Must be some kinda alien master plan I guess.;)

My understanding is that a really, really big one is often followed by some big after shocks. I doubt the Japanese even break step for a 6.7.

Nobody here (Central-West Japan) seems to care much... barely made the news. Just your typical lights-rattling shots and a short clip on the evacuation - school children being ushered long, that sort of thing. Lots of documentaries on the big Tsunami clean-up still... the obligatory Fukashima reports. Many, many stories about Tokyo area power saving. Martyrs living with their air-conditioners unplugged in 36C+ weather and the like. Lots of obligatory shots of sweaty people working with half the lightbulbs removed. It's that kind of place.

I'm not looking forward to the layover in Narita while flying home. It was muggy-hot in April on the trip here.

dont worry our time is comming as well tornnato's and earth quakes to come soon enough,

good thing is any of us that live far enough from the oceans we wont get hit with a tsumi , but we might just fall into the abyss if we get a bad enough earth quake , just give them time to get it the right setting on Harrp and were all going to get a s**T kicking ..

I,m actually thinking of a few safety measures for myself,,,,

Got the legs of my bed mounted on coil springs, panel beside the bed with a main power disconnect, fire extinuisher, respirator masks, hard hat, pick axe, bandages etc, coil of rope, things like that.:D

Anything over a 5 will make you sit up and pay attention.

Last week we had a 5.5 followed an hour later by a 6.3 then we had a 5.3 the othernight at 10.30.

In total since last September we have had around 7500 quakes and aftershocks. They wear people down, and change the way you think, I personally dont like old buildings , multi story buildings arent much of a problem because most of the ones in the city are going to be demolished including a 26 floor hotel.

The Japanese have been put through alot more than us, I cant imagine what it must be like for them

It would be nice if Japan stopped getting rocked, just maybe Al Nipon will hire me to train their pilot recruits... Been on the waiting list for a couple of months now... Damn mother nature...

a tsumi would certainly be a problem, but another tsunami would be much worse

Over there, that is called an aftershock. Actually, it is considered an aftershock of the Mar 11 quake. They have had 75 aftershocks over 6.0 since the Tohoku quake hit and 1348 significant ones of various sizes. They are probably going to be seeing many more before things finally bed down after the big Tohoku main-quake. It is about the 5th largest aftershock.

You can watch them all plotted on a map and animated here:

We are in Ashburton, hardly more than an hours drive from you and we barely feel a rattle although there are a few of the older buildings in town with red stickers. I saw them getting ready to drop a row of brick built shops this morning
