Chances of big quake below Tokyo rising

The possibility of a huge plate-boundary earthquake amplified by simultaneous moves in two or more focal areas beneath Tokyo has been increasing since the Great East Japan Earthquake, according to the University of Tokyo's Earthquake Research Institute.

The institute said that since the March 11 disaster, pressure on the tectonic plates beneath the city has changed and two or more focal areas may move simultaneously, resulting in a massive quake.


Poor Japan. When the University of Tokyo's Earthquake Prediction Center comes out with a story like this, I would think this would be enough to get people moving.

And this news out today: 14 Risky Fault Lines Near Nuclear Plants.

Also today (Thursday) Japan conducted it's first National Quake Drill since the March 11 quake. That story and video here.

I have a bad feeling that all of this must soon add up to a substantive (subtractive?) result. If you are in Japan and cannot get out, please be prepared!

It's tectonic pressure, Tokyo is South to Fukushima. It would common sense due to tilting tectonic plates.
