Japan's Meteorological Agency on Friday warned the country's 20 volcanoes has become alive due to the massive March 11 earthquake, and a study said earthquake over 9.0-magnitude might hit Japan.
Japan warns of massive earthquake and volcanic explosion after the April 7 earthquake.
The Agency said volcanic explosion occurred after earthquake several times in history and people should maintain vigilance against this tendency.
Meanwhile, quakes of the country's 20 volcanoes occurred more frequently after the massive March 11 earthquake, especially, the Fuji, Hakone, and Aso-San.
Authorities in Japan on Friday announced a research findings which indicated chain earthquake over 9.0-magnitude might hit Japan and its offshore area.

Now I am curious that JMA doesn't have any active volcano WARNINGS to speak of on their site:
On the other hand, they have their hands pretty full, and the site may not have been updated yet.

I'd say run for the hills but apparently the hills are volcanoes. Island nation in a 3 tectonic plate conjunction area with volcanoes and whose language is the source of the word Tsunami. With a nuke plant right on the shore. Doesn't sound good. Considering the circumstances, minus the nuke plant, I wonder what the history of the area is with regards to previous calamities in history such as earthquake strength in recorded history as well as tsunami inshore distance evidence.

TA just out of curiosity, if that subduction zone we're to go. how much sulfur and CO2 would be released into the earths atmosphere? if i'm not mistaken, and i could be. didn't a similar event cause the Permian extinction. and please if i'm wrong correct me i'm not a fear monger just curious.
The fourth and final suggestion that paleontologists have formulated credits the Permian mass extinction as a result of basaltic lava eruptions in Siberia. These volcanic eruptions were large and sent a quantity of sulphates into the atmosphere. Evidence in China supports that these volcanic eruptions may have been silica-rich, and thus explosive, a factor that would have produced large ash clouds around the world. The combination of sulphates in the atmosphere and the ejection of ash clouds may have lowered global climatic conditions. The age of the lava flows has also been dated to the interval in which the Permian mass extinction occurred.

Look at this line of quakes, leading directly to Tokyo:
And you see where that blue one happened. Other small quakes have already happened in and near Tokyo. It just seems a matter of time. Is the SSZ stressing patiently for the JMA to issue the evacuation order?

Funny you should mention selling Detroit, I had the exact same thought a day or so after the Tsunami. It would make a good buffer state against our traditional communistic rivals. You could throw in everything to Flint and Ann Arbor as well as most of Toledo, IMO.
Seriously though I hate to go off topic, but I just saw that they are going to try an encase one of the reactors in wet cement. Are they admitting they had a complete meltdown, and not just a "partial" meltdown? Does anyone other than me think they are grasping at straws? I hate to kick such decent people when they are down, but I am very troubled with how this is being handled.
The volcano notice is very interesting. Does anyone feel that the Eastern Pac rim is having way more earthquakes than before, and the scientific community saying that this is all just in our head is wrong. I mean, Indonesia, China, New Zealand, now Japan. BTW the Earth's magnetic pole is also shifting faster than any time in recorded history. Coincidence?
