My heart goes out to everyone in the area (many countries are issuing tsunami warnings now)! CNN is now reporting that the yen is now plummeting in response to the quake - coward investors ship out when the country is in need, typical! I wish there is something I could do to help. For now, all I can do is watch...

This disaster will sure legitimize earthquake preparedness programs... FEMA's upcoming event comes to mind... The pictures on CNN are showing people in Japan standing around looking shocked and confused during the aftershocks - it sure lends credence to the fact that no matter how prepared you think you might be, actually experiencing a disaster is a whole different ballgame.

Cnn coverage has been showing a parking garage where atleast the entire lowest level was under water. The water is starting to receed so there will be more incoming waves on the way according to the meteorologist reporting.

Japan issues top tsunami warning after massive quake (AFP) – 59 minutes ago TOKYO — Japan issued its top tsunami warning after a massive 8.8 magnitude offshore quake on Friday, with reports of 'numerous' injuries and ships being washed ashore by waves. The US Geological Survey upgraded the quake to 8.8 from 7.9. Numerous injuries were reported by police in Japan's Miyagi prefecture and there were reports of scores of cars floating in Iwate prefecture harbour. The meteorological agency issued its top-level evacuation alerts for the entire Japanese coast, warning of a tsunami of up to six metres (20 feet). A tsunami warning was issued for Japan, Russia and the Mariana Islands, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. The quake struck about 382 kilometres (237 miles) northeast of Tokyo, the US Geological Survey said. Smoke could be seen rising from a building in Tokyo port. Shinkansen bullet trains stopped when the quake struck.
