a strong earthquake at Bali sea on March 11 ,2011 and aftermath of tsunami in japan

NEW YORK, March 10  -- An earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale hit Bali Sea on Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The quake occurred at 01:08 Friday local time (1708 Thursday GMT). The epicenter was at a depth of 517.90 kilometers and about 261 kilometers northeast of Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia, the USGS said.



The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said there was no danger of a tsunami, issuing the statement that: “This earthquake is located too deep inside the Earth to generate a tsunami in the Indian Ocean”.
Geoscience Australia and the Hong Kong Observatory also recorded the quake at 6.5
.
Seminyak local, David Trauts was tossing up whether to get out of bed or not as the quake hit. “This one wasn’t as big as the quake in Sept 2009, which got me jumping out of bed, and it was all over before I could make a decision.” The quake only lasted a few seconds but managed to wake up most people in town.

(CNN) -- A tsunami warning has been issued as far west as Hawaii after a massive earthquake struck off the coast of Japan.
Tsunami warnings were issued Friday for at least 20 countries and numerous Pacific islands, including Japan, coastal Russia and the Marcus Islands, the Northern Marianas, Wake Island, Taiwan and Guam.
People along coastal areas are urged to evacuate, emergency officials warned.
The tsunami could cause damage "along coastlines of all islands in the state of Hawaii," warned the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in a bulletin issued at 9:31 p.m. Thursday local Hawaiian time. "Urgent action should be taken to protect lives and property."
Waves are expected to hit Hawaii around 3 a.m. Friday local time.
List of countries threatened by tsunami
Tsunamis are a series of long ocean waves that can last five to 15 minutes and cause extensive flooding in coastal areas. A succession of waves can hit -- often the highest not being the first, said CNN International meteorologist Ivan Cabrera.

A tsunami is sweeping across the Pacific Ocean after an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck off the northeastern coast of Honshu Island, Japan. Japan's NHK showed footage of cars, boats and buildings -- some of them ablaze -- being swept inland in Miyagi Prefecture.
The temblor is the largest earthquake since the 9.0 earthquake struck the Banda Aceh area of Indonesia on December 26, 2004, causing a massive tsunami that killed tens of thousands in more than a dozen countries around the Indian Ocean.
Tsunami waves can travel at speeds of 800 kilometers (497 miles) per hour. The earthquake, initially reported as a 7.8 earthquake, was upgraded to an 8.8 quake. The epicenter was 373 kilometers (231 miles) away from the capital, Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey said, and 24 kilometers deep -- a relatively shallow depth.
"When you jump a magnitude from 7 to 8, it's not 10 times stronger, it's a 1000 times stronger," said Cabrera. "With an 8.8 earthquake that shallow, that close to shore, there will be more than one tsunami."
Earthquake magnitudes: What do they mean?
The quake struck about 2:40 p.m. local time Friday in Tokyo, interrupting a sunny spring afternoon.
"You could tell this was different, instantly ... you literally couldn't stand on your feet the ground was shaking so hard," said Matt Alt, who lives on the west side of Tokyo. "We have earthquakes from time to time, but we never feel anything like the literal magnitude of this quake."
Fires were reported around Tokyo, and a large fire at a Chiba Prefecture oil refinery northeast of Tokyo sent billowing black smoke into the sky, NHK reported.
Indian Ocean tsunami killed about 250,000 people in 14 countries. That tsunami, which washed away entire communities, caused nearly $10 billion in damage and more casualties than any other tsunami in history, according to the United Nations.

It began with a report three weeks ago of a UFO fleet being seen by witnesses as it moved over Japan's Mount Fuji before the individual craft fanned out across the area. This event was reported in all seriousness by no less than China's main government news agency, Xinhua (see their article here and our article here). Western Media steadfastly refused to report the event. The US based "UFO industry" also chose to completely ignore or suppress any information regarding this event, seemingly regarding it as unimportant: This publication was the sole English language news outlet that ran a story on this.
Shortly after, we covered further sightings in Japan (see articles here and here). There was no doubt about it UFO activity in Japan was unprecedented and something was happening in the area. For two weeks now our website's front page headline stated "Asia awash with UFO and alien events".  In a subsequent article we asked "The question now on the minds of many Japanese citizens is, if indeed these craft are of extraterrestrial origin, what do they want from Japan?"
Numerous UFO sightings in Japan continue to be made, right up to this moment: and are still being ignored by the West. We just received a second witnesses footage of the UFO fleet seen a week ago (see first video below) and close-up footage of what appears to be one of the craft seen above Mt Fuji (see second video below).
UFOs have now been spotted in the aftermath of the Earthquake, even on news broadcasts (see bottom two videos and take a look at this video from the BBC and note the object seen at around 1:59).
The connection between UFOs and earthquakes has been made by hundreds of researchers and academics such as professor Michael Persinger of Ontario's Laurentian University.
I myself received dozens of emails from UFO enthusiasts telling me that all of this alludes to an upcoming earthquake. Can this really be co-incidence? As I write, reports are filtering through announcing that one of Indonesia's major volcanoes has erupted and is spewing lava, forcing locals to evacuate. Indonesia's first crop circle was reported only weeks ago.
The question being asked by many is: If indeed these UFOs were under benevolent alien control and these beings were aware of the coming disaster why didn't they warn us?
Perhaps they did, but we weren't listening.
It is time the connection between UFOs and earthquakes is taken seriously. If it is being taken seriously, the public deserves to know.

Stories on the aftermath of tsunami in Japan
 
Back from her US trip Prime Minister Julia Gillard says Australia stands ready to help in any way we can. A team of about 75 search-and-rescue workers as well as sniffer dogs just back from Christchurch is due to leave Brisbane today in the first of what could be a series of Australian contingents.
            2.11am US President Barack Obama reiterated the US's offer of assistance to Japan saying he was "heartbroken" by the scenes of devastation emerging from the area.
"We will stand with Japan in the difficult days ahead," US President Barack Obama
2.07am Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said he considered it his country's "moral responsibility" to help Japan and ordered the government to increase energy supplies to the country. Russia said yesterday that it was ready to divert some 6000 megawatts of electricity from its operations to help Japan deal with their power shortfall.

            Monday, 12:10pm  Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan says this is the country's worst disaster since World War II and calls on the country to remain strong.
The current situation of the earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear plants is in a way the most severe crisis in the past 65 years since World War II. Whether we Japanese can overcome this crisis depends on each of us. I strongly believe that we can get over this great earthquake and tsunami by joining together.
10.56pm JAPAN faces a "70 per cent" possibility of a magnitude-7 aftershock following the massive earthquake that struck its north-east coast.
Academics use 'Omori's law' to predict that the rate of aftershocks decreases in a very predictable way.
A government official today said the country faced a nervous wait.
"There is a 70 per cent possibility that an aftershock with a magnitude of seven or more will occur" within the next three days, Takashi Yokota, director of earthquake prediction and information at the Japan Meteorological Agency, said.
"The possibility is 50 per cent" during the three days from March 16, he added, pointing out that strong aftershocks have continued since Friday's quake and tsunami.
A magnitude-7 quake is capable of destroying buildings and triggering tsunamis.
            9.15pm The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has updated its advice on the situation of registered Australians in Japan.
As of 19:00 AEDT today, there were no known Australian casualties of Japan's massive quake.
Grave fears are held for a Melbourne man, however, who is missing in Sendai, one of the worst-affected areas.
  • Number of calls received in Canberra: 6499
  • Australians in Japan confirmed as safe: 1675
  • Number registered in Japan: 2551
  • Number registered in affected areas: 223
Japanese authorities are urging anyone who lives within 20km of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Okumacho (270km north-east of Tokyo and 80km south of Sendai) to evacuate this area immediately as a precautionary measure.
The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency advises there is no immediate threat to the health of those outside the precautionary 20km evacuation zone.
Concerned friends and relatives of Australians residing in Japan should contact DFAT's 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre on 1300 555 135. If calling from overseas, the number is +61 2 6261 3305.
7.50pm Japan has asked Russia for more energy supplies as the earthquake-ravaged country is bracing for electricity shortages following the disaster, the Russian government has said.
7.45pm A doctor uses a giger counter to check the level of radiation on a woman while a soldier in gas mask looks on at a radiation treatment centre in Nihonmatsu city in Fukushima prefecture.
             7.37pm A Sydney man has spoken off his escape from the tsunami, while a Japanese man was found miraculously alive after being swept 15 km out to sea clutching a  piece of his roof.
7.20pm Patients lie on the floor at a hospital to wait rescue and transfer to other hospitals at Otsuchi town in Iwate prefecture.
6.50pm An Australian woman evacuated from near Japan's stricken Fukushima reactor will be medically evaluated for radiation exposure when she returns home.
6.28pm Japan's top government spokesman Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano has has warned of the risk of a second explosion at the quake-hit Fukushima nuclear plant, but said that reactor three could withstand it as reactor one did a day earlier.
There is the possibility of an explosion in the third reactor, as in the case of the first reactor.
6.12pm A Melbourne mother is hopeful her son will emerge from the devastation in Japan, despite not hearing from him since the giant wave swept through the town where he was working.
4.36pm Japan's Meteorological Agency says it has upgraded the magnitude of Friday's quake to 9.0. The US Geological Survey is still measuring it at magnitude 8.9.
3.52pm The New York Times has produced a detailed interactive graphic on the explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant. It takes you through what happened step by step.
3.46pm The Guardian is reporting Japanese ministers ignored safety warnings over the nuclear plants:
The real embarrassment for the Japanese government is not so much the nature of the accident but the fact it was warned long ago about the risks it faced in building nuclear plants in areas of intense seismic activity. Several years ago, the seismologist Ishibashi Katsuhiko stated, specifically, that such an accident was highly likely to occur. Nuclear power plants in Japan have a "fundamental vulnerability" to major earthquakes, Katsuhiko said in 2007. The government, the power industry and the academic community had seriously underestimated the potential risks posed by major quakes
3.41pm Timeline from the BBC of how the nuclear emergency escalated at the Fukushima power station. Officials have ordered a 20km exclusion zone around the plant. Another piece here on the health effects of radiation exposure.
3.36pm Japan has committed 100,000 troops - or about 40 per cent of its armed forces - to relief efforts in the days to come.
3.33pm Japan's top government spokesman Yukio Edano says that radioactive meltdowns may have happened in two reactors of the quake-hit Fukushima nuclear plant.
Asked in a press conference whether meltdowns had occurred, Mr Edano said:
"We are acting on the assumption that there is a high possibility that one has occurred (in the plant's number one reactor. As for the number-three reactor, we are acting on the assumption that it is possible.''
3.24pm The operator of quake-hit Japanese nuclear reactors said the top of fuel rods were 3m above water, an indication of a possible meltdown, local Kyodo News service reports.
Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) warned that the number three reactor at Fukushima No. 1 plant was overheating and so much of the cooling water briefly evaporated that mixed oxide fuel rods were exposed to the air.
The TEPCO spokesman later told AFP the rods had been covered again.
3.12pm Local environmentalists are pointing to Japan's nuclear emergency as showing how dangerous reactors can be. This statement from the Australian Conservation Foundation's David Noonan:
"The terrible human cost of the earthquake in Japan is being made even worse by radiation escaping from damaged nuclear reactors. Nuclear is a high cost, high risk electricity option that has no place in a sustainable energy future."
2.43pm A report in from AFP on reaction on the web to the Japanese earthquake. To be expected, videos of the wall of water rolling in have notched up millions of views on YouTube.
Google's person finder service has also had more than 81,000 records of people leaving messages seeking information on friends and family by 2pm (AEDT) today.
The site is updating, in English and Japanese, by the hundreds every few minutes. Here is the English version.
2.15pm More than 200 bodies have been found at a new site in northeast Japan.
"We have received a preliminary report that more than 200 bodies were found in the city of Higashimatsushima," a National Police Agency spokesman says.
1.46pm Stories of the ordeal from Australians arriving back home in Sydney. This from Jennifer Jones:
"I was in a workshop on the 29th floor of a hotel. The chandeliers started to shake and we ran down the hallway trying to get to the elevator or the stairwell. We didn't make it that far and we had to just stop in the hall and brace and wait it out. Hotel staff were bracing us, this Japanese woman just had her arms around me, as I was against a wall.''
1.40pm Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has also offered his condolences:
"The Coalition joins with other Australians in commiserating with the people from Japan. This has been a terrible disaster on a massive scale. It's good that Australia has been able to offer some practical help."
1.33pm Back from her US trip Prime Minister Julia Gillard says Australia stands ready to help in any way we can. A team of about 75 search-and-rescue workers as well as sniffer dogs just back from Christchurch is due to leave Brisbane today in the first of what could be a series of Australian contingents.
"We're putting a big burden on their shoulders ... (but) it's what they're trained to do, it's what they want to do," Ms Gillard says


 Happy New year 2011
