7.1 magnitude earthquake strikes off east coast of Japan

Japan Oct 25
October 25, 2013JAPAN An earthquake registering a preliminary magnitude 7.1 struck off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture early Saturday morning and the Japan Meteorological Agency issued an alert for tsunami of 1 meter high for Japan’s northeastern Pacific coast but lifted it about two hours later. The agency urged people to stay away from waterfront areas after the 2:10 a.m. quake. The tsunami alert covered Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima, Ibaraki and Chiba prefectures. It was lifted at 4:05 a.m. No injuries have been reported in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures after the 2:10 a.m. quake, according to police. No abnormality was reported at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, which was crippled by the magnitude 9.0 quake in March 2011, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co. Workers, however, were ordered to evacuate from waterfront areas. Tohoku Electric Power Co. said no abnormality has been confirmed at its Onagawa nuclear power plant. Evacuation advisory was issued for coastal residents in Higashimatsushima, Miyagi Prefecture, Ofunato, Kamaishi, Rikuzentakata and Iwaizumi in Iwate Prefecture. The agency said 40 cm high waves were observed in Kuji Port, Iwate Prefecture and Soma, Fukushima Prefecture. It also reported 30 cm waves in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture, and 20 cm waves in Ofunato in Iwate. The focus was roughly 10 km underground in the Pacific Ocean around 290 kilometers east-southeast of Oshika Peninsula, the agency said. The quake registered a moderate intensity of 4 on the Japanese seismic scale of 7 in Fukushima, Miyagi, Ibaraki and Tochigi prefectures. Tokyo marked intensity 3. The agency revised the magnitude to 7.1 from 6.8. It said the latest quake is an aftershock of the 2011 quake. – Japan Times

    Earthquake off Japan´s coast artificial
    Want to know how to spot an artificial quake? Look at the depth it occurs at. If you look on the USGS site for the depth of the recent (October 25) earthquake off the coast of Honshu Japan it was at 10 KM. It is important for people to realize that NEVER in the history of earthquakes have we EVER had anything significant as shallow as 10 KM, earthquakes typically happen at 70 KM or more. Any quake that happens at or near 10 KM is now suspect for either a nuclear blast or the earthquake machine.

    The 3/11 quake happened at 10 km, the Chiapas earthquake happened at 10 KM, and the Haiti earthquake happened at 13 KM, and this quake off the coast of Japan at 10 km is virtually assured to in fact be a military threat. If it spawns a significant tsunami (yet to be seen) it was nuclear, but I doubt it was.

    If you read the mails from Japan, the Japanese were wondering why all the recent serious quakes felt weird and happened at 10 KM, when normally quakes in Japan happen at 50 KM or more. The fact that this is happening is more than suspicious, it´s damning, 10 KM is typically the minimum that can be measured and it´s a safe bet that the quakes are even shallower and are in fact tugs on the surface of the earth’s crust by some sort of gravity cancellation device. This would explain why the Japanese did not recognize these earth movements as quakes at first, read mails from Japan for perspective on this.

    And another side note – it cannot be said that a geography change is now causing so many quakes in Japan to occur at 10 KM, because the country is over a thousand KM across and if anything happened as shallow as 10 KM, all the 10 KM quakes would be localized. They are not, they are happening everywhere even outside of Japan and it is not difficult to figure out why.

    Take a look at the following for perspective:

    It is an understatement to say, the last thing this area needs is another earthquake of this size regardless if the smart people who suppose to know, say it is an after shock of the 2011 event.
    For those who get earthquake alerts in their e-mails from the USGS there sure is a lot of activity in the south pacific this past week.

    How do we know this is an after shock, and not another for shock? Last time there was a 7.6 and there were no after shocks then 3 days later they had the 9.0 if there are no after shocks again we should be concerned.

    Alvin dont you find it very strange that there was such a large quake near fukashima, and not hardly a peep of info coming out of japan since this earthquake happened. I just know the reactors were on the brink of catastrophe and then another large quake??? whats going on??
