Not really. They must have had dozens of aftershocks of this strength. A 6.3 isn't that big a deal in this case.

The quake sheet for Japan looks like this most days.

I felt it. Just a “normal” quake in Tokyo. Forgotten as soon as they are over. I didn’t even turn on the tube to see where it was.

Must be getting back to normal.

If this one had occurred before March 11, no one would have even noticed it.

We’re still a bit hypersensitive.

An earthquake off the coast of Japan — what’s the worst that could happen?

Thanks, guys. There’s nothing like having on the scene reporters to give the all clear.

A 6.3 in my hometown would be a big deal. A 6.3 off the coast of Japan after all they’ve been through probably doesn’t cause much of a stir.

thanks for the ping. I did notice this on the USGS when it came in.Japan doesn’t need any more destruction. I don’t think this would cause a huge stir compartitively speaking but anything over a 5 in that area is not good right now, especially on their nerves!

Egads, that quake sheet. If they didn’t have a quake every hour, on the hour, they’d think something was terribly wrong.

I got that way to about 5.5 in Taipei.

Around 6.0 and I was paying rapt attention.

Particularly in the highrise with restaurant vegetable oil cans in the upright pillars, supports to avoid having to use so much cement. LOL.
