Quake & Tsunami warning

Apparently there's a tsunami warning out for the coast along the Tohoku area. Expected to be small waves (around 20 in in height) but if you're in the area – don't be close to the coast!


UPDATE: tsunami warnings also issued for areas along the east coastal areas of Hokkaido.

    The quake earlier was just a little wobble, the one about an hour ago I DEFINITELY felt – the street sign I was standing beside was swaying back and forth.. rather disconcerting. Fortunately, all seems ok.

    The second was Ilt was rather big but not long… But it shook at 5+ at the Tokai Mura nuclear plant. It was already shut down since last year so I guess it is okay.
