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.
Not on news yet, but on twitter just now - News Flash: 7.4 Earthquake hits off coast of Japan, tsunami warning issued in Miyagi and Iwate prefecture. Japan Meteorological Agency says "Tsunamis are expected to arrive imminently"
Oh my God...I hope this is not completely like it is being stated on here...or another severe earthquake. No news reported yet down here in Houston. Those Poor people of that country. My heart and prayers are with them!
so true and now it is official http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld … 6382.story
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.
Really really sad for them. I hope everything will be ok. I will visit Japan in July, it's been my dream to visit there for so long

Live footage has shown tsunami up to 10 metres hitting the shore of Japan. Earthquake 8.4 100 kms off the coast. This is huge.
