A major earthquake occurred near Fukushima Japan...There was no damage reported fortunately...
.

Powerful 6.3 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Japan
  • Quake struck at 4.59pm local time 180 miles east of Iwaki, south of Fukushima
  • It occurred 50 miles deep on the Japan trench, part of the Pacific Ring Of Fire
  • There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage after the quake

Actually that is a strong earthquake....this is the kind of quake that just shakes a lot.....I was in a 6.5 when I was a kid.

This is the kind of quake Japan is ready for.....however, I do not think Saint Louis or Memphis would fair as well.
