Default Big quake in Tokyo expected in the next few years

If I lived in Tokyo, I don't think I'd want to live there too much longer:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/16681136

The chance of a big earthquake hitting the Japanese capital in the next few years is much greater than official predictions suggest, researchers say.

The team, from the University of Tokyo, said there was a 75% probability that a magnitude seven quake would strike the region in the next four years.

The government says the chances of such an event are 70% in the next 30 years.

It's a shame; Tokyo is a such a beautiful city.
