    I'm getting word from friends in Japan that another earthquake just hit Miyagi. And it was a big one. A tsunami warning has already been issued.

    Have the news updated on this yet? The BBC are currently silent on it (I assume because it literally just happened).

    BBC are now confirming the earthquake. Apparently it was a 7.4 and a tsunami of 3ft is expected. For reference, Miyagi is the area the last earthquake and tsunami hit.

    Interesting how one news source keeps saying 7.1, while another news source keeps saying 7.4.

    I've heard "3 feet" as to the size of the possible wave.
