    I never really knew Japan was so unstable until all the stuff happened since the power plant.

    You see all those old buildings you think it's stable, those are horrible things for people to have to deal with.

    Looks like they're in the clear on this one, the Tsunami warning was lifted and I don't think there's been any damage or injuries.

    Keep in mind a 6.8 earthquake has a magnitude like 1000 times less than the 9.0 that cause the tsunami in 2011.

    They're still having problems with leaking radioactive material, and have been since the Fukushima Daiichi plant's damage.

    Keep in mind those old buildings were built in ways that they had learned to use over centuries to resist earthquakes. Japan has always been a seismically active region, but few earthquakes reach the strength of the 2011 earthquake.

    ^ The quake did some damage, yes, but it was the 30-foot high, miles-long tsunami that caused the most destruction and killed the vast majority of the 16,000+ people there. That and the older design of the Fukushima Daiichi plant (this is why newer nuclear plant designs are needed and impediments to progress on that front don't do anyone any favors).

    No reports of any major damage or injuries thus far, or of disruptions to TEPCO operations, thankfully.

    They don't call it the Ring of Fire for nothing though. It's scary to think that my dad-in-law once had the opportunity to move to the Fukushima area for work (and that my wife could have been living with him at the time before we got married) but fortunately he turned down the job offer and decided to stay in Aichi instead.

    Isn't a 6.8 like a few hundred times weaker then the quake back in 2011?

    Oh man, what happens if Takara gets hit??

    Jk, hoping there's not too much damage that can't be repaired this time to Japan.
