    (Reuters) - The operator of Japan's wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant said on Saturday there was no damage or spike in radiation levels at the station after a large earthquake struck in the ocean east of Japan, triggering a small tsunami.

    There were no immediate reports of damage on land from the quake, classified as magnitude 7.1 by the Japan Meteorological Agency, which struck about 370 km (230 miles) out to sea. Earlier the agency said the quake had a magnitude of 6.8.

    Japanese television said a 30 cm (1 foot) tsunami had reached Japan's east coast...

    A 7.3-magnitude earthquake shook Japan early Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

    The quake was off the Fukushima region of Japan, 231 miles east off the island of Honshu...

    ...The Japan Meteorological Agency reported a one-foot tsunami was observed after it issued a yellow-colored warning Saturday morning, meaning a small tsunami could reach the coast at Fukushima, site of Japan's 2011 nuclear power plant disaster.

    There were no immediate reports of damage from the temblor, which Japanese authorities classified as ranging from magnitude 6.8 to 7.1. No irregularities were reported at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. A spokesman at Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), which operates the plant, told Reuters some workers had been told to evacuate to higher ground...

    Earthquake Magnitude of 6.8, 7.3, 7.1...or something.
    Tsunami waves of 1 metre, 30 cm, 1 foot...or so.
    Tepco says all is well...

    Huh.....and I would have thought you were a beach babe growing up.
    But really, this sheet is downright scary. It's invading all our oceans, and soon all we'll see under water is the distant glow of formerly fine fishies.
    This is a huge huge problem and it's pretty much been downplayed. At best.
    Hope u r feeling well. I'm ok. drugged- hubby keeps telling me to open my eyes and I tell him they ARE open! lol:seeya::loveyou:

    Yes, it would probably be an interesting, legal, and free form of suicide for those so inclined - although it would be slow.

    The title to this article is a little sensationalist, but it does give quite a few things to think about.

    28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried(sensationalist) With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima

    1. Polar bears, seals and walruses along the Alaska coastline are suffering from fur loss and open sores
    2. There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline&#8230;
    4. Something is causing fish all along the west coast of Canada to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.
    11. Some experts believe that we could see very high levels of cancer along the west coast just from people eating contaminated fish&#8230;
    15. At this point, 300 tons of contaminated water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.
    21. It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean by the year 2020.
    23. The immense amounts of nuclear radiation getting into the water in the Pacific Ocean has caused environmental activist Joe Martino to issue the following warning&#8230;

    Your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.

    Quite a bit more at teh link.
    I think the numbers they have a still a little low. Most of their estimates have to do with Cesium-137. What about all the other chemicals? And what about the most dangerous one, Plutonium? That's the one that a microscopic speck of would give someone cancer!

    I'm at the point that I think everything is a conspiracy. I don't believe our government or the Japanese would tell us the truth about this.

    also great whites where there are NEVER great whites on the California Shore...a couple of weeks ago someone in Oceanside CAUGHT one while fishing either on the pier, or on shore, I can't remember the details, also the whale migration has been amazing to watch, but I've never (and I've lived by the beach a lot of my adult life) seen so many as the last couple of years.

    TOKYO, Japan — Japan fell quiet at 2:46 p.m. Thursday to mark the minute that an earthquake began 10 years ago, setting off a tsunami and nuclear crisis that devastated the country’s northeast coast in a disaster that one survivor said he fears people are beginning to forget...

    It's hard to believe 10 years have passed since the tsunami. My thoughts and prayers continue for the people of Japan.
