    The sky isn't falling. **** happens. Let's wait for more info. I realize Americans enjoy dramatic destruction because it gives them something to watch on t.v. but let's give it a rest.
    Its making others aware of whats happening. My cousin is in Japan right now and I called to let my aunt know whats happening over there. If i didnt tell her, she would have never known until 7am. Us talking about it and being aware of the situation has nothing to do with the authorities and their job. Being aware and alert is far from being disrespectful.

    You know what... I have four friends in Japan, two of whom are in the epicentre and have not made contact with me yet. This situation is very close to me. So kindly go **** yourself. You to come to this thread posting "sendai airport is now underwater!!!!" because this is ENTERTAINMENT and drama for you. But for me, this is LIFE and people I care about could be dead.

    SO **** YOU.

    What I need right now is for people to be calm and collected. This JUST happened. I am still in the midst of the deafening silence, wondering where people are. So while you are hopping around news channels and living up all the sensationalism bull****, I am still here waiting quietly for a phone to ring.

    So again I say **** YOU.

    I just don't like the sensationalism. I value the direct info, but not the "OMG" factor like Giant Noodle is going on about. People like that love the drama, but don't give two ****s who is involved.

    I hope your cousin is safe.

    When Could the Tsunami Hit Hawaii?
    Officials state that the earliest that the tsunami might hit Hawaii is 2:59 am local time.

    No, there isn't. It's going to be there in 6 hours. People will get out and to higher ground, unlike in Japan.

    Are you suggesting we should be panicking? How would that help this situation whatsoever?

    re: 8.9 earthquake strikes near Tokyo - Tsunami alert issued

    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a warning: “A tsunami has been generated that could cause damage along coastlines of all islands in the state of Hawaii,” the agency said. “Urgent action should be taken to protect lives and property.”
    Not panicking.... preparing...

    Relax, no one wants there to be panic. They're just concerned.

    re: 8.9 earthquake strikes near Tokyo - Tsunami alert issued

    One of my friends got a message through via the Canadian embassy. He is safe, but shaken. Apparently the school he teaches at is now under water. He said that following the quake there was almost no time to get to higher ground but that he was already in a tall building. No word on our other friend.

    I'm dreading the casualty count.
