Beat me to it. Wouldn't this cause two separate
ripples? Is this the kind of event that displaces
water? I'm not too hip on this, so please pardon
my ignorance.

My cousin in Yokosuka-shi, Kanagawa, Japan posted on Face Book that it was intense!
Weird...the other week I told my boyfriend to predict a date that a big Quake would hit this month, I said March 11, he said March 15, knew I would be right on mine for some reason!

This is what the LA Times is reporting...

LA TIMES




Japan's meteorological agency warns that a tsunami as high as 20 feet could strike the coast near Miyagi prefecture, closest to the epicenter.


It's amazing, wasn't it just yesterday that millions of fish washed up in California. I am definately in the mindset that Earth changes is the reason for sudden animal die offs.

Oh and USGS has now changed it to 1 7.9 earthquake, so that's good. Less chance for major damage and extra tsunami waves.

News channels are showing pictures of cars near a coast in the water...they aren't being really clear as to where that is at.

Looks like water is up to second floors of buildings...crazy.

Looks like the bridge is about to go...or maybe half of it already did....hard to tell.


Seems like the Tsunami will be worse than the earthquake itself.

Saw it on the local news in LA that 10' waves just hit, but not sure where
as I was in the other room.

Where is this vid on CNN?
