7.4 earthquake hits coast of Japan

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.

    Nothing Mothra can't handle. Hey! If you like old Sci-Fi movies like Godzilla vs.Mothra, http://www.wirelessfree.tv show's them. They have several diff. channels from old westerns to comedies. The only catch is that between ea. movie, there's one of those 'buy one mop and get the second one for free'(just pay shipping and processing fee) commercials. My fav is the old Sherlock Holmes starring Basi Rathbone on the crimefree channel. Check it out when yer done making fun of Cesar. (he-he)

    Currently, Bonin Island is still being rocked by a lot of 4.2-5.9magnitude tremors...seems that the 7.4magnitude earthquake was just the beginning...
