Magnitude 6.4, max "shindo" 7 (highest intensity on a scale of 1 to 7), centred close to Kumamoto. Some damage and injuries, but not a major catastrophe (so far, it's dark so the full extent will become apparent tomorrow). Continuing strong aftershocks. News is saying an empty Shinkansen has derailed. http://www.japantoday.com/category/national/view/strong-quake-hits-kyushu-region-no-tsunami-danger
Posted this on another forum, thought some here may be interested. Testing within the confines of the Kumamoto General Rolling Stock Depot. There will be an official press debut on the 19th of this month.
