    shocked2 7.2 Earthquake in Japan 4/7/11

    Oh my Lord! Not AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

    The April 7, 2011 earthquake near the east coast of Honshu, Japan occurred as a result of thrust/reverse faulting on or near the subduction zone plate boundary between the Pacific and North America plates. At the latitude of this earthquake, the Pacific plate moves approximately westwards with respect to the North America plate at a rate of 83 mm/yr, and begins its westward descent beneath Japan at the Japan Trench. Note that some authors divide this region into several microplates that together define the relative motions between the larger Pacific, North America and Eurasia plates; these include the Okhotsk and Amur microplates that are respectively part of North America and Eurasia.

    the region has been hit continuously since before the 9.1 quake struck.

    Depth matters a lot, too. Fortunately this one today isn't quite as effective - but that's probably becaues serious damage has already been done.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
