Im surprised no one has noticed that Japan has been rockin with earthquakes today. I couldnt even catch them all in the screen shot. It does appear it started with a 7.4 and then it has pretty much stayed in the 5.'s and 4's. Most of it centered around Tokyo-to

Japan Tsunami Warning: Earthquake in Japan Leads to Tsunami Concerns Read more:

Japan tsunami concerns are high today as a strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.4 has struck in the Pacific off southern Japan. Japan's Meteorological Agency has issued a tsunami warning from the quake, which occurred about 130 kilometers (80.6 miles) off the Chichi Island in the Pacific Ocean. The offshore quake struck at around 2:20 a.m. (1720 GMT) at the depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). The agency issued a warning for a mild tsunami for nearby islands. Read more:

That's a lot yes, but unfortunately it is par for the course after a large earthquake, like that 7.4. The area is likely to experience aftershocks for many days and months to come. Please take a look at any other large earthquake, like the ones in Haiti, Chile, and China in recent years, and you will see that this is normal.

Its no where near Tokyo, it was in the Bonin Islands south of Japan.

The Tokyo they refer to is the Prefecture (Province for the Brits and State for the Yanks)

There were no immediate reports of damage or injury but a tsunami of 30 centimetres (one foot) hit the Ogasawara island chain, according to Japanese television broadcasts.

When it comes to earthquakes you should check with the Quake Watch 2010 thread first, the regulars here don't usually bother with making a new thread for every quake.

This is the 27th Mag 7+ this year

BTW RSOE is generally regarded as unreliable, its run by a bunch of ham radio amateurs, its not a Govt or State sponsered organisation.

This is from Sky News
Cumbria Quake - 3.7

Dont get them in the UK very often so that is "big" for here...I recall a 2.8 2/3 years ago that was around 40 miles away from me and the bookcases in the flat wobbled around 2 in the morning - was very strange - and thats a tiddler in the world of quakes...

Hope anyone in these quakes in Japan/Iran or anywhere else that have happened today are OK.

I noticed the 7.4; it happened when I awoke. I was expecting a volcano, but oh well.

I have a good friend in Japan, an MKultra specialist who goes around posing as a melville specialist and as a curator of books. She gave me a lot of things to eat after she....accidentally bumped in to me. Kitaku Kobe was it?

interesting that it happens right after the eclipse last night...I wonder whether the eclipse was possibly a cause for these but who knows it could just be chance...

We're still getting (now small) aftershocks from our 7.1 in September here in Canterbury (New Zealand) - we've had over 4,000 to date... not unusual for heaps of aftershocks after a biggie.

And.. we had NO warning.. no lead up.. nothing... in fact local geologists were completely unaware a fault existed there... go figure! Mother Nature's a mysterious chick!

According to the big earthquake map see site below, The 7.9 in Japan later down graded to a 7.4 started a wobble and set off earthquakes around the globe.

See might be worth watching over the next several days. KMG
