About earthquake data

J1 monitors a Twitter account that receives alerts from the Japan Meteorlogical Agency's Earthquake Early Warning system. This system will then relay information about earthquakes with an intensity on the Japanese scale of 0~7.

Disclaimer of Earthquake Early Warning on J1 Radio

Data received by J1 that came from the JMA Earthquake Early Warnning (EEW) system should not be considered as an early warning due to internet related delays. It can be as long as about 5 minutes from an activation to the time it's available to J1 sources. While we make every effort to get out information, this is in no way a guaranteed service and is subject to interruption at any time. Those in Japan who hear an alert tone over J1 Radio should immediately monitor local radio or television broadcasts or their mobile phone for preliminary official EEW information. Therefore, REC Networks/J1 Radio can not be liable due to the delay or the failure to relay EEW information and J1's use of EEW data should not be used in replacement of official Japanese resources.

Detailed information about an earthquake is available usually about 5 minutes following the event from the Japanese Meteorlogical Agency:
