Waiting on USGS report-

And also another after shock is hitting too.

Can't be good for the nuclear power plant situation....

Edit: fortunately the seismic intensity level was only a 3 at Fukushima, if you read that chart...But still...that is still aggravating to a bad situation...

It's pretty deep, so hopefully no major shaking or tsunami.

Could it be related?

I certainly have no idea, but the maps sure have been active over the last week or two.

So we have an earthquake (AGAIN) at Fukishima, and a hurricane (ISAAC) coming in on the anniversary of Katrina?

Sounds like mother earth has some big doings for us coming up......

Best of luck to all involved and I pray for each of your families!!

Thanks TA once again for being the earthquake GURU!!!!
