Buddha Take The Wheel: Japan Wakes Up To Another Earthquake And Tsunami Warning

- By Bossip Staff

The people of Japan are still living on edge, with the constant awareness that at any moment, nature could strike again.

For them, today started with a panic.

Japanese authorities on Monday called off a tsunami advisory after a 6.5-magnitude earthquake off the country’s northeast coast produced little more than ripples.

However, the Japan Meteorological Agency urged coastal residents to remain prepared to evacuate because of a continued threat of aftershocks that could spawn tsunamis.

Authorities issued a tsunami advisory Monday morning for coastal areas of Miyagi Prefecture in northeastern Japan after a quake struck the region at 7:24 a.m. The tsunami advisory was cancelled at 9:05 a.m.

The tsunami height had been expected to climb to half a meter, or 1.6 feet, tall. Video of the coastal area in the tsunami zone aired by Japanese broadcaster NHK showed slight ripples to the water, which “could be indicative of rises” in water levels, CNN meteorologist Jacqui Jeras said.

Hirofumi Yokoyama, a meteorological official, said Monday’s temblor was the latest of a series of aftershocks to rattle the region since a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and the tsunami it triggered devastated coastal villages, killed thousands of people and set off Japan’s worst nuclear disaster since World War II.

Japan had also been hit by a few strong earthquakes in the weeks leading up to the 9.0 earthquake on March 11. But clearly, after the devastation they’ve seen this month, earthquakes have taken on a whole new meaning.

    You people do know that the majority of Japanese are atheist? I guess its funny, but it’s also completely wrong. Over half the population thinks Buddha doesn’t exist and if there was a majority religion it would be Shintoism. SMH @ ignorance.


    No yall didn’t say Buddha! ANYWAY amazing how they fixed that road in three day!

    Buddhism isn’t the main religion in Japan and even if he was it wouldn’t matter because there is no divine/supernatural power in Buddhism…
