OMG Earthquake?

Recommended Posts

How come there are no numbers about the approximate number of victims anywhere? Am I just missing them or something?

Too soon to find out.

This all has to settle before anyone can even focus on that at the moment unfortunately. You can literally see people driving/running away from the wave atm.

I had a friend who was a peacekeeper. He had to go dig out bodies....this is going to happen in Japan soon.

This makes me so sad. My home country being destroyed...

I'm without a TV, so I can't watch any of the footage besides the one 2.5 minute video I watched from the OP's post.

Regardless, I hope the people escape the worst of it and recover quickly. They're quite the resilient nation.

i only have basic cable.. Colon Dee posted live stream

One woman has died so far due a collapsed building according to my feed.

DEFINITELY pray for the people in Japan!

EDIT: this puts so much perspective into things, about what's really important (like someone else said earlier)

I can't even IMAGINE what it's like to go through something like that (too terrified to look)

God bless that land and hope the damage/casualties are minimal and that their lives can indeed pick back up to normal

Japan is handling this well, thankfully. They're actually going back into their offices and resuming their workdays.. Preparations have been well in place ahead of this.

CNN says 8.9, NHK says 8.4? In any case, crazy...

Just chatted with a friend living in Tokyo. He says they thought their building was going to collapse. Thought he was about to die... :(

Yeah, Japan is no stranger to earthquakes, so they've been well prepared.

This is sickening to see the waves swallow up people and cars with people in them...
