A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan’s Fukushima prefecture on Saturday, violently shaking the cities on the eastern seaboard and prompting fears of a tsunami.

It was also registered as the highest possible on the local Japan Meteorological Agency Seismic Intensity Scale. A 7 quake in Japan indicates a violent, heavy earthquake which can shake people and objects around, destroy buildings, and crack the ground.

Is the Fukushima plant still leaking? Hopefully this new earthquake didn't just cause even more problems.

It's not leaking, however, there is controlled discharge from the subdrain and groundwater drain systems. It's the solid waste and contaminated soil that, in my opinion, would be the most issue but only if a tsunami hits. There is not a tsunami warning right now.

I just keep telling myself it's Japan they're prepared for
events like this. Then those thoughts are crushed by the
palm of my hand slapping my forehead when I think Fukushima.

Not welcome news at all.

7.1 is fairly common in Japanese history.
No reports on the contaminated water stored in tanks from the 2011 meltdown event.

Hope its just spilled liquor.

If you zoom in on the power plant you will see all of the massive amounts of contaminated storage around that facility. If another tsunami hit that place, massive amounts of contaminated materials would pour out into the ocean... The contamination would probably be worse than the original event.

Less than a month until the ten year anniversary of Fukushima 9.0. There was a 7.3 foreshock two days before that one. Something is definitely perking lately. More activity than usual in the last few days of the amount of 6+ quakes.

Yeah they have thousands of huge plastic bags containing contaminated top soil from the area.
If a tsunami hit those that would be a huge problem for Japan.

Problem is,there is nowhere to put the stuff,so it will remain(and get added to)until either someone comes up with a practical way to get rid of it or make it safe somehow.

This sadly happens at many nuclear facilities even when they haven't had an accident.

We should have gone with Thorium,but everyone was hoodwinked into believeing the plutonium breeder reactors were the only way to go..But the only reason for those was so that everyone could secretly make nuclear bombs,rather than have clean energy.

Just woke up to the news this morning. I saw it said 6x . I didn't see any 7.
Got the end of the news but seems like it took some structural damage around town.
Maybe some others here that live also in Japan can tune in with an update.
