For dates 13-15th March 2011

Please give the thread a bump or even a small comment after voting. TY.

I made a thread on the LATimes story with say 70% probabilty of 7.0 EQ in Japan in net 3 days but forgot to add a poll. New thread here - What do you think?

(first thread Thread: Japan EQ - It is now a 9.0 and 70% chance of greater than 7.0 in next three days. )

LATimes story - [link to www.latimes.com]

With punishing aftershocks continuing to jolt the quake zone, the Japan Meteorological Agency revised the magnitude of the earthquake to 9.0, Kyodo News agency said. The upgrade made the quake one of the largest ever recorded in terms of magnitude.

Adding to the urgency of rescue efforts, the agency said there was a 70% probability of a magnitude-7 quake in the next three days.

Well only a few votes and people here think there is more than 70% chance. Anyone else?

"Japan is an earthquake-prone archipelago, and lining its waterfront are 54 nuclear plants. It's been like a suicide bomber wearing grenades around his belt," said Katsuhiko Ishibashi, a professor emeritus at Kobe University.

Ishibashi served on a committee setting safety guidelines for Japan's nuclear reactors in 2005, but resigned because he felt people weren't heeding his warnings about the potential for a disaster.

In 2007, another nuclear plant, Kashiwazaki-Kariwa, suffered serious damage in an earthquake.

Since Friday's quake, a dozen of the country's reactors have been shut down, sharply reducing the power supply to the country. Authorities have been urging civilians to conserve power during the crisis.

Even many miles from the quake zone, the ripple effect of disrupted supply was being felt, and fuel had grown scarce closer to the epicenter. At a gas station in Shimizu, a few miles outside Fukushima, there was a 10-liter limit per vehicle. Even so, said attendant Hiromi Shimura, "we'll probably run out by later today."

On the only major road north from Tokyo that was still open, convenience store shelves were bare, having been stripped the day before.

"The rice is gone. Then people bought all the bread. The factories are closed. We can't get any more stock," said Tasaomi Tamura, a 35-year-old clerk at a store on the outskirts of Utsunomiya.

This is normal. I felt large aftershocks for months after the 9.2 in alaska.

Does Alaska have 54 nuclear plants on it's shoreline?

I think it only has HAARP tucked away in the mountains.

Thanks for voting.

I'm only saying that, yes, it's going to happen. And big tremors will be felt for months and will continue to do damage to already weakened structures.

Yep, 20% voting here at GLP say it will definitely happen. And those already weakened structures include some aging nuclear power plants near the end of their commission. You have to wonder how much maintenance has been occurring and how good it has been?
