Japan Earthquakes

Click = big

This diagram from TBS illustrates the surface instability situation in Japan.

The red lines are where the plates meet. You can see Japan is bisected between east and west by a plate.

The Xes indicate the epicenters of quakes since the 9.0 one last Friday, which have continued through last night with a 6.4 one.

The quake that rocked Shizuoko and was felt in Tokyo was an entirely different system than the one that brought on the 9.0 monster quake.
