    All of those links are a month old and give you old news about the March
    earthquake. Nevertheless there has been another earthquake in Japan today
    and there is a Tsunami warning issued.

    That's nothing compared to the one that hit them last month. IIRC it was
    re-rated from 9.9 to 10. which means it was almost 1,000 times more
    powerful than this 7.2.

    If I recall, the previous one was initially rated as 8.9 and then
    upgraded to 9.0. I haven't heard anything higher than 9.0.

    This morning's local TV news stated Japan was going to disperse
    radioactive waste into the Pacific ocean. They suspect it will dilute
    the radioactivity.

    Thank goodness I used the IIRC disclaimer. |You are right and I stand
    corrected. That means my calculation was wrong too and rather than that
    big one being close to 1000 times more powerful than today's aftershock
    was only<?> 100 times more powerful.

    Mountains and volcanoes tend to go hand in hand. The way I understand
    it is that when tectonic plates meet, one slides under the other. The
    pressure builds until it something pops and there is massive movement as
    one slides under the other and forces it up. The friction of this
    movement of one huge rock mass against another melts the material. I am
    sure that most people here can google a site with an animation to
    explain it.

    I'm so sorry they have to keep going through this. Unfortunately, they
    could have aftershocks for months, or even years from what I've heard.
    I'd be trying to get out of there for a while but of course that's
    easier said than done.

    Cheryl,

    Yeah... Japan is getting brutalized!!!

    I don't know how I'd cope.

    Another tsunami is probably hours away.

    So unfair!!!

    Japan has had lots of serious earthquakes. It is one of the most quake
    prone areas in the world and has had major earthquakes on a regular
    basis for years.

    They are used to almost daily earthquakes and mostly prepared for them
    other than the real big ones like the 9.0. It's the tsunamis that they
    are far less prepared for.
