At the latitude of this earthquake, the Pacific plate moves approximately westwards with respect to the North America plate at a velocity of 83 mm/yr. The Pacific plate thrusts underneath Japan at the Japan Trench, and dips to the west beneath Eurasia. The location, depth, and focal mechanism of the March 11 earthquake are consistent with the event having occurred as thrust faulting associated with subduction along this plate boundary.

Checking in from Hawaii...
Went to the store a couple hours ago, the gas stations were packed... Felt the car shake and confirmed that there was a small earthquake here in Hawaii... It was a little unnerving that the earthquake happened about 2 mins before the hourly tsunami warning sirens that have been going off tonight.
At home now... We are about half a mile from the ocean.
We have decided to stay home.
I feel strangely calm right now even with all of this happening.
