Japan sinking? We have heard that since Edgar Cayce told us his prediction... well it seems parts of it ARE indeed sinking


Since the March 11 Quake, the land has been subsiding



Gov warns of risk from quake-caused subsidence

In the image below the one on the left is Mar 11th and the one on the right is current. The blue areas are now below sea level





Japan's land ministry has found that areas of land below-sea-level in the Sendai plain, Miyagi Prefecture, have increased 5-fold after the March 11th earthquake.

It warns that these areas are highly vulnerable to flooding from high tides and typhoons.

The ministry on Thursday released the findings of its aerial probe using an ultra-sensitive, laser-equipped camera to check subsidence across the Sendai plain.

The areas below sea level, shown in blue on the released map, spanned 16 square kilometers.

Before the quake, the plain had only 3 square kilometers of such low-lying areas.

The map also shows, in green, areas lying at full-tide levels. The amount of such areas has increased to 56 square kilometers from the pre-disaster total of 32 square kilometers.

Colored yellow are areas lying below the highest-ever tide level recorded in 1980. These areas have grown to 111 square kilometers from the pre-quake total of 83 square kilometers.

Many river banks and seawalls were damaged by the disaster. The ministry is calling on residents in these areas to be on the alert, and is sandbagging the broken banks.

I suppose I should point out that with all that subsidence they are even more vulnerable to another tsunami too, from a large aftershock. But fortunately, things do appear to be quieting down. The bigger quakes are much more infrequent now, but small shocks in the 3 to 4 range still persist. Keep fingers crossed and maybe the ominous warnings for Tokyo will be mistaken.

Correction: On March 11th, the land subsided. It isn't an ongoing process.

Incorrect the measurements have changed thrice. Ongoing is a strange word, can we relate it to processes. Let's try : measurement status at interval periods equals " ongoing " data for analysis . Any periodic data from one point creates only a point , from two points creates a 'slope' and from multiple points a curve or linear average, so your analysis incorporates how many points, as a starting place?

Measurements of a past event have changed, as fresh data have been collected and more precise measurements technology can be used.

None of the new data that I'm aware of suggests that the land continues to sink.

There are at least two recent data points I can find . And three I if look into older data (which obviously is important). SUPPORT YOUR ARGUMENT IS ALL i ASK ,

The 60 trillion yen reported paid out could have evacuated them, donated land and Yurts. Canada is huge with a miniscule population as well.

There is no excuse and the earthquake risk is huge. And the radiation is huge.


Thanks but no thanks. We have plenty of overpopulation issues here in Canada already! Canada may be big, but with the insane wave of over-immigration in recent decades, our infrastructure is already at breaking point!
Where are you? Maybe you should take them! lol!

As far as I know the land subsided only at the time of the March 11 earthquake, so I am also curious to know why you think the land is continuing to subside.

My premonitions tell me that parts of Japan are sinking a bit.
Also, even though it has quieted down, Japan is still in danger.
Will it be enough to make a major difference in our lifetime?

Yep no biggie right now... so they can go back to worrying about the fallout instead

I still believe the risk to be high- despite the fact that another big one on the SSZ has not hit yet. For the next weeks and months ahead, I still estimate 40 to 50% chance, based on the activity directly around the SSZ. If they make it to August without one, I will breathe a sigh of relief for Tokyo.

Zorgon, if Im not mistaken you show a 4.2 EQ on your map.
Though, it seems there was a 6.1 yesterday. Out in the sea but close to the fault line? Im not an expert..what do you think?

Yeah the 6.1 is still on the other plate so its an aftershock. This one is on the plate that hasn't gone yet, the one that this thread is about

I believe he was highlighting this quake due to its location, south of the juncture on the oposing plate. I have noticed a few south of Japan now, on opposite sides of the plate. I am not familiar enough though with the activity in that area to make a comment as to whether it is unusuall....just given the recent history it is concerning to me.

ETA: HA! I see Zorgan and I were posting at the same time. At least I got it right.

Not only that but Kan is also concerned. Look at THIS

Kan calls for halt of Hamaoka nuclear plant


Prime Minister Naoto Kan has asked a utility firm in central Japan to halt operations of all active reactors at the Hamaoka nuclear power plant, due to the risk of
earthquakes.

Kan told a hastily arranged news conference on Friday evening that he made the decision in the wake of the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The prime minister said he asked Chubu Electric Power Company that operates the Hamaoka plant to halt reactors No.4 and No.5, and not to restart reactor No.3,
which is now offline for regular inspections.

The plant in Shizuoka Prefecture has 5 reactors, but units No.1 and 2 are permanently shut down for decommissioning.

The Hamaoka complex is known to sit directly above the projected focus of the Tokai Earthquake that experts have long warned of. Kan said that a science ministry panel on earthquake research has projected an 87-percent possibility of a magnitude-8-class earthquake hitting the region within 30 years.

He said that considering the unique location of the Hamaoka plant, the operator must draw up and implement mid-to-long-term plans to ensure the reactors can withstand the projected Tokai Earthquake. Kan also said that until such plans are implemented, all the reactors should remain out of operation.

Chubu Electric has declined to respond immediately to the prime minister's request. But Kan said he will try hard to win the company's understanding.

The prime minister added that his government will do its utmost to ensure the stoppage of the reactors does not seriously affect power supplies in Chubu Electric's service areas.

Kan said that although power shortages might occur when demand surges in the summer, he is confident that with the cooperation and understanding of the public, the nation can overcome such difficulties.

Scary!!! Either he knows some other major quake is imminent or he finally admits to the fact that Hamaoka is an old plant, that needs restructuring (from what Ive read....can't really find sources right here right now)....

Or maybe he's just being prudent....which could be interpreted as a wise move...

Here is another shutdown ordered..

Japan Kept Secret on Fukushima Radiation Measurements


The Japanese government admitted it kept in secret at least 5000 radiation radiation measurements and assessments after the nuclear event which struck the Fukushima Daiichi NPP in March. This was done in order not to induce panic in the population, a representative of the staff dealing with the nuclear emergency told ITAR-TASS.

Hamaoka plant sits in Tokai quake focal zone





The Hamaoka nuclear power plant is located above the projected focus of a magnitude-8-class earthquake that could strike Shizuoka Prefecture.

Seismologists have long been warning that the likely Tokai earthquake could occur any time.

They say massive earthquakes have hit the region every 100 to 150 years, but no major quake has occurred there since the one that struck in the 19th century.

The government predicts that the focus would stretch inland from the southern edge of Yamanashi Prefecture to the central and western parts of Shizuoka Prefecture, and to the prefecture's Pacific coastal area as well.

All areas in Shizuoka would feel a jolt with an intensity of 6-minus to the maximum 7 on the Japanese scale of 0 to 7.

It also projects that a major tsunami of more than 5 meters will strike the coastal area and in some places, the waves could top 10 meters.
