6.8 magnitude earthquake strikes off Fukushima coast, tsunami warning issued



A 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Japan, with its epicenter located some 129 kilometers from the city of Namie in Fukishima prefecture, US Geological Survey reported.

The quake was centered at a depth of about 10km, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA).

Tsunami advisories have been issued for the Fukushima prefecture, as well as for nearby Iwate and Miyagi prefectures.



The city of Namie is located in the southern part of the Hamadori coastal region of Fukushima prefecture.

The epicenter was also located 131km away from the city of Iwaki.

A marine threat has also been issued, as strong currents are expected to continue. JMA ordered residents to “get out of the water and leave the coast immediately.”

“Do not get in the sea or approach coasts until the advisory is cleared,” the agency said in a statement.

Though there may be slight sea-level change in coastal regions, no tsunami damage is expected, JMA added.

oh geez...wicked...I just watched a movie called The Impossible about some Australians who survived the big one, they were in Thailand...it's horrifying when you see the debris and bodies in the water and the speed it swirls at.

Oh, don't worry, be happy. Radiation contaminated fish are good for you. Conservatives say it is so.

It's far better for Mother Gaia than the eeeeeevil oil that you grudgingly use every day.

At least thank the creator for that

Clearly another demonstration of continued environmental decline caused by climate change. It was the weight of all that extra CO2 in the atmosphere that caused it.
