Thank you for the update - is this a populated area I wonder. Will keep an eye out for alerts on a tsunami.

So far this year, earthquakes are up 133 % !! The Gulf spill, climate change, weather patterns transorming into extreme weather patterns...
And there's still people around me going..."all's cool"..."it's life as usual"..."it's normal, always been, always will be"...
I'm starting to believe that our human race will need something so terrible to happen, something that will make EVERYONE s&*t their pants, in order to wake up and figure that MAYBE we're doing something wrong...and change.

Poster,.. you should already know that somebody will have it posted on Quakewatch.
Significant or particularly destructive quakes can of course also be reported as individual threads.

This being a 6.4 offshore of Japan, with the potential for a tsunami and the latest in a series of moderate to strong quakes in the area I thought this event deserved it's own thread.
