Preliminary reports are coming in from Japan saying that a large earthquake has struck on the eastern side of the main island of Honshu. Magnitude is unknown currently.
 


Working to find details.

When I was in the Army, I was stationed at Camp Zama
Japan. That place was always rocking. My first earthquake
there happened when I had been in country only 6 weeks.
It was a 6.5. MAN! Talk about a heck of a way to get
introduced to the country!!

I'm looking for details. I was sitting watching SkyNews and it came up saying REUTERS: Large Earthquake Hits Eastern Japan.

Attempting to confirm now.

So far reported today - moderate quakes in Iran and Fiji.
Nothing on Japan, yet.
Depending on the size, there could be a tsunami warning too.

5.8.
Relatively minor for Japan.
Likely nothing to see here.

Indeed, I found it weird that they'd quote Reuters and then drop it like that.

I'll drop this off ATSNN and leave it to confirm or deny.

September 5, 2004.
[UTC] 14:57:18
7.4 (Magnitude)
At 33.216N, 137.061E
110 miles SSW of Hamamatsu, Honshu, Japan at a depth of 6.2 miles

I wonder how that earthquake resistant building technology is coming along? They seem to be having more and more of them.
