Japan 6.2 Quake

Japan has been having earthquakes almost every single day since March 2011.
Yesterday there was a 6.4, today there was a 5.1 and now another 6.2.

To make it worse, it struck only 45km from the coast, less than 70km from both Fukushima reactors. I have not heard yet if there is any tsunami warnings, but I have contacted a friend in the northern island to find out what I can.

The very next earthquake to happen was another 6.2 near Paupa New Guinea, another hotspot of activity, just off the coast of the Djual Island.
