M6.6 earthquake strikes western Japan; no danger of tsunami

 

National Oct. 21, 2016 - 02:24PM JST ( 2 )

 

TOKYO —

A powerful earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.6 shook western Japan on Friday afternoon, but there is no danger of a tsunami, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The agency said the quake occurred at 2:10 p.m in Tottori Prefecture, at a depth of 10 kilometers.

The agency said there was no danger of a tsunami from the inland temblor.

There was no immediate report of injuries or damage, officials said. The earthquake caused temporary blackouts at about 39,000 homes in the region, Japan’s NHK public television reported.

Koji Nakahara, an official at the coastal town of Hokuei near the epicenter, said the town hall building was shaken but nobody was injured.

“It shook quite violently and file cabinets fell down, but luckily nobody got injured in this office,” Nakahara said in a telephone interview with NHK. “At lease there is no tsunami warning, that’s a big relief.”

Several minutes is a long time ..... very scary.   Any tsunami warnings ?   

No seems they're all land-based.

 

First shaker was 6/7 on the Japan scale. Likely high due to the shallowness.

 

There have been several aftershocks since. TV alarm keeps going off.

A powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake has struck New Zealand.

The relatively shallow quake of 10km deep, happened just after midnight Sunday near the city of Christchurch.

Some minor damage was reported in the capital, Wellington, about 200km away.

Authorities say the quake generated a tsunami with first waves hitting the South Island.

Residents are being warned to move to higher ground.

As of Sunday morning, there was minor damage and no injuries reported.

Argentina

Meanwhile, a 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck Argentina just after 8am local time.

It was centered in La Rioja province, about 26km north of the community of Chilecito.

The quake was about 100km deep.

There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Crazy stuff, I heard New Zealand was struck by another big aftershock. I personally think we aren't prepared for the big one that they have been speculating is going to hit in the BC region.

Anyone who lives a bit south east of Vancouver feel it?

 

 

Youtube channel(someone named Mary Greeley?) has a report linking the quake to Yellowstone's recent rockin' & rollin'. Seems she's one of these "earthquake-experts".

 

Better hope that baby don't blow.

Wow.. I just watched one of her videos. I don't know what's more stupid, her videos, or the comments from the bible thumping right wingers claiming the government is sacrificing everybody.
