Dude, this isn't the type of wave you can surf on, or would even want to. Tsunami waves aren't like normal waves. They are more like huge rip currents. It would be like trying to surf on a swollen river that just won't stop. It isn't like you see in the movies.

I feel nauseous!

Supposed to be finishing off translating a corporate annual report today - just 3,000 words to go. Great I thought.

But seeing those images. Imagining all those lives that have undoubtedly been snuffed out today by nature's fury.

Puts a whole new slant on things.....

This was the biggest earthquake to ever hit Japan. Just reported.


This is among the worst things I have watched on TV besides 9/11.

The fact it's unfolding in front of us and there is nothing we can do to help is belittling.

OMG....I live on the coast of Washington state. I will NOT be sleeping tonight.


The Tsunami Advisory continues in effect for the coastal areas of Alaska from Chignik Bay, Alaska to Attu, Alaska.

The Tsunami Watch continues in effect for the coastal areas of California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and Alaska from the California-Mexico border to Chignik Bay, Alaska.

A Tsunami Advisory means that a tsunami capable of producing strong currents or waves dangerous to persons in or very near the water is expected. Significant, widespread inundation is not expected for areas under an advisory. Currents may be hazardous to swimmers, boats, and coastal structures and may continue for several hours after the initial wave arrival.

A Tsunami Watch means that all coastal residents in the watch area should prepare for possible evacuation. A tsunami watch is issued to areas which will not be immediately impacted by the tsunami. Watch areas will either be upgraded to warning or advisory status, or canceled.

At 9:46 PM Pacific Standard Time on March 10, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 8.8 occurred near the east coast of Honshu, Japan . (Refer to the United States Geological Survey for official earthquake parameters.) This earthquake has generated a tsunami which could cause damage to coastal regions in a warning or advisory. The waves are expected to first reach Shemya, Alaska at 12:13 AM AKST on March 11. Estimated tsunami arrival times and maps along with safety rules and other information can be found on the WCATWC web site.

Measurements of reports of tsunami activity:

TSUNAMI OBSERVED ON DEEP OCEAN BUOY
UPGRADED MAGNITUDE TO 8.8


Tsunamis can be dangerous waves that are not survivable. Wave heights are amplified by irregular shoreline and are difficult to forecast. Tsunamis often appear as a strong surge and may be preceded by a receding water level. Mariners in water deeper than 600 feet should not be affected by a tsunami. Wave heights will increase rapidly as water shallows. Tsunamis are a series of ocean waves which can be dangerous for several hours after the initial wave arrival. DO NOT return to evacuated areas until an all clear is given by local civil authorities.

Pacific coastal regions outside California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska should refer to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center messages for information on the event.

This message will be updated in 30 minutes or sooner if the situation warrants. The tsunami message will remain in effect until further notice. For further information stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, your local TV or radio stations, or see the WCATWC web site.

So...has anybody in this thread tried to link the upcoming March 15th pole shift with this earthquake yet?

I still don't give the date any credibility, but if the world starts breaking apart then, at least we can't yell at God for not giving us a warning sign.

Me too. Horror for the people involved and fear for me and mine. Is nuclear radiation even now coming our way? What's coming next?
Got to get my emergency plans speeded up I think. But ultimately, there is not a lot you can do in the face of such fearsome forces.

I am hoping this has nothing to do with that... I like to think this pole shift stuff is just false predictions but either way it's frightening.
