This is one heck of an earthquake and tsunami... I just found a video of it on YT if anyone want an idea on how crazy the tsunami is over there...


Starting at 1:15 - 1:20 it's more clear on how strong it really is.

Sad indeed. Glad I got a message on Facebook from my friend who is an English teacher there and he is ok.

And here's the link if you want to watch a lot of videos about that.

God damn it..

Just heard on the radio. Apparently, Japan is in full nuclear alert, as 4 nuclear reactors have problems to be cooled down.

This is a tragety of epic proportions. Glad to hear the JLP and OJ are okay, they are the two people I thought of first when I heard the news.

Hopefully the casualties are kept to a minimum and they get those nuclear reactors under control because that would magnify this problem beyond what it already is.

My sympathies to anyone who lives in Japan or has friends/family over there. I can't imagine how hard this must be.

Possibility of a meltdown there, but no explosion. Too many safety features prevent that.

this type of tragedy will not be enough to change the opinions of the World leaders to listen to the innovative thinkers pushing eco-friendly energy alternatives.

I don't know, I don't watch these videos unless someone points me that kind of video which really happens rarely.

This was a crazy tsunami. The force of water is so destructive, it's scary... imagine seeing that 10m tall wall of water coming at you at a crazy speed... hopefully you die instantly because of the shock or a heart attack.

Reminds me of 2004... I arrived in Thailand roughly 3 weeks after the tsunami... I was very lucky (contrary to 300 000+ people).

The power of water is so incredible, it's frightening. Those poor people.

This video is impressive. You can see that Japanese buildings are built to endure these conditions.

Aftershocks are an earthquake's way of taking the p*ss... Wife finally made it home this morning. Won't say this to my family but now the main concern among some people here are the differing reports on the Tokai and Fukushima nuclear plants Japan is understating the danger maybe so not cause panic, but they have begun releasing radioactive steam, meanwhile Reuters and other internationals are warning that conditions may be close to meltdown, this is unnerving to say the least.

Hey JLP man, very glad to hear that you and your family are fine. Hang in there man.

Are you in any danger from the Nuclear Plants, so far what I've heard they are only evacuating an area 10km around the plants right?

Hope Ohashi_Jouzu is alright. I'm guessing he's part of the area that's not affected (if he is in fact around the Kinosaki Onsen area) but I hope his family/friends are alright as well.

Apparently he is back in Halifax now so he is alright, it's somewhere on the previous pages.

I've contacted a bunch of my peeps back in J-Land, and I'm happy to report that so far none of my friends, nor their families, have been affected by the quake. I was living in Kansai, though (closer to Osaka/Kobe/Kyoto, unlike JLP who I think is near/in Tokyo), so most of the people I know were nowhere close to the epicentre. Most people have friends and family in Tokyo though, and I have a few former students studying there that I've yet to hear back from. A bowling centre collapsed somewhere around there killing 10 people last I heard (from a J-buddy who just went back there from Vancouver, actually... good timing), so I'm a bit concerned for sure. 8 point something was registered in Tohoku (a few hours north of Tokyo), and that's damn big. I've personally felt multiple 3, 4, and 5s, but damn.



Yeah, I've been back from the far East for a little while now. I should really update my location to: Halifax. Alas, my heart and mind are still there, not here, so...

The earthquake was so large that it's caused the earth to spin faster
