The BBC's Mark Worthington says many people in Japan are becoming increasingly concerned about what is going to happen in the future

Another earthquake off the north-east coast of Japan has shaken the already devastated region.

The 6.5-magnitude quake, 109km (67 miles) east of the badly-damaged port city of Sendai, prompted a brief warning of a possible small tsunami.

A much stronger earthquake on 11 March and the powerful tsunami it triggered killed more than 10,000 people and left many thousands more missing.

Workers are battling to stop radiation leaks at a badly damaged nuclear plant.

There have been no reports of damage or injuries from the latest earthquake, which struck at 0723 on Monday (2223 GMT Sunday), according to the US Geological Survey.

The Japan Meteorological Agency warned that a tsunami of 50cm (18 inches) could hit Miyagi prefecture but later lifted the advisory.

One word: Volcano

A total of 13 volcanoes all over Japan are showing unusual activity, including Mt Fuji. I read that experts said the next 2 months will be critical.

O.o sauce on this? Makes sense, anything to read?

On topic: I think Japan and that whole area is just getting started on these earthquakes. I wasn't even surprised when I saw this thread.

God damn... Those poor people. I really hope that everything simmers down over there, and soon. I don't know how much more the country could take...
