Edgar Cayce did say Japan would fall into the ocean......

Mybe that faultline south of Japan, or on the southside of Japan is going to pop.

At what point do they stop calling them 'aftershocks' & start calling them earthquakes again?


VERY good question, imho.

Unfortunately, I think at least part of Japan "disappearing" is a good possibility. ...Not to mention the nuclear contamination pretty much destroying what's left of the nation.

There are more quakes, many shallow and near Fukushima - but we're getting some reports.

Japan nuclear crisis still a serious concern


TOKYO – Tokyo residents were warned not to give babies tap water because of radiation leaking from a nuclear plant…

The U.N. atomic agency said there had been some positive developments at the Fukushima nuclear plant 250 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo but the overall situation remained serious. Some countries have started blocking imports of produce from Japan, fearful of radiation contamination.

...The plant, battered by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that has left 23,000 people dead or missing, has still not been brought under control, and workers were forced away from the complex when black smoke began rising from one of its six reactors.

"… the overall situation remains of serious concern," Graham Andrew, a senior official of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told a news conference.

Tokyo authorities said on Wednesday that water at a purification plant for the capital of 13 million people had 210 becquerels of radioactive iodine - more than twice the safety level for infants.

...The Japan disaster has dealt a blow to the nuclear power industry around the world. Italy became the latest nation to re-assess its program, announcing a one-year moratorium on site selection and building of plants.

…There are reports that dozens of survivors, mostly elderly, have died in hospitals and evacuation centers from a lack of proper treatment, or simply because of the cold.

Me and a friend of mine, who is a seismologist, have studied various pieces of data concerning the ongoing quakes. He thought that based on the data there could be a another powerful quake very soon followed by an encroaching mass approaching the shore. He showed me all of the data he had used to put 1 and 2 together and I had to agree he was probably right.We knew what would happen very soon and what the Japanese people could expect coming ashore........ Gowdziwah.....!!

I would not be taking too much notice about an article saying that the EU demands to know what the US are doing with HAARP when the eejits have an even bigger one themselves!! (Norway)

That reports smacks of forgery to me.

You are right and you are not right!

Yes there will probably be another big one within a month or so. Probably around an 8. The earthquakes may migrate towards the shore, although I actually doubt that, but if they do then they will be getting deeper and deeper as they will follow the subducting slab.

There are two possibilities. The normal definition of aftershocks is earthquakes that occur after a big earthquake that are generally up to Magnitude 1.5 lower than the main shock, and that occur in greater frequency than the normal levels of activity for the area.

So, for example if an area normally has a few mag 4 quakes - say 3 a week, then if it has a bigger one - a 7 say, everything after that will be called an aftershock until it settles back to 3 or 4 mag 4 quakes a week. That can take months or even years and very occasionally decades.

Now if after that 7 there was another 7+ say a 7.5 then if it was close to the 7 that would become the main shock and the 7 would become a foreshock. This was the case in Japan which kicked off with a 7.2.

It also may be counted a a separate quake depending on time and distant from the first one,

Sorry man, was actually doing a poor buildup for a Godzilla joke. Nuclear reactor, quakes at the reactor. Nudge nudge... But I don't mean to be insensitive.

The March 2 near-miss asteroid was in 2009. It could not have had anything to do with the earthquakes.

I was referring to 2011 EB74 on Mar 16 - small, only 18m but passing at 0.9 LD.



Ed. to ADD - sorry my bad. Seems I grabbed that one on the fly. Must stop posting whilst asleep!

Posturing and credential waving aside, the point of this thread is:

Japan's already-damaged nuclear reactors are taking an ongoing beating. Especially the Fukushima plant. Some of the new quakes' aka aftershocks' epicenters are right there - and they are very shallow!

...so already damaged reactors are being stressed, pelted and battered again and again.

...Don't try and tell me that the cracks and fractures are not getting worse, fast. Or that the radiation leaks aren't compounded.

Another mag 6.5, and several almost right at the Fukushima plant (37N, 140E), 2 very shallow. I don't think those reactors can take much more battering.
