7.1 earthquake rocks Tokyo

leave a comment »

A 7.1 earthquake rattled Tokyo and surrounding areas today, AP reports. The strong quake, which struck just before 8 pm local time, disrupted trains and a professional baseball game, but so far there are no reports of damage or casualties, and no threat of a resulting tsunami. Japan is one of the world’s most earthquake-prone countries, and experts say Tokyo has a 90% chance of being rocked by a major quake within the next 50 years – Newser

Nothing is worse than having your professional baseball game disrupted.  Except maybe a 50 foot tall radioactive lizard that breathes a radioactive breath weapon and is able to knock over buildings just by leaning on them.
