Tokyo - A magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit off Japan's northeastern coast Wednesday, shaking buildings hundreds of miles away in Tokyo and triggering a small tsunami. There were no immediate reports of significant damage or injuries.

The quake struck at 11:45 a.m. local time and was centered about 90 miles (150 kilometers) off the northeastern coast - about 270 miles (440 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo - at a depth of about 6.2 miles (10 kilometers), Japan's meteorological agency said.

A 24-inch (60-centimeter) tsunami reached the coastal town of Ofunato, in Iwate prefecture, with other towns reporting smaller waves reaching shore about 30 minutes after the quake.

"We have confirmed that small tsunami have come up on the shores, but we have no reports of damage at this point," said Shinobu Nagano, an emergency and disaster response official in Iwate. "We are still trying to determine the impact of the quake."

Some train lines in the area were temporarily stopped after the quake, but they were restarted shortly after noon. Tohoku Electric Power said there was no damage at its nuclear power facility in the region.

Philippines: 3 Rockfall Incidents Recorded at Bulusan; 3 Quakes at Mayon

Mount Bulusan volcano spews ash in Sorsogon province, eastern Philippines, Nov 2010.
One volcanic earthquake and at least three rockfall incidents were recorded near restive Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon in the last 24 hours, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Friday.

In its 8 a.m. update, Phivolcs also noted weak steaming activity at the southeast thermal vent.

"Bulusan Volcano's status remains at Alert Level 1. This means that the source of activity is hydrothermal and shallow. Entry to the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) is strictly prohibited, since the area is at risk to sudden steam and ash explosions," it said.

Citing the prevailing wind direction, Phivolcs reminded residents in the northwest and southwest sectors of the volcano to take precautions against ash falls.

It also said civil aviation authorities must warn pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano's summit as ejected ash and volcanic fragments from sudden explosions may be hazardous to aircraft.

Far North Pole Shaken by Moderate Quake

Far North Earthquake

North Pole - A 4.8 earthquake rattles the far North Pole at a depth of 10 km at NORTH OF SEVERNAYA ZEMLYA (number 5 grid in Yellow) on the map of the Arctic Pole. The peculiar nature of the location of this quake leads us to conclude that since the magnetic north pole is now racing towards Russia and the Earth has been under constant bombardment from the rabid sheer of the solar winds over the last 48 hours, that this is a trembling effect in magnetic field generation- perhaps one more tangible sign that planet's magnetic field dexterity is insidiously eroding. We've been watching seismic anomalies under Greenland and strain starting to show across Antarctica from the recent bout of planetary tremors that have occurred over the last 4 months. Below are the latest telemetry seismic data readings from (top) Antarctica and Greenland (bottom).
