    Small tsunami reaches Japan after earthquake

    A small tsunami triggered by a quake has hit Japan's eastern coast - where the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is located - but no damage is reported.

    The 30cm (1ft) waves reached the region after the 7.1 magnitude tremor struck at a depth of 10km (six miles), about 320km off the coast.

    A tsunami alert issued for several areas was later lifted.

    Workers at the Fukushima power station had been told to leave waterfront areas for higher ground.

    But a Fukushima spokesman later said there was no damage or change in readings at radiation monitoring posts around the plant, according to Reuters news agency.

    This type of thing should worry people, because unlike chernobyl, this thing could cause further problems.

    Of course the conspiracy theory part inside of me wonders if they are using this to mask the horrible effects this disaster has already had.

    Yes, some earthquakes will happen. Nothing to worry about globally. However effecs happening on a nuclear disaster site? Yeah, that should be of some worry globally. Already we have seen effects from this disaster are more than what appears to be.
