Quake jolts northern Japan


www.reuters.com

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.2 jolted northern Japan on Sunday, the Japan Meteorological agency said.
The focus of the tremor was 40 km (25 miles) below sea level off the east coast of Fukushima prefecture, on Japan's main island of Honshu, about 240 km (150 miles) northeast of Tokyo, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

No tsunami warning was issued and there were no early reports of damage. Earthquakes are common in Japan, one of the world's most seismically active areas. The country accounts for about 20 percent of the world's earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater

Wow as if we don't have enough natural disasters going on at the moment, now there is seismic activity again in Japan. the ring of fire seems to be acting up.

Now hopefully there isn't a tsunami after this or after shocks. I need to search for relative articles and videos if there is. More to come.

The tsunami warning has been downgraded supposedly.

Earthquakes are a regular occurance in japan always have been. Most building are designed to minimise damage from earthquakes. The japanese are also prepared and know how to handle earthquakes as they happen

Thanks for posting. Yes I am aware of the Japan quakes. Now What is worry some is: could the quake cause issues in California? How about in other parts of the world?

This quake will not be causing any issues in California, and I'm pretty sure that it won't cause anything other than some aftershocks that will only affect the same area.

There's some areas on the planet that have been unaffected so far by larger quakes, mainly New Zealand, and the U.S. West Coast. There have been a lot of little ones in and around those areas, but not much in the way of Big stuff yet.

I'm waiting for it/them.

I find it intruiging how many natural disasters, mainly earthquakes, have struck various parts of the world lately. I wonder if there is some kind of dynamic change occuring to the tectonic plates?

A very good question!

Maybe the Earth is waking up and stirring a bit?

This is the first page of Quake Watch 2010 which has some great info to mill over. The OP also links back to the previous years.

Great info in the what's going on at yellowstone? thread.

Lots of details, links and such.

Peace.

I was saying since all this is happening, I am no geophysicist, I just hope nothing more disasters come anywhere, in USA, or the world!
