Looks like the Japanese dodged a bullet as a midday earthquake 90km off the northeast coast triggered a 2 foot sunami. An aftershock was measured at 6.3 - no significant damage reported from either.

The western Pacific rim seems to be pretty active of late, and this quake could have been catastrophic.

Of course there was no damage! It's Japan! They have, like, the latest earthquake-safe technology and policies and building codes and stuff, last I heard!
