    re: 8.9 earthquake strikes near Tokyo - Tsunami alert issued

    I can't remember a time when so many earthquakes of this huge huge magnitude have hit around the world. And it is predicted that March 19th could be a bad day because the moon will be closer than it has been in 19 years.

    We'll see. I hope this is wrong because the San Jacinto fault is only about 2 miles away.

    Massive 7.9 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Japan

    TOKYO -- A 7.9-magnitude earthquake has struck off Japan's northeastern coast, shaking buildings in Tokyo for several minutes and sending people out into the streets.

    Japan's meteorological agency warns that a tsunami as high as 20 feet could strike the coast near Miyagi prefecture, closest to the epicenter.

    The agency says the quake struck at 2:46 p.m. Friday at a depth of 6 miles, about 80 miles (125 kilometers) off the eastern coast.

    re: 8.9 earthquake strikes near Tokyo - Tsunami alert issued

    TOKYO — A 7.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's northeastern coast Friday afternoon, shaking buildings in Tokyo for several minutes and sending people out into the streets.

    A tsunami warning was in effect for Japan, Russia, Marcus Island and the Northern Marianas. A tsunami watch has been issued for Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia and Hawaii.

    Japan's NHK says a small tsunami hit the shore near the epicenter around 3 p.m local time.

    Smoke was seen rising from a port building engulfed in flames.

    The agency says the quake struck at 2:46 p.m. Friday at a depth of 6 miles (10 kilometers), about 80 miles (125 kilometers) off the eastern coast, about 240 miles northeast of Tokyo.

    In downtown Tokyo, large buildings shook violently and workers poured into the street for safety. TV footage showed a large building on fire and bellowing smoke in the Odaiba district of Tokyo.

    The tsunami alert has been officially issued for Japan and Russia. Officials are still investigating if Hawaii is at risk.

    This quake has been upgraded to an 8.8 and Japan has been hit by a Tsunami that has caused a great deal of damage.

    California is now at risk for a Tsunami as is the Philippines and a wide spread area of the Pacific Ocean

    Both CNN and BBC are reporting this quake as an 8.8. Massive. Tsunami warnings have been issued.

    Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. An 8.8, this can not be good, if anything good can be taken from this is that it hit a well developed country with higher building standards. I'm hoping the loss of lives is minimal but you gotta imagine this is gonna be terrible.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
