many aftershocks is considered normal.
