6.0 earthquake detected right smack in the middle of Fukushima Province this morning

From iol news:

"Tokyo - An earthquake measuring 6.0 on the Richter scale struck early on Thursday in Japan's Fukushima province.

There were no immediate reports of damage from the 4.24am (local time) earthquake, which had an epicentre 30km under the seafloor off Fukushima. Authorities said there was no tsunami threat.

Fukushima was struck on March 11 by a magnitude-9 quake, which caused major damage across the region and set off a tsunami that devastated coastal communities. The twin disasters damaged a powerplant, leading to a nuclear meltdown.

Tokyo Electric Power Company, operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, reported no immediate problems on Thursday at the crippled facility, broadcaster NHK said.

The latest earthquake was strong enough to set skyscrapers swaying in Tokyo, 260km away."

  1. I been pounding trolls at HP, i think it is a good effort to protect those who would stop by and read their propaganda and but their concerns on the back burner. We all want an excuse to do nothing, and that ain't good.

    Nothing is more insidious than radiation, you can't feel it, you can't smell it, you can't taste it (except for the reported metallic taste in mouth sometimes)­. It can affect your system in dozens of ways, fatigue, sore throat, disease, cancer, or just a general disruption of health.

    To compare 20,000 dead to what could be millions or tens of millions negatively affected, diseased, and at some point just outright killed....­well, your argument is an emotional appeal for focus on immediate and stunning diasaster that we can see with our eyes. AND that is exactly my argument that nuclear IS SO MUCH MORE DANGEROUS because it is an invisible energy, whose effect is being downplayed by an entrenched monopoly that will HAVE NO SOURCE OF INCOME when nuclear is eliminate. Better get on roof and learn how to install some solar panels. We are taking your nuke cheese away and you better be ready to adapt.

    Supporting nuke is a crime against humanity. STOP THAT!
