    The latest in a flurry of activity on the western side of the "ring of fire".

    Very nice of you to be concerned.

    I confess I didn't feel it, and only heard about it when my son rolled in from Kyoto and told me there had been another quake out Miyagi way.

    As against the Tohoku quake 10 years ago, when I staggered around outside a subway station for a minute or so, convinced that I was ill/drugged/having a stroke because I couldn't keep my balance.

    Maybe they felt this one in Tokyo, though?

    Tsunamis are always a threat when there's a quake like this.

    Mojo to all.

    I'm even farther away and didn't notice anything, but my wife and kids are at her parents' house up an hour north of Tokyo (Tsukuba-shi), and they got a bit of a jolt but nothing broke.

    They must've felt it in Tokyo, where it registered as a 3 or 4.

    been watching shows about the fukushima tsunami and man when it happened i didnt get to see the footage they showed recently...they said the water reached 40 meters in areas...i never saw footage until the other day...crazy

    hopefully a tsunami doesnt happen since this quake is close to fukushima

    good luck to all

    NBC reports:

    No major damage has been reported, according to Japan's public broadcaster NHK, and there have been no reports of severe injuries.

    The earthquake was initially recorded as having a magnitude of 7.2 , which was downgraded later on Saturday to 6.9 by the Japan Meteorological Agency, which also re-adjusted its calculations of the depth of the epicenter to 59 km from 60 km.

    An initial advisory for a tsunami up to 1 meter in height for Miyagi prefecture immediately after the quake, was also lifted by Japan's Meteorological Agency later on Saturday.
