^This sounds awful but that's not too bad.  I've been in a 6+ quake and I'd be more concerned about the aftershocks on this one.  The Japanese are super prepared for tsunami and other things.  They're way ahead of the game.  Much like California if not better.

Japan earthquake: Powerful new tremor in Kumamoto

A powerful earthquake has struck near the southern Japanese city of Kumamoto, a day after a tremor there killed at least nine people.
The magnitude-7.1 quake at a depth of 10km (6 miles) hit at 01:25 on Saturday (15:25 GMT on Friday). A number of smaller quakes followed.
A tsunami warning was issued, and lifted some 50 minutes later.
Japan is regularly hit by earthquakes but stringent building codes mean that they rarely cause significant damage.
There are fears that a number of people may be trapped in collapsed buildings after the new earthquake, in the Kyushu region of south-western Japan, says the BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes in Tokyo.
It is difficult to tell which of the buildings were damaged in which earthquake, our correspondent says, adding that a wider area has been hit.
Thursday's magnitude-6.2 quake caused shaking at some places as intense as the huge earthquake that hit the country in 2011, Japan's seismology office said.
That quake sparked a huge tsunami and nuclear meltdown at a power plant in Fukushima.

Italian earthquake death toll rises to 120 with 100 still trapped under the rubble as rescuers searching for their loved ones can only hear the sound of CATS

Are you caught up in the Italian earthquake? Send your photographs to pictures@mailonline.co.uk or email sarah.dean@mailonline.co.uk
The true horror of the Italian earthquake disaster was revealed today as witnesses likened the hellish scenes to 'Dante's inferno' while shocking pictures showed how four towns were almost wiped off the map.

At least 120 people were killed, including two babies, and 100 people are believed to be trapped under rubble after the 6.2-magnitude quake struck at 3.30am local time this morning while villagers slept in their beds.

Today rescuers spoke of hearing children's screams from the rubble and locals were spotted frantically digging with their bare hands to try and save loved ones.

One man, Guido Bordo, 69, lost his sister and her husband after they were trapped inside their holiday house in the hamlet of Illica, north of hard-hit Amatrice. Before their deaths were confirmed, he had described how he could only hear the sound of cats as he scrambled to find his loved-ones beneath the rubble.

The first victim to be named by local media reports is Marisol Piermarini - an 18-month-old baby who was sleeping in her crib when the house she was staying in Arquata del Tronto collapsed. Mother Martina and father Massimiliano were on holiday with their baby when she was killed. They have been taken to hospital with 'many wounds' after being pulled from the rubble.

Deadly Earthquake Strikes Myanmar, Shocks Felt Across Region
YANGON, Aug 24 (Reuters) - A powerful earthquake shook central Myanmar on Wednesday, killing at least three people including two children, and damaging scores of centuries-old Buddhist pagodas around the ancient capital of Bagan.

The 6.8 magnitude quake shook buildings across the Southeast Asian country, with tremors felt as far away as Thailand - where witnesses reported high rise towers swaying in Bangkok - Bangladesh and eastern India.

“We felt quite heavy shaking for about 10 seconds and started to evacuate the building when there was another strong tremor,” said Vincent Panzani of charity Save the Children.

He spoke from Pakkoku, a small town about 25 km (15 miles) northeast of Bagan, the centerpiece of Myanmar’s rapidly expanding tourism industry.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck near the town of Chauk, on the Ayeyarwaddy River south of Bagan and about 175 km (110 miles) southwest of the country’s second city Mandalay, just after 5 p.m. (1030 GMT).

Fire department and Red Cross officials said two children were killed in the small town of Yenanchaung, south of Chauk.

“Two young girls died when a pagoda collapsed on a river bank,” said Moe Thidar Win, deputy director of the disaster management team at the Myanmar Red Cross Society.

Oh dear, oh dear. The quake itself is not that that big but the tsunami is what I think is the most concerning here.

DEVELOPING:  A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck off the coast of Fukushima in Japan early Tuesday, triggering a tsunami warning with waves of up to 10 feet.

The Japan Meteorological Agency says the quake struck around 6 a.m at a depth of 6 miles.

According to Reuters, Tokyo Electric Power Co was checking its nuclear plants in Fukushima for damage. The utility reported that there was no damage to its Onagawa nuclear plant.

Update:

Two aftershocks were reported by USGS, one 5.4 and one 4.8.
A tsunami wave has already been spotted 22 kilometers off the coast of Iwaki City in Fukushima Prefecture, CNN affiliate NHK reported. Images of the port showed waves that the broadcaster described as "backwash" that happens before a tsunami hits shore.
Video on social media from Onahama featured sounds of sirens in response to the warning in effect.
