The quake struck at 2:46 pm Japan local time. As you can imagine, this would be a time of day when many families are separated attending work, school, and shopping. I'm sure we won't know the extent of the tragedy for many days & my heart is with those famlies who may still now be separated and facing an uncertain future.

They just reported on Japanese tv that at least one train full of people near Sendai has completely disappeared- probably washed away by one of the tsunamis.

Ok the nuclear power plant. What magnitude earthquake is it rated. We don't know if there is a crack anywhere which is allowing water to get in and contaminating anything...we have no new information

already did hit hawaii, keep in mind they still havent given the all clear as this could last as long as 12 hours as the waves bounce back and forth between the islands

it seems like kahalui harbor got hit the worst at having about 2m high waves, no reports of it coming inland very far, they are waiting for day to break to assess damage, expecting minimal damage to moors and boats at effected harbors and beaches

I just heard on CNN they are able to withstand a 7.5. The UN is closely monitoring all the sites as concerns are they may not have enough energy to generate the cooling process.

CNN is saying that an 8ft wave will hit the westcoast at 500 miles per hour. Is there any webcams on the coast? Sorry if this has been posted. Thanks...

I was working on my home business last night when this struck, I fell into a chair and thought I was going to faint, had the kids bring me cold water immediately, I was in a cold sweat and thought my blood pressure was going through the roof, dehydration sensation and vertigo.

Many people were sensitive to this, we are one. I am so devastated for the people directly affected by this.

Hope your right fox was reporting on some nuclear plants being in evacuated while showing the live footage I could very well b a refinery since I haven't heard any independent source that can confirm a nuclear plant has had any explosion although the possibility is not out of the question. I would also like to point out how fox news change to another live footage right after the huge explosion I would think they would stay on that camera

Interestingly enough last night the earth's magnetic field began to dip sharply south last night, causing some aurora to be visible in the northern states. We were also being impacted with CME's from the time of the 7.2 to this big one. The site that holds all the information on this seems to be down so i can't post it. However when I saw this I started to scour the planet for any tectonic disturbances.
