Just saw this come in. To my friends stationed in Japan.. I hope you all are safe.

6.6, 6.6, 6.4 aftershocks

I haven't heard from my two friends who are stationed in that area since Four AM EST on the day of the quake. I am figuring it is a blackout on the military side.

These three quakes struck me as odd the three numbers, 6.6, 6.6, then a 6.4, in the area they stated a 7.0+ might happen in the next days. I just wonder if it is about to buckle again.

No Tsunami Warnings Given



TOKYO (BNO NEWS) -- A strong earthquake struck off eastern Japan on late Tuesday afternoon, seismologists said, but no tsunami warnings were issued. The 6.3-magnitude earthquake at 5.18 p.m. local time (0718 GMT) was centered about 272 kilometers (169 miles) east of Iwaki on Honshu, the country's main island. It struck about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) deep, making it a shallow earthquake, according to the Japan Meteological Agency (JMA). JMA initially measured the strength of the earthquake at 6.8, but later downgraded the magnitude to 6.3. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) measured the strength of the quake at 6.6 on the Richter scale. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no tsunami threat.

I was thinking these 6.0 - 7.0 were really not a big deal, until I saw this page earlier today. To me, any time there is death involved, it is bad... even if it's 1 person.


earthquake.usgs.gov...

Oh, and I just love how the death tolls are estimated... No way exactly 4,000 or 1,000 or 10,000 people died each time.
