Tsunami warning issued after quake off Fukushima, Japan.

An earthquake with preliminary magnitude of 7.3 has struck off the coast of Fukushima prefecture in Japan. A tsunami warning for waves of up to three meters (10 feet) has been issued.

Man, let's hope this comes to nothing.

The Japan Meteorological Agency says the quake struck around 6 a.m at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles).
Fukushima prefecture is north of Tokyo and home to the nuclear power plant that was destroyed by a huge tsunami following an offshore earthquake in 2011.


  1. A 10' wave isn't much of a wave.

    Maybe that's why Charlie don't surf...?

  2. Well - 10' may not seem like much, unless you're only 3' above sea level...
