Tokyo, Dec. 7 (Xinhua-ANI): An earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale jolted off the east coast of Honshu, Japan at 17:18: 24 local time on Friday (08:18:24 GMT), the U.S. Geological Survey said.The epicenter, with a depth of 36.10
A one metre-high tsunami has hit northeast Japan after a powerful 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast that was devastated in last year’s disaster.
Meteorologists said the wave swept ashore at just after 6 pm local time in Ishinomaki, a city badly hit by the 2011 tsunami that wrecked a large swathe of the northeast coast, killing thousands.
According to the United States Geological Survey, there were no immediate reports of any fatalities after the 7.3-magnitude quake that was followed by a 6.2 aftershock, Gulf News reports.
The 7.3 quake struck 36 kilometres under the Pacific, USGS said.
According to the report, the epicentre was 284 kilometres east of Sendai, or 459 kilometres northeast of Tokyo, according to the USGS. (ANI)
- JAKARTA—A 7.1 earthquake shook eastern Indonesia’s Maluku islands Tuesday, but there was no tsunami alert, the US Geological Survey said.
The quake hit at 1653 GMT some 365 kilometers (226 miles) south-southeast of Ambon in the Maluku islands at a relatively deep 157 kilometers, it said, revising its strength down slightly from an initial measurement of 7.2.
AKARTA: A major 7.1-magnitude earthquake shook eastern Indonesia’s Maluku islands Tuesday but there was no tsunami alert, the US Geological Survey said.
The quake hit at 1653 GMT some 365 kilometres (226 miles) south-southeast of Ambon in the Maluku islands at a relatively deep 157 kilometres, it said, revising its strength down slightly from an initial measurement of 7.2.
Indonesian government seismologists put it at 7.4 but said it would not trigger a tsunami because its epicentre was so deep in the Banda Sea.
“We have not received any damage report so far,” Suhardjono, head of the quake and tsunami unit at the Indonesian Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, told AFP.
The quake was felt only weakly in the districts of North Halamahera and Morotai which were closest to the epicentre, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency said in an update.
Indonesia sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where continental plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.
SOUTH CALIFORNIA – The temblor’s epicenter was 172 miles (277 km) southwest of Coronado, Calif., (just outside of downtown San Diego) and 163 miles (263 km) south-southwest of Santa Catalina Island. It originated 7 miles (11.3 km) deep and struck at 2:36 a.m. local time (1036 UTC), the USGS reports.
An aftershock of preliminary magnitude 4.7 followed 15 minutes later.

There are so many thing going on around the world that you may not be aware of. The main stream media only tells you what they have to and downplays the rest to prevent mass panic. Have you heard about the increased solar storms that could take out our entire electric grid, or the 2012 DA14 asteroid that could destroy our entire planet? What about the strange sounds being heard all around the world, or the strange lights being seen in the sky?
The media does report on natural disasters, but are they telling you about all the records being broken for natural disasters? Are you aware of all the birds falling from the sky for no apparent reason, and the fish dying by the hundreds of thousands? There are reports of blood red rivers, strange animal behaviors and so much more you just don’t know about. I strongly urge you to watch the video below and remember, it’s not the medias job to keep you informed, but it’s your job to stay informed.
Prepare yourself and your family for what they’re not telling you.
2012 is everywhere.. in the NEWS, Articles, Forums, Audios / Videos, 2012 is a Phenomena
There has been a great deal written and spoken like this, about the events that await us at the end of 2012, and many questions that arise from these writings:
· Is it the end of the world?
· Will we all be killed?
· Will there be great cataclysms?
· What message were the Maya actually leaving for us?
· Is this a time of great spiritual advancement? If so, where is the evidence?
· In the past, the precessional alignments with Galactic Centre have brought great devastation. Will it be the same this time?
· Why are there crop circles that seem to connect to 2012?
2 of the most popular 2012 End of the World theories
Currently there is a significant amount of people who firmly believe the 2012 theory that the end of the world is in 2012. How can they be so sure that the 2012 is the end of the world? Actually they are following a theory for the 2012 end of the world. They are backing up the claim of 2012 end of the world with predictions from ancient civilizations and the Bible itself.
There are a large number of prophecies that people see fit to all coincide in the year 2012, and this makes the theories more believable as they could agree on one, single thing – the year of the end of the world. The two most popular bases for the 2012 theories are: The Mayan calendars and Nostradamus’ prophecies. Currently they are the most popular 2012 theories. Why is it that 2012 end of the world is so popular? The reason is because they’ve been seen in documentations and movies.
In the year 2010, two years before 2012, people have seen it fit to create movies around the end of the world, thus giving way to many 2012 end of the worldtheory. The Mayans are the most popular and their calendar is considered a single reason why this whole end-of-the-world-in-2012 started. Around 3,000 years (Approx.) ago, the Mayans created around 20 calendars, all of which have different purposes. For example one was used to calculate cultivation in crops, another was used for predicting sun cycles, and another was used to predict the 2012 end of the world. What is most interesting is that, there are scholars who have found that a period known as the Great Cycle started in August 13, 3114 BC and it ends in December 21, 2012 (2012 end of the world). They also said that on this date, the Great Alignment would happen, which means that the Sun would be aligned with the Milky Way’s center. The scholars also said that when this happens, devastating things would happen and would result to the end of the world.
Nostradamus was a famous philosopher, astronomer, mathematician and, as with many famous people in his era, so much more. When his formerly unknown prophecies came into light in 1982, the world had more to fear. While there are many disputes regarding his many miscalculations, his prophecies about many other things are so accurate that you could literally feel the hairs on your back stand on end. Many believers say that there is no harm in believing that the world would end, especially if it is was one of those Nostradamus prophecies that would be so amazingly accurate. He also said that a lunar eclipse after 3 occurrences of a solar eclipse would mark the end. It wouldn’t take a genius to guess the end of this period? That’s correct, it’s 2012. No one knows for sure which of these 2012 end of the world theory would come true, and how much it would matter if you are ready or not.
Obviously, all this end of the world prophecies did really scare the heart of most people. But wouldn’t it be worth it for further than be re-evaluate not to the truth and facts behind these prophecies? Moreover, you can also go for a total and up-close take a look at 2012 prophecies with regards to the end worldwide.
Now the question arises Will the world End on December 21, 2012 ?
– The Answer is ‘No’.
These are nothing but Rumors of an apocalypse are being spread by people in order to make money..There are some things you need to know about the rumors of the “end of the world” or “Doomsday” in 20121.
The “2012 doomsday” is a hoax, a fraud, and an absolute con job. It is a cruel and disgusting lie being promoted by scam artists after money; First they scare people to death that something terrible is going to happen, then publish books and videos on “how to survive the apocalypse”. Get the scam?! You’re not going to fall for something like that… right?
The problem is that some people will fall for the scam. Some people will believe it. Some people will waste their money buying fake information on “how to survive”. Some people will buy worthless survival kits, and some will even buy spaces in shelters that are not going to be built – ever!.
In going December, 2012, thanks to an unusual celestial alignment or maybe just the expiration date of the Mayan calendar our planet will be wracked and ruined. Look on the bright side: you can blow off your estimated tax payments for that year.
Hollywood producers never ones to miss a silver lining are hoping to make some hay with Earth’s imminent quietus. An Hollywood movie, bearing the inventive title ‘2012’, had let you see just how visually stunning doomsday can be.
The brouhaha has got some people’s knickers in a knot. Scientists have waded into this sticky chiffon of pseudoscience and hyperbole, and told everyone to cool it. The end is not nigh, guy. After all, the apocalypse is routinely predicted, but always fails to appear.
This isn’t just a reference to the somber forecasts of the Heavens Gate crowd, or other dire warnings at the turn of the millennium ‘ forecasts that were wildly inaccurate. No, you have to consider the big picture: There’s been life on this planet for nearly four billion years, and nothing not asteroids, gamma ray bursts, shifting magnetic poles, or the occasional supernova nothinghas managed to snuff it out. Life’s tougher than a leather sandwich.
The idea that the Mayan calendar could tell you when the world is going to end is straight-out goofy. Heck, if the Mayans were this good at divining the future, you’d think their empire would still be around. As for cosmic alignments well, they happen all the time, and no one seems the worse for wear. And indeed, what difference could they make Work it out: even when Jupiter is closest to Earth, the force it exerts on our world is 20 thousand times weaker than that exerted by the Sun every day (and the influence of the other planets is far less than Jupiter’s).
So except for those benighted souls who insist on confounding movies with reality, the whole thing is a tempest in a teacup, right Isn’t that what all the science types will be writing once the film hits the multiplex?
Of course it is. But there’s also this: doomsday for humans really will happen, at least if a few hundred million extinct species are any precedent. It’s been estimated that 99.9 percent of all the critters that ever wiggled or waddled across this planet are past tense.
In other words, and despite the fact that we blithely think of ourselves as the crown of creation, we’re no more Nature’s ultimate product than’56 Chevys were the last of the cars. Our species will come to an end, and, presumably, be replaced by a model.
But not yet. Not in 2012. And the reason is what I call the ‘why now’ factor, which is really only a temporal version of the Copernican principle. Stated in simple terms, today’s not likely to be a special time.
Here’s an example. Many people are convinced that aliens have come to Earth to abduct humans. But why now? Why is it that, given 10,000 generations of human history, the aliens are bestowing their unwanted attentions on people today‘ That’s like winning the lottery, even if the prize is not as savory as a pile of cash.
Princeton physicist J. Richard Gott exploited this idea a decade or so ago to gauge everything from cosmic timescales to the run of Broadway plays. A simplified Gott calculation of Homo sapiens’ tenure would go like this: Adopting the ‘why now” philosophy, we can say with 98 percent certainty that humankind is neither in the first 1 percent of its existence, nor in its last 99 percent. Doing the arithmetic, that implies our species has something between two thousand years and twenty million years to go.
Those numbers don’t include ruin in 2012.
But of course you might argue that the ‘why now’ principle doesn’t hold because we’re making today special by wrecking the world. Just about any school kid can rattle off schemes for turning humankind into exhibit fodder for the museums of the future: climate change, nuclear war, pandemics, or just depletion of essential resources.
As bad as these contemporary troubles might be, it’s hard to argue these threats could wipe biology from the face of the Earth.
And in any case, the type of doomsday scenarios examined in films such as ‘2012’ aren’t destruction at our own hand. They are lugubrious calamities caused by external factors (e.g., pernicious galactic alignments). For such external phenomena, which take scant notice of humans, the ‘why now’ principle applies.
To think otherwise is merely to assume that the cosmos revolves around us. And that idea was given the boot more than 500 years ago.
