Does Japan use something other than the Richter scale to classify earthquake intensity?
A magnitude 3 tremor on the Richter scale is barely noticeable, in most cases.
Especially in an earthquake-prone (and prepared) country like Japan.
Here in California, a 3 on the Richter scale barely stirs our lattes!
