A 24-inch tsunami reached the coastal town of Ofunato, in Iwate prefecture, shortly after noon. The meteorological agency warned that a tsunami of about 20 inches would hit the coast.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said a Pacific-wide tsunami was not expected.
"We have confirmed that small tsunami have come up on the shores, but we have no reports of damage at this point," said Shinobu Nagano, an emergency and disaster response official in Iwate prefecture. "We are still trying to determine the impact of the quake."

The vibrations in the Sun have two causes: pressure waves and gravity waves, which are referred to as p-mode and g-mode, respectively. Scientists hope to use the g-mode waves to study the interior of the Sun, in the same way that seismic data can provide an insight into the inner workings of Earth.
But although the p-mode solar oscillations have been observed by the SOHO observatory, g-mode vibrations are not optically detectable. But the evidence of the waves is there, and easily detectable, in data on Earth.
Lead researcher David Thomson says data from the Ulysses mission provides clues as to how the sounds reach Earth. He suggests the vibrations are picked up by the magnetic field at the Sun's surface. The solar wind then carries the field into interplanetary space, where space probes like Ulysses can pick up the signal.
The solar wind also interacts with the Earth's magnetic field, causing it to vibrate in sympathy. From our magnetic field, the signal is picked up by our many technological systems, as well as the planet itself.
The researchers add that the tones are far beyond the edge of human hearing, some 12 octaves below the lowest detectable note. While orchestras tune up to the A above middle C, at around 440 Hertz, the Earth rings at a much more stately 100-5000microHz. That is one vibration every 278 hours, or 11.5 days. ®
bchandler wrote:Well, solar wind is made of of matter... so the p-waves in the solar wind would be detectable when they impact earths magnetic shield.
I am not sure that these waves could actually affect earth geology though... or rather any p-waves strong enough to affect geology in the form of plate tectonics would have to be so massive as to represent a serious threat to life on earth.
gravity waves on the other hand, could... because even though small, they represent a direct distortion in the local fabric of space-time. Gravity waves would also not be deflected, or shielded by earths magnetic field. So vibrations in gravity could in theory could occur at resonant frequencies, causing amplification within the tectonic plates.
These kinds of gravity resonances may also play a large role in regenerating the earths core EM fields... as amplification within resonating plates would input massive amounts of energy back into the earths core. Of course that would also result in globally devastating earthquakes on the surface as well. Of course we all are very much aware of the massive prophetic earthquakes found in revelation... Very interesting.
Dec. 16, 2008: NASA's five THEMIS spacecraft have discovered a breach in Earth's magnetic field ten times larger than anything previously thought to exist. Solar wind can flow in through the opening to "load up" the magnetosphere for powerful geomagnetic storms. But the breach itself is not the biggest surprise. Researchers are even more amazed at the strange and unexpected way it forms, overturning long-held ideas of space physics.
"At first I didn't believe it," says THEMIS project scientist David Sibeck of the Goddard Space Flight Center. "This finding fundamentally alters our understanding of the solar wind-magnetosphere interaction."
The magnetosphere is a bubble of magnetism that surrounds Earth and protects us from solar wind. Exploring the bubble is a key goal of the THEMIS mission, launched in February 2007. The big discovery came on June 3, 2007, when the five probes serendipitously flew through the breach just as it was opening. Onboard sensors recorded a torrent of solar wind particles streaming into the magnetosphere, signaling an event of unexpected size and importance.

"The opening was huge—four times wider than Earth itself," says Wenhui Li, a space physicist at the University of New Hampshire who has been analyzing the data. Li's colleague Jimmy Raeder, also of New Hampshire, says "1027 particles per second were flowing into the magnetosphere—that's a 1 followed by 27 zeros. This kind of influx is an order of magnitude greater than what we thought was possible."
The event began with little warning when a gentle gust of solar wind delivered a bundle of magnetic fields from the Sun to Earth. Like an octopus wrapping its tentacles around a big clam, solar magnetic fields draped themselves around the magnetosphere and cracked it open. The cracking was accomplished by means of a process called "magnetic reconnection." High above Earth's poles, solar and terrestrial magnetic fields linked up (reconnected) to form conduits for solar wind. Conduits over the Arctic and Antarctic quickly expanded; within minutes they overlapped over Earth's equator to create the biggest magnetic breach ever recorded by Earth-orbiting spacecraft.

Watch those vids of the tsunami, and you are seeing coastal farm lands and green houses being wiped out. I expect Japan will be having some food problems of their own in short order... and the devastation will most certainly give rise to disease issues.

the next place for a major quake, maybe even a 9.0. Not only that but it very well could possibly trigger some of the other faultlines on the west coast as well as volcanoes. Several of the mountains in that area are volcanoes.
Now, don't get me wrong here folks. I am not a prophet, nor have I ever claimed to be one. Even if we have a large subduction zone quake in that area soon, that still doesn't mean my dream was prophetic. All I know is, a 9.0 in that area with a likely tsunami to follow would probably be the thing that sends America over that proverbial cliff.
Passion wrote:I live in W. WA and I hate it here. Not because of the quake danger, but because of the horrible wet, cold, dreary weather. And the older I get, the worse I suffer from S.A.D. (which is odd, because from what I've read about it, it should affect me less as I age, not more! But then, medically speaking, I've always been an anomaly!). And the more the damp makes me ache! So I've been wanting to move to N. Idaho.....much drier, way more sunshine, and the lowest cost of living in all the W. states.
But then, there's Yellowstone.
So....I don't know. Kind of a "Choose your poison" sort of thing.
This spring has been disappointing, just seems like winter has taken an extended stay.
(Reuters) - A major earthquake of 7.4 magnitude hit in the Pacific Ocean on Thursday 107 miles (172 km) east of Atka, Alaska, at a depth of about 25 miles (40 km),and a tsunami warning was in effect for parts of coastal Alaska, warning agencies said.
A second quake of magnitude 7.2 hit in the same vicinity and at the same depth a half-minute later, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
New Zealand has been more alert to earthquakes since the South Island city of Christchurch, was struck by two devastating quakes in September last year and in February this year.
