Two new quakes...

Earthquakes at 7:12 and again at 7:36 local, about 5.8 on the Japanese scale. Automatic reporting stations ranging from 5+ and 5- with a couple 4's and many 3's.

No word yet from Fukushima Daiichi. Stronger quakes like this are a threat to already damaged buildings.


UPDATE ....7:48 local Tokyo time.. TEPCO reports no one hurt at Fukushima Daiichi. Now performing safety inspections.

UPDATE 8:14 local Tokyo time... TEPCO and NISA are saying the quakes will have no impact on the Fukushima Daiichi recovery efforts.
