The Japanese government has warned that the area around Tokyo may be next in line for the type of disaster-level earthquake that rocked Fukushima this March.
A review committee for the Japanese cabinet found that a megaquake double what they've seen before could strike in the deep sea waters of the Nankai Trough in the country's southeast.
The team issued a warning that a 9.0-magnitude quake could strike in the near future and release the biggest tsunami seen in 300 to 500 years.
In other earthquake news a 6.9-magnitude quake shook southwestern Siberia in Russia near the border with Mongolia on Tuesday according to the United States Geological Survey.
