Did a self-described non-event tagged with "newsflash" just go green?

Are you sure I shouldn't panic, subby? Wait. Let me check Fox news. They'll tell me the truth.

Yep, earthquakes above 4.5 get passes on the grounds that the earth moved for her too.

The story has the "news" tag, not the "newsflash" tag. No automatic email alert, etc etc

There could be giant cracks opened up in the Earth which released huge monsters so let's just not get ahead of ourselves here.

I suppose when you've ridden out a 9.0 earthquake, a 6.4 is yawn worthy.

Because if theres one thing we learned from the Godzilla movies, its that you can trust them when they tell you everything is fine

If it's not a 7 or above, it's not a cause for alarm in Japan.

While 6.4 would cause serious damage to areas not designed to handle earthquakes ... it is nothing to Japan. They have been building to very high earthquake standards for quite a while now.

I thought I read they've been having aftershocks in the 3-6 point range ever since the big one.

Yes, Mr. Sparkle has banished the Earthquake to the Land of Wind and Ghosts.
