  1. A magnitude-7.1 aftershock has rattled Japan on the one-month anniversary of a massive earthquake that spawned a deadly tsunami.

    A warning has been issued for a 3-foot (1-meter) tsunami, the same as after another 7.1 aftershock that shook the northeast coast last week. There was no tsunami after that quake.

    People at a large electronics store in central Sendai screamed and ran outside, though the shaking made it hard to move around. Mothers grabbed their children, and windows shook. After a minute or two, people returned to the store.

    THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.
  2. The Earth/land in the high risk Earthquake zone had to crack or move some day. 100,000+ years is more than enough support provided by the Japan land.

    In has been proven by Science that massive land mass break and move away. If I am correct millions or billions of years ago there was only one world land (Asia, Africa, America etc). Later they broke away into many continents.

    Earth land changes and many lands disappear. Earlier where there was land, now there is sea and where there was sea now there is land.

    Japan knows that their land is high-risk Earthquake zone. Why did Japan establish one of the biggest countries in high risk earthquake zone? Are they trying to defeat/conquer Mother Nature?
  3. When human beings become useless, God takes over. That is the ultimate. God has taken over Earth.
  4. Poor Japs can't catch a break, about the only catastrophic event missing is a direct meteor hit on Tokyo.
  5. A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 has jolted in Tokyo and its environs.

    Japan's Meteorological Agency said the quake struck at 8:08 a.m. local time (2308 GMT) Tuesday. The epicenter of the quake was located just off the coast of Chiba, east of Tokyo.

    There were no initial reports of injuries or damage in the prefecture. No tsunami warning was issued.

    The agency said the quake was a string of strong aftershocks since the 9.0-magnitute earthquake and ensuing tsunami in northeastern Japan on March 11. The twin disasters decimated much of the region, killing up to 25,000 people and setting off radiation leaks at a coastal nuclear plant by knocking out its cooling systems.
  6. All these earthquakes will unleash Godzilla on Japan.
