70% Chance of Another M7 or Greater Earthquake in Japan Within 3 Days

That's what Japan Meteorological Agency just announced. The Agency also upgraded the earthquake on March 11, 2011 from magnitude 8.8 to 9.0. M9.0 would be the 4th largest (tie) earthquake in the world since 1900.

From Yomiuri Shinbun (original in Japanese, 2:19PM 3/13/2011):

Japan Meteorological Agency announced that there was 70% chance of an earthquake in the magnitude of 7 or greater within 3 days starting 10AM on March 13, 2011, and 50% chance within 3 days starting 10AM on March 16, 2011.

Thank you for posting this information. I was wondering about the chance of a quake in the near term. If you are in Japan, be strong, be smart, and may the spirit of perseverance and wisdom rule the day.

Unyielding love and strength to you, in this, an hour of heartbreak and challenge. May Japan weather the storm and emerge stronger for the effort. I wish I could do more, but I give what I give in all sincerity.

Thank you for your kind words. My family and relatives and friends are in Japan. I hope they will persevere, DESPITE their government doing everything according to the Murphy's law.
