Of interest. A masive earthquake has been predicted for nz alpine fault. June 18 at 11.32am.
Now Nostradamus has a prediction of a great earthquake on cascadia fault near Vancouva usa between 18th June 2020 and 12th july due to planet alignment. Interesting same dates
If we believe that stuff or not it will be very interesting to watch and hope neither eventuate.
The whole thing is completely laughable(and is probably a joke). Why? Firstly, because of the precision of the prediction:Was sounding very convincing until I read this bit: "Many bridges and roads will be damaged or completely destroyed, and tsunamis up to 30m high will occur in Milford Sound, where over 500 people will die when tour boats, loaded with passengers from the United States and France, will be destroyed." I dont see myself as someone able to predict the future, but even I reckon that there is a pretty good chance that we won't find boats full of people from the US and France in NZ any time soon...
I'm a bit concerned about the tanks of radioactive waste water at Fukushima Daichi Nuclear power plant..... damage and leakage not out of the question.
The M9 quake in 2011 lasted 5 min. The length of time is proportional to the energy released.I think it's okay. The peak length was very short. 2011's one was big and looooooooooooooong. It was by far the longest one. I think most earthquakes = the peak length is only 5 to 10 secs while 2011's one was like 90 secs to 120 secs with 2 peaks. Which scared me seriously. Actually, today's one was just like "oh, just another big earthquake" and the peak length was only 5 secs or so.
This is small enough not to damage buildings too much, but large enough to damage tanks of radioactive waste water at Fukushima Daichi Nuclear power plant, IMO.Anyway, even this earthquake is just small and cute as a baby if compared to 2011's mega earthquake, and buildings and facilities in Japan are not designed to be damaged by this level of earthquakes, I assume. That said, I never knew how long the earthquake could last when it was actually hitting, so I was worried.
Well, the government is planning to dump them in the sea anyway, so...This is small enough not to damage buildings too much, but large enough to damage tanks of radioactive waste water at Fukushima Daichi Nuclear power plant, IMO.

Guess this may well have triggered avalanches too? Will be a while before we find out everything that's happened. In the meantime, I'm off to bed. Stay safe all.
Yeah, and I'm not worried anyway. Actually, when people were freaking out on the power plant, the place which is only 20 km away from the power plant had the radiation level which was as low as or lower than London, NY, Paris, etc. People over-reacted, so we could buy the ski lodge in Fukushima at an amazingly low price.
It seems the earthquake caused a landslide, and the landslide hit a highway in Fukushima. Some cars might be hit by the landslide.
Didn't feel anything here in North Niigata, I didn't actually know about it until I saw this thread. I hope everybody is ok.
Your smartphone didn't suddenly start saying "Emergency, big earthquake is coming!"?

Still remember the 9.1 warning in Tokyo Bay.Your smartphone didn't suddenly start saying "Emergency, big earthquake is coming!"?. I think mobile phones in many different regions of Honshu started issuing the early warning very noisily a few secs before it actually started quaking. Sometimes, the sudden very noisy early earthquake warning from smartphones surprise me more than the earthquakes themselves do
This is the noisy sounds of the early warning.
About Japan's early warning system (uploaded 10 years ago, so a bit old video, though)
A big qhake at my place in Yokohama. Lasted about 2min.
Not close by, so my guess is Magnitude 7.5, 400km away.
Only 60km offshore from Fukushima Daichi Nuclear power plant.
M7.1 about 380km from my place.
