Can we please stick to the topic?

I've had a really bad feeling since these quakes near Japan started up. I was afraid all those 6's were just precursor to a bigger quake.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up. An 8.8 with a 6.4 aftershock.
I'm watching it on TV now & saw a building on fire.

Well, it seems you picked a poor time for it. Somehow it just seems unnecessary and crude at the moment. Save it for some other time.

Please stay on topic, this is not a topic for personal bickering.

Does anyone have a news article w/ the update on it?

Do you really think this particular thread is the right place for a joke? Seriously?

The least you should be doing is apologizing for your shameful conduct - however you choose to attempt to justify it as a joke FFS.

Looking on the USGS website there have also been some small quakes in Hawaii within the past hour.
Not sure if its related.
Anyone know?

Wow the water has flooded up at least 2 stories! Doesn't it rise, then fall, then that is followed by a tsunami?

So your telling me youve never made a joke how inappropriate ever? Maybe you needed it to take your mind off the deaths that are bout to happen because of this tsunami. No I will not apologize, because it was right at the time.

On topic: Where can i watch the live feed btw?
