Unhappy Japan: Earthquake, Tsunami, and Nuclear Reactor Crisis **6 Months Later (page 19)**

http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapc...pt=T1&iref=BN1

Quote:
Tokyo (CNN) -- 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.


The quake rattled buildings and toppled cars off bridges and into waters underneath. In Tokyo, crowds gathered in the streets and tried to reach relatives via cell phone.
Scenes inside office buildings showed papers strewn all over the floor and people clinging onto seats and desks.
Such a large earthquake at such a shallow depth creates a lot of energy, said Shenza Chen of the U.S. Geological Survey.


A tsunami in the Pacific was moving closer to other shorelines in other countries, according to CNN metereologist Ivan Cabrera.


It triggered tsunami warnings for various countries, including Japan and Russia, the National Weather Service said.
"Earthquakes of this size are known to generate tsunamis potentially dangerous to coasts outside the source region," it said.



"Based on all available data a tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter."
The quake was the latest in a series in the region this week.
Early Thursday, an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 struck off the coast of Honshu.



A day earlier, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck off of Honshu, the country's meteorological agency said.
The Wednesday quake lasted as long as three minutes, but did not cause significant damage. It could be felt in Tokyo, 267 miles (429 kilometers) southwest of its epicenter.
Hope family and loved ones are safe. Luckily it says it didnt cause significant damage.

Just got in touch with one of my friends in Japan. Luckily he's doing alright.

At least one confirmed death now in the Ibaraki prefecture.
Miyagi perfecture doesn't have a number on their casualties yet but it's several.
A graduation ceremony was going on during the earthquake and the roof caved in... RIP.

OMG the AlJazeera live feed just showed a house on fire that got swept up by a flood of water and it was floating down the makeshift river while still fully ablaze! The water is just taking way everything, it just looks like a river of rubble with a boat here and there.

www.youtube.com/aljazeeraenglish

that link doesn't require real player like the other link

ugh, tsunami sirens are supposed to go off here in 10 minutes. If we do get anything in hawaii, I think they're saying around 3am.

I'm really in no mood to deal with this right now.

The whole Pacific area under Tsunami alert, and now it's red for California and Alaska... Awesome.

I'm packing up a suitcase just in case. Luckily the house is up on the foothill and if we get effected by this then we're f'd anyways.
