If the depth is 29 miles, there may be no tsunami, but I wouldn't risk it. ANYONE reading this in that area, you need to get to higher ground, now.

Well I guess this S*** is for real huh....

Poor Japan....they are getting hit hard this year and were only 4 months in....


All these earthquakes are a bit alarming considering the "size" and consistency. I bet people along the fault lines are starting to feel pretty uneasy and rightfully so. I know I would be itching to get out of dodge with all the fault like activity this year. Its just a matter of time....

Oh no...not again. When are they going to get a break. I hope this doesn't cause too much destruction...all I can picture is the nuclear plants shaking around when they already have enough cracks and leaks going on.

Yeah, it just popped up on my Associated Press app. I can't imagine the devastation, if they get hit by another tsunami. Keeping an eye on this...

MSNBC just had a report...no tsunami, not the right kind of quake...but the magnitude has been raised to 7.5, reports of damage still trying to be assessed.
