So apparently, there IS an SMS system. Another quake just hit Fukushima and a warning was sent out to surrounding areas. Many of our phones went off with a warning alarm.

Fire breaks out at Japanese nuclear plant: Kyodo

(AFP) – 1 hour ago

TOKYO — A fire broke out in the turbine building of Onagawa nuclear plant in Miyagi Prefecture on Friday, Kyodo News reported, after an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck Japan and triggered a huge tsunami.

It was not immediately clear if there was a risk of a radioactive leak as a result of the fire at the plant operated by Tohoku Electric Power. Miyagi prefecture was one of the areas worst hit by the tsunami.

Kyodo also reported that an emergency core-cooling unit had been activated at Fukushima nuclear plant, without giving further details.

Earlier Friday Prime Minister Naoto Kan had said no radiation leaks have been detected from Japan's nuclear power stations after the massive quake struck the country.

Four Japanese nuclear power plants closest to the epicentre of the quake have been safely shut down, the UN atomic watchdog said Friday.

The quake struck just under 400 kilometres (250 miles) northeast of Tokyo, the US Geological Survey said. It was followed by more than a dozen aftershocks, one as strong as 7.1.
doesn't sound like there's a concern (google says the article is 14mins old)

Separately, Fukushima Prefecture, the site of a Tokyo Electric Power (9501.T) nuclear power plant, said on Friday the plant's reactor cooling system was functioning, denying an earlier report that it was malfunctioning.

As of 6 p.m. Friday, 25 people are confirmed dead and more than 250 others are injured.

All minor injuries have received proper medical treatment locally and those who sustained serious injuries were transferred to other regions for better treatment, according to local authorities.

The earthquake destroyed over 18,000 houses and apartments and left more than 49,000 others seriously damaged.
http://news.xinhuanet.com/english201...c_13773570.htm

WOW.... that's some major damage the confirmed dead number seems oddly low for that damage

could you imagine if Japan didn't have all the earthquake planning in their building designs

it probably isn't necessary to post about earthquakes that are 3.2. Those happen all the time.
