Is there is a policy to understate and downgrade all earthquakes unless the damage is severe enough that they need to state the numbers closer to their actual values?
The mega quake off the East coast that generated a massive tsunami was first rated by the USGS as a 7.9 and later upgraded to a 8.9 Japan’s Meteorological Agency have rated it as a 9.0
One thing that is certain and that is that the earthquake off Japan’s East coast and resulting tsunami, was tragically devastating.
Live Internet Seismic Server Service Suspended?

Does this earthquake fit with any alignment patterns observed for other recent big earthquakes?
The Moon was not directly in line with Orion but about 2 days ahead of that alignment. So at first glance it would seem to not fit the pattern observed so far for many of the large earthquakes in the past 10 years.
However the Moon is in almost the exact same position as the magnitude 7.7 earthquake off Kepulauan Mentawai region Indonesia October 22 2010 and the magnitude 8.1 earthquake North of Macquarie Island on December 23rd 2004. That is within 1 hour over a period of 30 days or half a degree.

Magnitude 8.9 North East Coast Japan
Magnitude 8.9 – Near the East Coast of Honshu, JAPAN, 2011 March 11 at 05:46:23 UTC
In the top left part of the image you can see the position of the Earth relative to the Sun as it approaches the position for the Northern hemisphere’s Spring Equinox.
The bottom left part of the image shows the position of the Moon relative to the Earth from the same perspective.
In the top right shows the Moon as it would appear from 100,000 km above the Earth. The only reason I choose to zoom in on the Moon was to make it easier to see the Moon as it passes the Pleiades.
The bottom left image shows the surface of the Earth as it would be seen from the Moon.

This earthquake also resulted in an Earth wobble, sending the world seismographs black for several hours.
Magnitude 8.1 – North of Macquarie Island
Magnitude 8.1 – North of Macquarie Island 2004 December 23 14:59:03 UTC
This massive earthquake is largely forgotten about as it fortunately occurred near a remote subantarctic island located in the Southern Ocean, approximately half way between Australia and Antarctica. It was followed 3 days later by the tragic Sumatra magnitude 9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami.
Perhaps after these big quakes, the resulting wobble is the Earth readjusting its tilt closer to the new position of the Black Sun?
Recently the mainstream has been publishing stories about the changes in Earth’s magnetic field. Apparently magnetic North is currently moving at a rate of 1 degree every 5 years.
If you take the view that the tilt in the Earth axis and the Earth’s magnetic field are both due to an external magnetic field. Then that is yet more evidence that the rate of precession is accelerating. Unfortunately the adjustment is not a smooth continuum but a series of short sharp shocks.
