Sleeplessness and Earthquake? related? Japan & Maxico Earthquakes

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

Long wave with short bumps West to East

Quake alert for California, Miami, NY, Maxico, Krachi, Kuchch Gujrat

4pm IST October 2nd, 2008 Mahatma Gandhi’s Birth anniversary

A quake is knocking on western part (with relation to India as center; my place) of Earth. Today at 3:32 pm (15:32 IST +5:30 GMT) I noticed a long wave of tremor going towards East. It lasted for 40 seconds and there were bumps in between, which is indicative of its stretched wave profile, which again indicates that Maxico, California could be the put on alert for an impending quake. Though it was first wave I have witnessed and I normally do not log tremor waves felt for first time with no reoccurred within 12 to 24 hours, but this wave had a long wave nature and it takes more time for long waves to travel long distances. May be next time it will be bringing a quake along with, so be alert California and Maxico and Miami Florida. Kuch Gujrat, Krachi can also be put on alert for any quake tremor felt or reported in that area.
