Japan: “We’re Hit by a 7.9 Magnitude Earthquake” // US: “No it’s 8.8” (March 11, 2011)

On March 11, 2011, an artificial earthquake caused a tsunami at the East coast of Japan. According to Japan’s own readings and reports the magnitude was 7.9.

Minutes later the USGS comes along and tells Japan it’s 8.8 (which was later again changed by the USGS to 9.0-9.1, not by Japan).

SpuurM: “So wait… The sources in JAPAN (where the quake happened) determined it was a 7.9magnitude ….and then the US calls em to CORRECT them??”
