It might be. I believe Godzilla or one of the monsters it fought came from the sea.

This one happen at about 11:30 last night. Woke me up, lasted almost as long as the 9.0 one, so it was somewhat concerning, although noticeably less violent. Epicenter was almost exactly the same location as the 9.0.

No tsunami though, and nothing was affected at the nuclear plant.

It was a 7.1, and they will be getting aftershocks for months, perhaps years, that's how it goes after a nasty earthquake. Fortunately they are very earthquake ready. Tsunami and nuclear ready.. not so much. But they are pretty solid against earthquakes.
