Man, that is some serious destruction. I'm glad I live where I do. But then again I live in hurricaneville. I don't know why but I have a strange and odd feeling that something is coming soon, dont know what or where, I just have this feeling of dread like something is missing and not complete, like the Earth is not done yet. Stay vigilant people is quake areas, be ready for anything just in case.

Sky News

Is this the event predicted by someone on ATS of an event which would shock the world?

Kinda coincidental one thinks.

www2.nict.go.jp...

That is a legit website that many ppl use to show magnetic anomalies and disturbances. It says simulation because it is showing a computer generated image of the magnetic field and ionosphere.

I live 200 yards from the beach on the west coast and my whole neighborhood noone is going newhere. I am thinking about walking towards the beach to check it out.


I will not tell you not to, but just remember this.

A tsunami is NOT ONLY 1 WAVE.

The wave will come in, then recede. 2nd wave come in, then recede, etc. etc. The 1st may arrive, and then it is still very possible that a wave can come an hour later, that will be much much bigger. A Tsunami wave is unlike a normal wave.

I absolutely couldn't sleep last night and I fell asleep at about 3:30am CST and woke up with a text about this disaster. I've been glued to the tv and ATS since. Does anyone have a source that has a number of missing in Japan yet. I know it is early but they should have an estimate by now. I'm sure whatever number is released will be greatly inflated as loved ones are still trying to get ahold of them etc.

One of my oldest friends is living in Tottori Prefecture in southern Japan, and (while not surprising) thankfully she didn't feel it at all. Her boyfriend lives and works in Tokyo though, but I've heard he's doing well enough. I'll post any updates I get from either of them.

fukushima power plant "under control" according to the BBC news channel UK
so hopefully thats a ll clear


Its under control SO FAR - they can't cool the rods (which means there MIGHT be a meltdown)

They are running on battery power at the moment, but if they can't get some power to run the pumps, then watch out.

From what i've read.

300 confirmed, but estimated 88,000

Yeah i know that's a big leap, but parts of Tokyo are on fire, a dam has burst, chemical and nuclear facilities are affected and parts of the tsunami have literally wiped away villages. Ships have gone missing and a passenger train is also uncontactable. 88,000 people reported missing.

Thanks for the update. I'm not sure what to think right now. My relatives don't seem too concerned and think things are just getting over hyped so, they are not planning on leaving the area. Hopefully they are right and everyone stays safe. I have a beautiful neice and adorable nephew living there and I would be devastated if anything happened to them.

In case this hasn't been posted yet, there are numerous US military bases in Japan and I found a few reports on the status of some of them...


Atsugi rattled by quake; damage appears minimal

U.S. Navy Airman Andrew Matyas, 22, of Tucson, Ariz. was in a shop at Atsugi Naval Air Station trying on a new uniform when the quake hit.

“I felt a couple of jolts and I thought it was just going to be like the little normal shakes we have,” he said Friday evening. “Suddenly the shaking got more and more violent. I got outside as fast as I could and saw telephone poles and cars shaking.”

Matyas estimated the earthquake lasted several minutes.



Quake moves U.S. aircraft carrier from Yokosuka pier

Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington say the gentle rocking that signaled the beginning of the earthquake felt so familiar, they barely took note. As it intensified over the next few minutes, they knew something extraordinary was happening.

“It actually felt like we were under way and answering bells,” said Chief Petty Officer Bill Mason, of Damascus, Pa.



At Misawa, 'cold, miserable and scared people'

For several hours after the first quake struck, Misawa Air Base on the Pacific coast of northern Japan was in a blackout.

Just a 30-minute drive from Hachinohe, where a 13-foot tsunami wave pushed boats and debris miles inland, Misawa personnel had scrambled for the high ground, but the water did not come.

Depending on how high up they are they should be just fine, at maximum they are estimating a six foot wave, Crescent City CA, is a little worried right now with regards to this event. But most places will only receive at the very least a three foot wave which will and could cause minor street flooding depending on the terrain. I am sure your family will be just fine hopefully. If they are below that and live around the coast I urge them to at least sand bag.
