    Better hope the next earthquake isn't on the New Madrid fault.

    Helps when you have more journalists than the others.

Anything for ratings.
    Well the British guy is right. The port city of Sendai is pretty much swallowed up judging by the pictures from there.. 10 meter waves, throwing around tanker boats like toys.

    This is quite unsettling, I've got a friend over on the coast out here, and a bunch of friends/family down in SF.

    Hopefully it won't be too bad over here.

    No link but Reports are coming in that some of Japan's Nuclear power plants have had fires break and now are having trouble cooling the reactors. No radiation leaks.

    re: 8.9 earthquake strikes near Tokyo - Tsunami alert issued

    My boyfriend goes to Japan quite a bit on business. I am glad he's not there right now. Let's hope this earthquake and the tsunamis claim no more victims. My heart goes out to the fine people of Japan.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    From MSNBC:

    The Japanese government has issued an evacuation order to thousands of residents near a nuclear power plant rocked by the giant 8.9-magnitude earthquake that hit the Pacific Rim nation Friday.

    Japan's nuclear safety agency said the order applied to more than 2,800 people followed an government emergency declaration at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant northeast of Tokyo after its cooling system failed in the wake of the quake.
