A magnitude 7.4 earthquake struck off the coast of Japan near the Bonin Islands early Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

A Pacific-wide tsunami is not expected, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, but the Japanese Meteorological Agency has issued tsunami warnings for the Ogasawara Islands and a tsunami advisory for southern Japan.

      Agreed, all of you that are making fun of this are immature, disrespectful, and ignorant. You are the reason that so many people hate America. Have pride in America, but not at the expense of everyone else. Don't expect anyone to run to your aid when you're suffering if this is the way you treat events like this.

    Funny?! I hope all of you would still laugh if it was your country in danger, your family suffering. The very least you can do is show some respect.
