Okinawa Far from Earthquake in Sendai Japan

There was an earthquake tonight off the coast of  Sendai, Japan.

People have already begun asking how we are in Okinawa.

All is well on our island and there is nothing to worry about in the whole Ryukyu Island Chain.

To the best of my knowledge, there were no casualties in the Sendai area.

The quake took place about 6 miles under sea level.

A small tsunami, about a meter high was experienced shortly after 6PM.

Tsunami warnings have been lifted so, all should be well, for now.

Those with friends or family in Okinawa, Japan need not worry.

The map above, courtesy of shows how far Okinawa is from Sendai.

The island of Okinawa is in the lower left-hand corner of the map.

Sendai, is well over 1,000 miles to the northeast of this Ryukyu Island.

 If you really need something to worry about, here ya go:
