It's very normal.

Nothing to worry about at all.

NHK reporting quake was 20 kilometers deep, 67 miles offshore Iwaki Prefecture....how long would it take to arrive if there is one?

An hour or less?

I'm listening to the live NHK news.

They are warning people to get to high ground just in case.

Their government agency responsible for such things issued the advisory.

CNN just did a brief (very) announcement about EQ, saying tsunami advisory is an effect.

These people need a break.

Man-Made or Mother Nature....

Just a break.

Magnitude: 6.7
DateTime: Wednesday June 22 2011, 21:50:54 UTC
Region: near the east coast of Honshu, Japan
Depth: 20 km

It could be a glitch again but I'll leave this in case it isn't. Two different times and two different depths.

Well...in all honesty, this sort of earthquake is to be expected. 6.7 is about 200 times less powerful than the big one of March 11 (in addition to being at about the same location), and many of this sort have occurred since then. It's hardly anything to get excited about.

Here is the Tsunami info

AN EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED WITH THESE PRELIMINARY PARAMETERS
REPORTED BY THE JAPAN METEOROLOGICAL AGENCY.

ORIGIN TIME - 2150Z 22 JUN 2011
COORDINATES - 39.9 NORTH 142.5 EAST
DEPTH - 20 KM
LOCATION - NEAR EAST COAST OF HONSHU JAPAN
MAGNITUDE - 6.7

EVALUATION

NO DESTRUCTIVE WIDESPREAD TSUNAMI THREAT EXISTS BASED ON
HISTORICAL EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI DATA.

HOWEVER - EARTHQUAKES OF THIS SIZE SOMETIMES GENERATE LOCAL
TSUNAMIS THAT CAN BE DESTRUCTIVE ALONG COASTS LOCATED WITHIN
A HUNDRED KILOMETERS OF THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER. AUTHORITIES
IN THE REGION OF THE EPICENTER SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS
POSSIBILITY AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION.

THIS WILL BE THE ONLY BULLETIN ISSUED FOR THIS EVENT UNLESS
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE.

THE JAPAN METEOROLOGICAL AGENCY MAY ALSO ISSUE TSUNAMI MESSAGES
FOR THIS EVENT TO COUNTRIES IN THE NORTHWEST PACIFIC AND SOUTH
CHINA SEA REGION. IN CASE OF CONFLICTING INFORMATION... THE
MORE CONSERVATIVE INFORMATION SHOULD BE USED FOR SAFETY.

Funny, I check USGS whenever I use my PC and when I first saw the EQ in Japan it was showing 5.2 km deep (yes that is a five point two). You are now saying 20km deep. I just checked again and now it is 32km deep. I am starting to wonder whether or not to trust usgs in their depth "predictions"

ONE 6.7, not two. If you click on the link and click 'see last quake' it will take you back to the one before.


NHK Japan is showing a warning with the effected area of coastline - far to the north of where the March tsunami hit. Waves of 0.5 metres expected. I dont think it has hit yet. Ill go back to the news now.

Quake not so bad in Tokyo, just woke us up.

Two earthquakes were listed temporarily on USGS.
It happens every once in a while.
