Just breaking. http://www.kitv.com/story/30513573/no-tsunami-threat-for-hawaii-after-earthquake-north-of-okinawa


WA BEACH, Hawaii -
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says there is no tsunami threat for Hawaii after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake off the southern coast of the main island of Japan and north of Okinawa on Friday. The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting the magnitude is 6.5.

Have no idea if this will impact the game. No real indication as to just how far away it was.

Second report from google:

The U.S. Geological Service says a magnitude 6.7 earthquake has struck in the East China Sea north of the Japanese island of Okinawa.

The USGS said the quake occurred at 4:11 a.m. Monday with its epicenter located 68 miles north-northwest of Nago, a tourist town in the northern Okinawa Island near a U.S. Marine Base. Its depth was given as 69.8 miles.

The heading in the pic exclusivelee posted said it was a "Game Day" run .... so I have to assume it was after the earthquake. Hope so, anyway.

Karnowski just posted this photo so I don't think they felt it.

I don't understand that. The info came initially from the Pitt board and then google seemed to sound like it was breaking.

ETA: Apparently it was this morning and I guess it has no bearing as this marine base is in the south and the earthquake was north of the island.
