An 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit Japan early Friday, triggering tsunami warnings and sending people fleeing out of buildings in the capital.

 

Its epicenter was 373 kilometers (231 miles) from Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey said.

I hope the casualities are not as devastating as some of the pictures I saw seem to imply.

Apparently there was an aftershock right in Tokyo too?

Looks really bad from the live footage. Just saw a house where some people were waving towels frantically out the window to get the attention of the copter.

Man, I feel really bad for those people. :unsure: It sucks to

have a very advanced country to suffer more than 20% of all major earthquakes.

Wasn't there a 7.1 magnitude earthquake in the same area just the other day?

 

Anyway, it seems that this was the major earthquake that Japan has been preparing for for years? I remember reading that a major earthquake has been 70 years overdue for Japan. :?:

Bad news dude, we're getting battered by waves right now. It's ridiculous.

Just watching the live coverage on BBC News 24, the images and videos are scary stuff especially the waves carrying burning buildings and massive debris.

Tsunami alerts are in place in Russia, Indonesia, The Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, Peru and Hawaii.

My thoughts go out to everyone affected.

Was watching a live feed of it before and it reminded me of disaster movies. And apparently people are stuck in trains with no light (Can't open doors because of no electricity). Good luck everyone affected.

:[ This is bad, so bad.

 

Now, maybe someone else here is knowledgeable on this subject, a youtube commentor left an interesting though. Apparently there was a HAARP testing today, and anytime there is a HAARP test something messed up like this happened. I have heard of HAARP before and it could make sense, I mean 10 years ago I don't recall these nasty disasters occurring so frequently.

Does it suck less when it's a "less advanced" country?

 

Hope the death toll stays pretty low...they're saying it's in the 40's at the moment.

Admittedly it has lesser economic repercussions on other countries, but your point still stands.

Perhaps less densely populated would have been a better way to put that.

 

Best of luck to anyone in the area.

I'd say it's better when it hits an "advanced" country. The death toll in Japan is minuscule compared to Haiti, for example...and they're much better equipped to deal with it. Obviously, ideally no earthquakes would hit at all...

There is also a red alert from one of the nuclear power plants not to far from Tokyo. The cooling generator for the reactor was damaged by the quake, and the entire station is at high risk for nuclear fallout. Currently all pro-cations are being taken to keep the station safe, but nothing can be guaranteed at the moment.

 

We have family in Japan, not far from Tokyo, and we were unable to reach them. I am really scared :(

That sucks :(

 

That's really bad news - hopefully they manage to shut it down properly...in a country as small as japan (land mass wise) an explosion at a power plant could be devastating.
