My heart really goes out to the people of Japan. This video really shows the wave and devastation and even people in cars trying to out run it but sadly with no place to go....

In this video you can clearly see the sheer scale of this incident. But what this video doesnt tell you, is that the wave that formed on the back of this earthquake, probably hit land in many more locations than this one, and there is continued risk to other areas, islands, and nations, than Japan.
There is a moment during this video where the burning remains of what I can only assume was a fuel station or depot , is afloat, and on fire, the flaming,steaming ,smoking ruins of it sending plumes of petrochemical fumes into the air, through which the news chopper flies.
I have never seen such documentary evidence of the sheer power of tsunami before. I have seen the results, but this is the first time I have ever seen a top down , wide scale veiw of the devastating force of such a wave.
As powerful and shocking as the wave that hit this coastline is, I fear that in other locations, where the wave has had more time to accumulate its full speed potential, and size, this tsunami or group thereof, may prove one of the most destructive events in geological or hydrological disaster history.

This was largest earthquake in China in 300 years! Worried about Nuclear Plants. Worried a bunch of people dead! Worried that the tsunami could hit South America and US


In China?
300 years?
Pray tell... What equipment were they using to measure seismic activity 300 years ago?

Brother... Please!

It is NOT the end of the world. It's just another earthquake albeit a pretty bad one. The world has been experiencing earthquakes of this magnitude and higher for millions upon millions of years and guess what... They weren't the end of the world! Embrace some rational thought! Running around carrying on like chicken little does not contribute anything constructive!

Standing by for heavy rolls in San Diego California … securing the weather decks … got up at 0400 PST … live a block from the Pacific Ocean … no warning system in place here … most people still asleep and unaware of what’s on the way … reports say tsunami wave will be about 1 meter high … remember, this is a more like the entire ocean raising 1 meter as the wave hits … could spell real trouble in low lying densely populated areas of Southern California … been calling as many people as possible … trying to get the word out

Apparently this could get a hell of a lot worse as a nuclear plant is in danger of over heating...
My heart goes out to those poor people...

God help the Japanese Nation.
God help Us.

What will happen when the tsunami hits the US West Coast? Will it be catastrophic? We will see.

Also; Obama changed his Pres Conference to 9:30PST; Is he allowing time for the Disaster to develop and affect the US?

Well the waves haven't really caused much damaged in other countries.

Clif High (halfpasthuman.com), web Bot project indicated
that the Richter scale was recently changed by a magnitude of 1.0 That means 8.9 is in fact 9.9 of the previous scale. If anyone finds evidence to that effect it would be great to share...

Don't forget that in the Islands, the waves are measured from the back, not the face.
