Japan meteorological agency warns potential M8.0 to hit east coast of Japanese island

Having the M7.3 of 12/7/2012, Mr. Nagai from Meteorological agency warned bigger earthquake of M8.0 class is expected.
The M7.3 was one of the aftershocks of 311, which was outerrise type of the earthquake. M8.0 class of the earthquake was expected but the last one was smaller.
There is a possibility that a bigger outerrise type one occurs at North or South of this epicenter.
Outerrise type of the earthquake is a normal fault type caused by the stretched and split Pacific plate outside of the Japan Deep.
It was expected to happen as a reaction of 311, which was reverse fault type.

L’agence météorologique dit de s’attendre à ce qu’un séisme M 8,0 frappe la côte Est des îles japonaises

Suite au séisme de magnitude 7,3 du 7 décembre 2012, M. Nagai de l’agence météorologique prévient qu’il faut s’attendre à un séisme plus fort, de classe M8,0.
Le M7,3 était une réplique de celui du 11-3 qui était un séisme de type extrusif. Un séisme de classe M8,0 était attendu mais le dernier a été moins fort.
Il est possible qu’un coulissage de type extrusif et plus gros survienne au Nord ou au Sud de cet épicentre.
Les séismes en coulissage de type extrusif sont issus de failles de type normal induites par la tension et la cassure de la plaque du Pacifique en dehors de la fosse japonaise.
On s’y attendait en réaction au 11-3 qui a été de type faille inverse.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
