I predict there will be an F3 tornado in the midwest in the next month.

I live in Tokyo. There has been talk of a major earthquake striking directly under Tokyo/Tokyo bay for the last few months. According to Tokyo University, there is a 70% chance within 4 years.
Last night after the two earthquakes, the JMA gave an eerie announcement to "take caution for the next week"
www.youtube.com... This is a video of them saying it. Sorry, but it's only in Japanese.
Last night the news also interviewed several people, most claiming they felt shaking of a vertical motion, not horizontal. This is very dangerous. The interviews were cut from the morning news.
Recently, they have also announced exactly where will shake the hardest, which areas are at risk for tsunami, that the fault line is 10km more shallow than previously thought, and emergency routes. Why would they release this kind of information suddenly, now?
Thousands of tiny tiny earthquakes have been happening underneath Tokyo since 3.11 which has lead seismologists to this conclusion. Now most larger home center/department stores have big earthquake preparedness sections that were never there through last year and definitely not before 3.11 except for during September, Japan's earthquake preparedness month.
It is easy to say that Tokyo will be struck with the "big one" sooner than later, just by reading between the lines.

Just for info, I have been listening to the chat after the 5.2 this evening. Many people are telling of a Brontide sound just before this hit. They are now too scared to sleep. They had 4 warnings in one hour.

It is their early warning system, it beeps when a quake is coming in.
The sound heard was like deep thunder. It must be horrible for them if they have been told a big quake is coming.
