Earthquake in Japan

Just seen a report of another quake off of the eastern coast of Japan apparently registering 7.3, Tremors were felt in Tokyo http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-20638696
No reports of casualties but a Tsuamami warning has been issued.

Heard about it on the news. Looks like it will not cause anything serious like the one nearly two years ago! Thank goodness... but still scary.

Yes that area off the NE coast of Japan seems to be a very hot spot in the "Pacific ring of fire".

Aloha!

Hoping for the best for them, as they continue to cope with and slowly recover from the tragedy that's less than two years old.

my colleague's son lives in Tokyo. He texted her that he was on a train that shook, but they are all safe. and the "Tsunami" was a 3 foot wave, so no panic.

but worrying all the same.

Are you looking at any place on the NE coast for next fall?
