Is this an actual legit site, or what? I really don't know.


Never heard of it before... and the guy in that video has hoaxed other events before. I think someone got their data mixed up.

Look at the data chart from Quake.twiple... make no sense whatsoever

quake.twiple.jp...

Well, maybe your right, I've been looking on every earthquake site I can find and so far nothing. There's one at 5.4M, depth: 25km 13/4/2011 10:08 and that's it. This guy is claiming a media blackout we'll have to wait and see.

Found this Japanese radio station site and their reporting the same thing.

Always look at other sites sources... that site is getting its data from Twiple, so we're back to square one.

Yes I see that, but I've also seen it before where the USGS didn't report on all quakes and some times they report it very late.

OK, i just viewed the cached version
(how the page was before they changed it) of the IRIS site to check if it was at one time there and it appears it was as 7.1

When you hover your mouse over the map it reads below it, so i took a screenshot and need to figure out how to upload.

I can't get the cached version of the list i posted above. to see if it was on that as well. I can find other dates going back but not that

here is the link if others want to check for themselves
it's hard to find the 7.1 because there's so many quakes in that part

Yes I was comparing the first site to report it to another site with the list of 7 quakes that are listed here and some of the times listed are the same www.japanquakemap.com...
So I think because it's an Earthquake Early Announcements system it catches everything before anyone else does.

MSM is covering it now

7.1 Magnitude Earthquake Rocks Japan

Updated: Monday, 11 Apr 2011, 5:49 AM EDT



A strong 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck northeastern Japan on Monday, swaying buildings in the capital Tokyo and leading to a tsunami alert.

The earthquake hit at 5:16pm local time at a depth of 6.2 miles, 102 miles northeast of Tokyo off the northeastern coast of Japan, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Workers were evacuated from the striken Fukushima nuclear plant following the quake, owners Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said.

"The company ordered workers to withdraw and stay in a quake-proof building. We don't know many workers were involved," a spokesman for the operator said.

No irregularities were reported at the plant after the quake.

But still weird that the sensor sites removed/adjusted the readings. Hope you'll upload the screenshot you have as to my instructions given a few posts up...

That depends on wether Fox is relying solely on the same Twiple readings we're looking at. Heck they might even be basing their info on reading this site.
I'd say you should still upload it

USGS still don't have it on their site. So now we know that this quake.twiple.jp... is reliable and legit.

Now what the heck is going on in Japan, since March 11 there's been over 987 earthquakes of significant magnitude. This is not the norm.
