A pretty big quake just hit again, to be expected, of course... but this one felt larger than the one a couple of days ago. If the region is the same NE coast), then it must have been about 7.5 or more..

I am ok.. was holding on to my monitor so it wouldn't fall off the desk again..

Felt pretty bad in West Tokyo (Kichijoji). NHK looks like it’s saying 6.0 off Fukushima. Not sure about that.

NHK is calling it as 7.1 off of Fukushima. Let’s get some prayers up on the reactors!!!

From the explanation I got a couple of days ago, I am sure it was another aftershock..

Yep, that was a bad one. One has no choice but to get very tough mentally after all of this, one month of this. Either that or get out.

They have told the workers at Fukushima TEPCO nuke plant to get out. As expected. Nobody can work in such an environment under such shaking conditions. And I am sure it was MUCH WORSE UP THERE, than far away from here in Kanto. 5:16 7.1 MAGNITUDE. Japanese Shindo 6 (Fukushima, Ibaraki, Chiba, all those area). Tsunami reports not apparant yet. Probably not that much to generate big waves. Shinkansen (bullet trains) now working again. Life goes on..... ;-) 4:33 a.m. Eastern Monday -- AiT

Tsunami warning now for coastal area(s), but nothing like one month ago today. Radio telling people to get to high ground. Ibaraki Prefecture. No information when it will hit. I expect maybe only one meter (3 feet) tall. Lets hope that is all.

Most if not all the nuke plants are checking in with no reports out of the ordinary. But to be careful, they are ordering workers out of the Fukushima Number 1 plan work (they were working on cooling water). 6:20 p.m. wave will arrive (not sure where). 6:40 p.m. wave will arrive in Sendai.

About half the distance from the original 8.9 epicenter to the volcano Mt Fuji.

For me, you can't STAND it and DETEST it, (this over and over and over business for almost a month now) and yet, oddly enough, you get used to it on the other hand and get toughened to it and even humor creeps in after a while. Weird.

I guess that is how they felt in Sarajevo after awhile just trying to go out shopping. In fact, what CAN you do about it -- except get right back to work after checking with loved ones, colleagues, the gas meter, elevators, etc. etc.

I sure hope CNN does not blow it out of proportion again and scare everyone back in the USA over it.

Same here. I have become hypersensitive to them and it often feels like the ground is moving even when it isn’t. I have a coat hanger suspended from a hook over my computer so I can check.

My sense of humor has become decidedly warped. (Note tagline). I figure if I don’t laugh I’ll freak.

I think every time one of these hit, another 500 foreigners decide that it’s the last straw and starts making plans to leave. I can’t. Won’t. I won’t abandon my wife and she won’t abandon her mother.

I had the TV on SkyNews, and the computer on freerepublic, looking for the real first hand accounts.

They’re still pretty scary, mind.

But March 11 gave me a whole new perspective on total fear.

You posted information for the 7.1 Earthquake on 07-April-2011, not the earthquake today 11-April-2011.

The earthquake today is a 6.6 magnitude earthquake.

There are having a number of aftershocks in the area -- the largest was a 5.6 magnitude quake in the last hour.

Most of the aftershocks appear to be in this area East/Southeast of the Fukushima Prefecture...

Well, in my case, seeking out clean undies would be on the short list. Thankfully, I've never been in much of a quake.

6.6 was our Richter reading for the Northridge quake in SoCal, and that was horrific in my experience of EQs.

Just had another 4.5 in Tokyo, five in Chiba, epicenter off the coast, so Tsunami is possible.

Anyone want to start a pool on how many we get today?

Is that actually a person's name? Strange name if it is.. One of the meanings is No paper...

Sounds like something from the 80s when there was a shortage of toilet paper :p
