This is just breaking and tsunami fears are realized as a 7.4 earthquake strikes just off the Japanese coast. No reports of injuries or damage as of yet but this is a big earthquake.
The news today seems to be getting more dramatic as the day goes on. Maybe it`s just me.
More updates as the news comes in.

I agree seems there is something in the air today. Hope for the best and it's just a little ripple that goes unnoticed.

Ever since I turned on the tube today, there seems to be more and more drama coming out today.
There was a train bomb scare in Italy.
Then someone stunk up the U.N. and they evacuated part of the building.
Now this massive earthquake.

This is the latest update from the source I quoted above:

"Japan's Meteorological Agency has issued a tsunami warning from the quake, which occurred about 80 miles off the Chichi Island in the Pacific Ocean. The offshore quake struck at around 2:20 a.m. local time at the depth of 6.2 miles.

The agency issued a warning for a mild tsunami for nearby islands.

There was no immediate report of any damage or injuries."

Just a note that there's already a thread about this that was started a little earlier (not by me!) in the Fragile Earth forum. It has some more technical details and info.

You can access the thread here.

Regards,

Mike

Nothing will happen, they make up the news and they steal ideas from people.

So far so good, in regards to there not being any injury or damage.
Hopefully no new news will come of this and the good citizens of Japan will remain safe.

What a close call, there must have been some very tense moments for the people in the immediate area.

Seems to be about 6 earthquakes in the mid 5 range,since the 7.4, aftershocks I would say.

Thanks Mike, I was unaware of the other thread in the Fragile Earth forum.
Anyway, I put this one in breaking news as the story had just developed and I didn`t see any other threads on the subject at the time.

Good observation.
I hope the aftershocks don`t do any damage either.

They allow one thread in breaking news in addition to the other forum so it's ok.

The only positive thing I can think of is that the Japanese are probably the best prepared for earthquakes of any country on Earth. But that only allows the damage to be minimized, they still have damage and 7.4 is a strong one.
