6.8 earthquake shakes Tokyo!


www.cnn.com

TOKYO, Japan (AP) -- A strong earthquake struck off the coast of Japan early Thursday, the national Meteorological Agency said, waking up people 100 miles away in Tokyo.

"Since it was a very large-scale earthquake, we would expect to see some modest aftershocks," he said.

Japan is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world because it sits atop four tectonic plates. Tokyo has not been hit by a major quake since 1923, when 140,000 people died in the Great Kanto Earthquake.

Lets hope everyone is alright. I'm sure we will see alot more "natural" disasters for months to come. Its only a matter of time before the "big one" hits. It'll make the 1556 earthquake that killed 830,000 Chinese a walk in the park.
