“Tsunami advisory lifted after east Japan earthquake: NHK
Posted:Fri, 11 Jul 2014 21:35:16 GMT
TOKYO (Reuters) – A tsunami advisory for northeast Japan has been lifted, public broadcaster NHK said, two hours after a magnitude 6.8 earthquake offshore Fukushima prefecture early on Saturday triggered minor tsunami in the region“. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/V-Wg6aJQtpc/story01.htm
If it the tsunami were bigger than a few inches high and it, or the earthquake, further damaged the Nuclear Power Plant, in any way, would the Japanese Government admit it? The earthquake does appear to have occurred around low tide – lucky as tides are supposed to be higher with the large full moon.
“… in the 15th century, a giant wave is said to have swept away a hill-top hall housing the Daibutsu, a huge bronze Buddha, in Kamakura, a town south of Tokyo. /Japan is perched on top of several converging tectonic plates. Geological instabilities cause around 1,000 tremors each year.” http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-pacific-12709793
