as far as i now 8.9 and then a 7.1 aftershock.

can someone else confirm this?


8.9 is definitely confirmed.

I heard about a 7.1 aftershock on CNN but not confirmed as of yet. Wouldn't be surprised since they're still experiencing aftershocks.

OMG...Wow...that is scary stuff.. That wave just swallowed up a lot of people....This is going to be casualties in the tens if not hundreds of thousands...


No, Japan has tons of tsunamis, they're far more prepared than the countries that were hit in 2004 and this earthquake is a lot weaker than the one that happened in 2004 and is only really affecting one area.

Oh my goodness. Japan has several nuclear power facilities as well. That would be absolutely devastating if any material leaked out.

West Coast has been issued a tsunami watch, and I believe a warning now too.

It should reach the West Coast in about 9 hours.

Tsunami watch has just been issued for Oregon. Apparently 9 hours away.

Vancouver Island folks, better keep listening/watching for the moment.

I'm pretty sure I've seen a few thousand deaths in the random footage already being televised. While I wish you were correct. It would appear you are not.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

Hopefully the wave or waves dissipate as they travel across the ocean, before arriving here.

Aside from the immeasurable human toll......I can't imagine how much this would cost the Japanese to clean up or fix, for lack of better words....are we're talking about hundreds of billions or perhaps a trillion? I'd say it's a safe bet. There are so many cities just wrecked.
