Japan seems to be suffering from a strong string of earthquakes in the region today. No tsunami alerts have been issued as far as we can tell but the thought of 5 earthquakes over 5.2 is somewhat amazing for such a short period of time in such an specific location.
UPDATE: Another earthquake has hit the same area. that makes 6 in less than half a day
