A strong earthquake struck off the south coast of Japan on Sunday night local time, "jolting Tokyo and wide areas of eastern Japan," the country's Kyodo news agency reported.

The 7.1 earthquake hit 200 miles (320 kilometers) south-southwest of Tokyo at 7:55 p.m. (6:55 a.m. ET), the United States Geological Survey reported.

Its epicenter was 188 miles (303 kilometers) deep, the USGS said.

The Japan Meteorological Agency reported its magnitude as 6.9, Kyodo said.

There were no immediate reports of damage, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not issue a tsunami warning.

Oh my Good God.

Please let them be safe...

People, pull out your prayers and good thoughts, love and light - whatever you use, but send it their way! They’ve suffered enough!

(Referring to this weekend being the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, today the 64th anniversary of the US bombing of Nagasaki)...

This thread is in Fragile Earth, and, the other in Breaking A. News.
Two threads are permitted in this case.

Anyway I'm looking forward to hearing some details and how this ends up.

I so hope it's not another horrible tragedy to add to their list of pains on this day... Or any day...

Just pointing it out as both threads were about the same thing , I just don't see the point of posting the same things in 2 threads when it can be done in 1, that's all.
