I woke up at 1:20 AM IST. Its midnight here in India. My inner voice prompted me to log into internet and check for Earthquake news worldwide. To my surprise two major Earthquakes were there in past one hour.
Powerful earthquake hits Japan
JAPAN was rocked late last night by another large earthquake prompting a warning of a tsunami of up to one metre for the Miyagi coast where the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is located.
The tsunami alert was later lifted at 1am local time (2am AEST) . Early reports put the epicentre of the 7.1 magnitude quake in the Pacific Ocean about 66km east of Sendai, or 330km north northeast of Tokyo, at a depth of between 26 and 40km. The quake, which hit at 11.32pm local time (12.32am AEST), is believed to have caused power failures in large parts of northern Honshu and severely shaken buildings. Miyagi Prefecture police reported no major damage or casualties as of 11.55pm Japan time. Read more at The Austrailian

I think Google stopped reporting about Earthquakes. They fear that such news may spread panic among people thinking the doomsday is approaching. But this approach is of no good to world. I am just posting every earthquake news and the seismic activity noticed by my sixth sense, hours before the actual earthquake strikes some part of Earth.
ALERT Seismic activity noticed at 10:55 Hrs IST (05:25 GMT/UTC) Direction : South (30 degrees in West) towards East (45 degrees in North)
same as I felt before 8.8 magnitude Earthquake struck in JAPAN . Nature of seismic pulse : shortwave Intensity : moderate duration : 20 to 30 seconds

(RTTNews 3/27/2011 11:37 PM ET) – A fresh earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter Scale struck the north-east coast of Japan on Monday morning, just over a couple of weeks after a magnitude 9 quake and accompanying tsunami devastated the region.
The quake struck at about 07:23 local time some 67 miles east of the port city of Sendai, which has already been devastated by the earlier quake and tsunami. There have been no reports of immediate causalities or damages from the latest quake.
Though the quake prompted a warning of possible tsunami of 18 inches in the Miyagi prefecture, the Japan Meteorological Agency later lifted that advisory. Source:Read full news story on RTTnews
In my previous post, which I have posted just 5-6 hours back, I have mentioned that the direction of Seismic pulses being noticed by me have reversed and now it moving from South to East.
After that post I went for lunch and saw news on TV about 8.8 magnitude Earthquake struck in Japan. While I was watching the news videos goose bumps started cropping on my body. The news videos of Earthquake was nothing less terrifying to believe that we are seeing end of world kind of movie. This can happen anywhere. May God save us from such devastation. Do you still think Climate change debate was b.s.?
