They will play down the numbers, they lie on a regular basis.
Waiting to hear more.
Even if the epicenter wasn't at Fukushima, I can still see this causing problems. I was in Tokyo when the Fukushima incident occurred, and there was still a lot of shaking and buildings swaying. If simply moving rods is supposed to be dangerous, I wouldn't imagine shaking them around is the best thing.
I'm not expecting anything major, but I think it's worth keeping an eye on for sure.
