Massive Earthquake hits Japan near Okinawa

26 02 2010

Details are still coming in but here is what is known so far. From ABCNews.com:

Just minutes ago a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck off Japan in the Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Geological Survey reports. The epicenter is the Ryukyu Islands,  about 50 miles off Naha, in Okinawa.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says “no destructive widespread tsunami threat exists based on historical earthquake and tsunami data.”However, “earthquakes of this size sometimes generate local tsunamis that can be destructive along coasts located within 100 kilometers of the earthquake epicenter.” No reports yet of damage or injuries.

You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something
which I feel I might never understand. It sort of feels
too complicated and very vast for me. I am having a look forward to
your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!
