TOKYO (Reuters) – A strong earthquake jolted northeastern Japan on Sunday, and workers at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant were evacuated after an alert for a tsunami of 50 cm was issued by the country’s metreological agency.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.3.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, public broadcaster NHK said. The area was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami in March which destroyed the Fukushima power plant and triggered a radiation crisis.
The new ICE memorandum restricting detainment of illegal aliens only when they pose a “national security risk” are already being implemented on the ground! Here, Beaver Meadows, PA cops nab illegals for multiple offenses: assault (in MD), driving w/o license or insurance, reckless driving, etc., and the illegals wave and laugh at the camera – because they know under Barack Obama, America has given up its sovereignty, and laws will no longer be enforced against potential Democrat voters such as these.

Alex confronts the efforts of the corporatist and bankster warmongers to take their destabilization campaign into Pakistan and crank up the conflict in Libya. Alex also talks about the effort by people around Gov. Rick Perry to absurdly characterize him as an Obama operative for criticizing him for his inaction on TSA sexual molestation. Alex also talks with regular Friday guest, Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster. Chapman runs down the latest on the slowly disintegrating economy and other sundry topics.
A long-track LP or low precipitation supercell tracks over 100 miles across two states bringing funnel clouds, intense lightning, hail, and lots of blowing dust. This video package shot by BNVN Weather Paparazzi Tony Laubach covers the storm that started in the foothills northwest of Cheyenne and moved across the Nebraska Panhandle.
The opening scenes show vivid lightning strikes as the storm forms near I-25 north of Cheyenne. Next shots shows a snakey funnel cloud that developed with the storm. Following shots of structure and intense blowing dust from beneath the storm.
One scene included a non-rotating dust column with violent motion as the dust is drawn nearly straight up toward the storm with several buildings in the foreground. Next shot of structure/wall cloud with dust in the foreground. Next shot of a non-rotating wall cloud as hail begins to fall. Following shots of hail up to 1.25″ falling from the storm.
Several POV shots and shots of hail falling on the ground. Next scene of an antelope staring right at the camera in the field as rain/small hail fall on him (he’s undoubtedly wanting to hide in my car). Next scene of hail up to penny-sized in hand measured against a coin. Last shot of the backside of the storm as cumulus clouds continue to build as the storm marches east.
