    2011 quake puts pressure on Mount Fuji

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-09-0...-quake/4247160

    "Scientists say last year's earthquake in Japan has greatly increased the pressure of the magma chamber underneath Mount Fuji.
    The volcano last erupted in 1707, less than two months after a large earthquake.
    That blast scattered ash and cinders as far away as Tokyo, 100 kilometres from the volcano.
    Experts at Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention say there is heightened pressure under Mount Fuji due to last year's devastating earthquake and aftershocks.
    The magma chamber is about 15 kilometres underground and it is feared the increase in pressure could trigger an eruption. "

    Bugger, not good news.

    Yeah, tugboat, but the good news is that it took an American news outlet about one and a half years to report on something that...


    Hey, there's another tall boy in the the back of the fridge! More good news tonight...

          Actually, that report is due to the recent news
          http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/nn20120907a3.html

          Here is an (I believe) somewhat knowledgeable blog talking about this latest:

          So, yeah, more pressure in the magma chamber. Sleep tight!

              Have to agree with you on that. The guy's ramblings from Tokeeyo Town are a joke.

                But it's ok friend, I know that not all gaijins here have room temperature IQs. Try listening again more careful.
                Mt. Fuji has erupted many times in history and Edo/Tokyo is still here. An eruption and earthquake will cause all kinds of problems, but why lose any sleep over it. Maybe you haven't noticed, but this is Japan. The entire country is nothing but volcanoes and earthquakes. Either live with it or leave.
