West Coast of Japan Rattled by a 7.3 Richter Earthquake – No Tsunami Expected on the American West Coast
Central Japan was hammered by a 7.3 Richter earthquake last evening (their local time). The earthquake shaking pushed sea water up along Japan’s beaches but there were no reports of any casualties, it being so late at night.
American seismologists say the behavior of the earthquake caused by shifting tectonic plates was quite strong but according to American scientists they say they don’t expect a tsunami to make it to the American West Coast. But, to be cautious, maybe Americans should avoid the country’s beaches from Alaska to Mexico.
