Well, its happening like many of you here have been predicting. A string of earthquakes does seem to be appearing along the "ring of fire " and
because of the volcanic activity its most likely that these earthquakes are a result of it.
From this morning news, all I seen was water pipes broken and flooding in the streets. The railroad system there may have been shut down, not sure if
its in operation this morning though. Lots of shaking. I haven't seen any structural damage yet.
An earthquake of 5.9 magnitude struck Japan's northwestern Chiba Prefecture, which lies east of the capital Tokyo, on Thursday evening, according to
Japan Meteorological Agency first registered the magnitude as 6.1, with an initial depth of 80 kilometers (50 miles). The earthquake has since been
updated to a 5.9 magnitude with a depth of 62 kilometers (38.5 miles), according to the USGS.
Japan's public broadcaster NHK reported several minor injuries in the Chiba Prefecture.
No abnormalities have been detected at nuclear facilities following the earthquake, Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said during an
emergency press conference. One is located in the nearby Ibaraki Prefecture.
Not affected by this quake where we live, but hope these quakes don't start moving south. I also think if we start seeing quakes in Hokkaido, we may
start seeing Mt. Fujii trembling in the future. It did explode back in December of 1707, so anything is possible it seems like these days.
Mostly I'm worried about the nuclear power plants along the ocean. I wish the govt. would just close them down. We are seeing a lot of new solar
panels being put up around the country though.
