Yeah wow I surprised to learn that lekima was still going...lol but the storm hitting them now is francisco or something like that.

Lekima nor any hurricane gave them super typhoon winds though.

The X flares did not have a CMEs with them and are not direct.

Now this is how the Philippine quake should have looked like on the ARRAY

Japan was chosen because the IOC noted that while Istanbul is a nice place - and it is - Istanbul lacks the infrastructure for an Olympic Games; they would’ve had to build 70% of the venues, whereas Tokyo has the infrastructure more or less in place.

At least, until either Fukushima goes totally pear-shaped and leaves the east coast of Japan an uninhabitable nuclear wasteland, or Godzilla shows up.

Which at the rate things are going, and thanks to TEPCO’s utter incompetence, is a distinct possibility.

No, but interesting that a cat 5 was blowing and no one in the news felt it worth reporting. I wouldn't wish to be in its path. For news nowadays, we have to turn to alternative sources like FR. ;-)

IN CASE OF CONFLICTING INFORMATION... THE MORE CONSERVATIVE INFORMATION SHOULD BE USED FOR SAFETY.

Good advice even when not about tsunamis.

Here is the English JMA home page for all the info on Japan earthquakes, weather, etc:

Japan Meteorological Agency:

http://www.jma.go.jp/jma/indexe.html

How this one was felt across Japan:

http://www.jma.go.jp/en/quake/00000000095.html

The intensity dots are linked such that you can keep zooming in on the reports at their individual source locations.

While this one was well off-shore and not felt too strongly on Honshu and Hokkaido, the "big one" of 2011 was preceded [by only a day or two] by several strong off shore EQs, a couple of them 7+.

I doubt it...lol

No the quake was mild on shore...thanks to it being on the Pacific Plate.

But the situation needs to be watched for sure.

The magnitude has been fixed as 6.8 to 7.1 per the latest Japanese information so massive may be an overstatement. I was there for the 2011 disaster and the shaking went on for at least 30 seconds. Even well above the ground that was truly terrifying.

Since the Philippine quake occurred between two plates, kind of isolating it, that might be the reason for the low seismic levels you saw?

Fine here (Chiba).. was low-mid level for me).. lasted about 2 minutes. Started as a small tremble, them worked it’s way up. I don’t think more than a 5 from here.

I am on high ground, so I shouldn’t have to worry about a tsunami.. Ronen may though..

(We are going through a typhoon at the same time, pray for the people hardest hit (up north again)).

We knew it was coming.

Here in the South Bay of Los Angeles, there have been two recent unusual fish sightings in the last week. Twice, oar fish have been found. They are deep water fish that, according to Japanese tradition, are typically only seen when there is going to be an earthquake.

There is a lot of practical wisdom hidden in old stories from the days when people paid closer attention to natural clues.

Actually global cooling increased the Pacific ocean density such that the point pressure per square kilometer off japan induced the quake.

Fine here. Just a rattle or two. Didn’t even wake up the missus. Tsunami warning is in effect for Chiba and the coast, including Fukushima, but it should be a small one. If the defenses have been repaired, no danger to the reactors, let’s all pray on that point.

We are worried about the spent fuel pool of reactor 4, which is way off the ground and held together by duct tape.

Good to hear, my friend.. It wouldn’t have stirred me up much either, I am so used to them.. but I happened to be awake ;)
Were the hanger swinging much? ;^)

My monitors have been on the table so long, they may as well be welded.. They shook a bit, but never budged (of course, this isn’t like the 2011 one either.. lost 2 monitors that day :/).

Just glad that all of us made it out ok.. I know of several FReepers that live here like me, and they were my first concern. Thankfully almost all checked in within about 12 hours. Also have a friend (not FReeper) That lives on a farm in Sendai with his wife and her parents (and their 3 kids).. he was just out of reach of the tsunami, thank God.

Oh, and I remember:






In less than 48 hours, no one would have known that the EQ ever happened. Japan is so full of bureaucratic 'red tape' it's surprising anything gets done... but when it comes to a situation like that, they are on it like worker ants ;^)

This link takes you to the WSA-Enlil solar wind prediction model. Earth is the green dot on the right. They’re showing at least two significant spikes over the next few days, plus one today that I heard knocked out radio communications for 15 mins today in parts of the world. The two predicted to arrive in a few days are a bit stronger than the one today.
