Earthquake jolts Japan

I don't do a lot of news on Japan. Here we go.

At least one person was killed and at least 40 injured when a strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.1 jolted the coastal area of central Japan on Sunday, public broadcaster NHK said.

A 7.1? That's a not so great score at the olympics.

Japan issued a tsunami warning today along the west coast of the main island of Honshu following a strong earthquake, the meteorological agency said.

No word on whether Godzilla was involved.

Japan lies at the junction of four tectonic plates and endures about 20 per cent of the world's most powerful earthquakes, which frequently jolt Tokyo and other major cities.

What a stupid place to put a country.
