(#Japan #Earthquake) An Unfortunate "Mistake" by Japan Meteorological Agency

The Japan Meteorological Agency continued to report the March 11 earthquake as "Magnitude 7.9", as strong aftershocks rocked the island nation and even long after the USGS reported it as "Magnitude 8.9".

It then changed it to 8.4, then finally to 8.8. They still say M.8.8, the 7th biggest earthquake since 1900, while in the US it is reported as M.8.9, the 5th largest earthquake.

I fear that some people didn't take enough precautions after the quake when they heard the number like 7.9, instead of 8.9, or even 8.4, either of which is totally outside anything that they had ever experienced.

Yomiuri Shinbun's latest update (in Japanese) says 800 people are trapped in a gym in Minami-Sanriku City in Miyagi Prefecture, and fire is approaching.
