    They sure get a lot of quakes there.
    I consider that a good size quake.

    I’m sure it caused no damage and everything is under control.

    “Tokyo Electric Power Co Inc reported that there had been no damage to nuclear reactors in the region.”
    should read
    Tokyo Electric Power Co Inc reported that there had been no more damage to nuclear reactors in the region.

    that will be the iaea doublespeak then! translates well from iaea language to japanese then to english probaly via an obscure tanzanian dialect! it probaly said something entirely different originally!

    1. they will never admit further damage.

    2. we all knew this was bound to happen, as WindSolar says..this is ‘alot of quakes’.. are is called the ‘Ring of Fire’ for a reason, and it isn’t like they didn’t know that when then built the darn things !

    3. I really do hate to hear this, I don’t see how it could not do more damage.. they darn things are so fragile as we all know.

    I think the epicenter was about 18 mi. from Iwaki city. Iwaki city sure has taken a beating. I thought I saw the camera shaking about 1:00 or 2:00 pm cst today. I’m not a veteran webcam watcher so maybe the wind was just blowing.

    These reactors are just so tough – nothing ever damages them and there’s never any danger to the public. I don’t know why I’m so worried about them.
