BREAKING NEWS

TOKYO A magnitude 7.4 earthquake has hit off the coast of Japan, and authorities have issued a tsunami warning for the country's northeastern coast, which was already ravaged by last month's devastating quake and tsunami.

The warning is for a tsunami of as much as four feet, NBC News reported.

The quake hit 73 miles from Fukushima, where workers are still trying to contain the damage at a stricken nuclear plant, and 207 miles from Tokyo, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

tsunami warning was lifted, but they have been having quakes regularly since the big one...Hope everyone and everything is ok after this one

This is proof, the quakes are definitely being caused by HAARP! :laugh: :rolleyes:

is it normal to keep having quakes regular. i've heard of after shocks but more quakes?

This one occurred on a different fault. It may be a result of slipping now after that other one, but I'm sure that's completely debatable.

my son's science lab teacher told them these are swarms, having multiple quakes back to back.

plate movement in one of 3 ways can cause quakes. a plate can move up down or side ways. so if the plate moved down maybe the pressure from the earth is off and it continues to release pressure causing the repeated quakes. i think this is the 2nd or 3rd being called an aftershock that really is another quake. or say the plate moved up and is trying to resettle and the change from the original quake is causing the earth to reject the increase back to the original position. clearly the continual quakes means the pressure on those plates is not what is should be.
