Englebert Slaptyback: Can we start naming earthquakes?"Today Earthquake Tetsuo caused extensive damage in the Hokkaido prefecture..."
SurfaceTension: I have a hypothesis...I think the big earthquake actually folded a piece of the crust of the plate on which Japan sits underneath Japan. That would explain the shifts, both horizontally and vertically, of the island. I think the almost constant earthquakes in that area since then are a result of this big piece of crust getting pushed under the rest of the plate and ground down. Once it passes, I wouldn't be shocked if that part of the crust (including Japan) sinks a significant amount into the ocean. It doesn't bode well, obviously.
