I'm sure your nerves have to be frayed beyond the last end Sunny. I did not mean to belittle what you (or anyone in your country) are currently and have continued to go through in any way whatsoever.

6.5 is indeed a substantial quake, and many but the best-engineered buildings would succumb to further deterioration.

I only wanted to put the current tsunami (after all, in people's minds it's the wave that did the greatest majority of the destruction) in perspective.

I am glad to see you have not abandoned these forums all together and know that not all Americans are uncaring louts who cannot see beyond their own gut...

I thought when it hit that perhaps someone else would put it up here, but as they didnt thought it would be best I did, so those who watch those nuke plants could keep an eye out.

Im sure we all are scared of what could happen if a tsunami did hit those again, or an earthquake brought it all tumbling down.

I was just trying to do my bit. I have no idea why I bother.

People who have never had to grab their kids for the umpteenth time and get them under a table, while wondering if the quake is going to stop, or get worse, if a tsunami is going to knock down Fukushima and nuke us all have no right to sound so dismissive of the danger or the stresses people in Japan are living under. Myself included.

That looks to me like they've basically cancelled the tsunami.

We love, love, LOVE Japan around here.
And I probably worry about it all more than I should. The main stream news never covers it, and I think my friends think I am insane.

We don't have earthquakes where I live - one, once, and that was a really weird thing - but we have tornadoes.
I think we know what it's like to have to run for cover.

Ild swap with you any day of the week, ghetto or whatever. Anything is better than living in the shadow of nuclear meltdown and with quakes happening so regularly. Be grateful you are an American, and dont try and pretend you are disadvantaged,. You are one of the luckiest people in the world to live where you do.

Thanks Summer, but as I understand it, a 6.2 earthquake at such a depth as over 400km shouldn't cause tsunamis. I could be wrong though.

If I were in Japan, I'd leave if I could.
That Fukushima stuff scares the debil out of me.
It scares me being half a world away. I might try to swim for it actually. It horrifies me.

Im glad that Japan's reputation has not been totally destroyed Hadriana, and that there are some people who still care outside of Japan.

Right, it seems to be over for now. So Ill disappear again!

Well that's the stuff I don't know about. I know how much 50cm is. How far inland that translates too though, and how depth, strength and type of earthquake affects it though, I have no idea.

Ed, that flipping quake just shook me, and my apartment, and sent me pushing my kids under the table. I was not 'looking out', I didnt need to, it just scared the daylights out of me since I live in an area that just got shook.

Well, I believe the 50cm warning (which is now cancelled) was given from the 6.5 that occured at the depth of 39km. The other quake that happened earlier in the Fiji region was a 6.2, but because it was so deep (over 400km), I don't think it would produce a tsunami. That's over 200 miles deep.

Good grief. Can't you give it a rest, just for a minute? Nobody hates you, except maybe your constant attacking people who mean you no harm whatsoever. You're as prickly as a porcupine.

Anyhow, glad everyone is well! Given any more thought to leaving Japan or do you still believe that the radiation is nothing to worry about?

Does anyone have any damage reports yet?

Stay safe Sunny! My thoughts are with you.

Time for me to get some sleep. I'll look for updates when I awake.

Good night all.
