A massive 8.9/9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Pacific Ocean nearby Northeastern Japan at around 2:46pm on March 11 (JST) causing damage with blackouts, fire and tsunami.Over 230 aid workers from U.S, U.K & China entered Ofunato, a destroyed towns. All of them were speechless at the devastation of tsunami.let's hope Japanese people can be strong and recover from the huge disaster soon....

7.1 earthquake hits off Japan coast
Thursday, April 7, 2011 11:32:41 PM at epicenter
Depth: 49.00 km (30.45 mi)

After a month since the big one, this 7.1 Mag is 66 km closer to Japan than the big one, but is double in depth, so i guess it won't be like the big one.

Hope all are safe.

Back in the early days, we had the "Town Crier" with all the alarms, e.g., "The British are coming"

Now we have our own alarmist right here on this board. :P

Well, it's a dirty job but someone's got to do it,
If the event don't happen, the people get alarmed / angry,
and if it does happen, people will blame him for it happening. :D
