5.8R in E Coast of Honshu, JAPAN, <--As predicted here

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 struck off Japan's eastern Chiba prefecture, Japan Meteorological Agency said Saturday.
The temblor, which occurred at 8:23 p.m. local time, was centered off the coast of Chiba prefecture, with the epicenter at a latitude of 35.1 degrees north and a longitude of 140.6 degrees east, and at depth of 50 km.
The earthquake logged lower 5 on the Japanese seismic intensity scale which peaks at 7 in some areas of Chiba prefecture and could be felt in Tokyo.
So far, no major damage or injuries were reported, and no tsunami warning has been issued.

Residents in part of the Chiba region outside Tokyo reported strong tremors, with some saying the shaking had knocked objects from shelves, but there were no immediate injuries reported.
Public broadcaster NHK said no abnormalities had been detected at nuclear facilities in the region.
A spokesman for Narita airport outside the capital said the quake had forced a brief suspension of operations.
"We temporarily closed the runways but resumed operation after confirming there was no damage. The quake was fairly strong but there was no panic at the airport," he told AFP.
The quake comes several weeks after a deadly tremor rocked the Osaka region, killing five people and injuring over 350.
