    Could some please translate what does the color highlighted in the coastal areas mean in this streaming vid?

    No, Uzumaki means whirlpool in japanese. Naruto is just the name of the place where you can such a whirlpool in Japan (it is a tourist attraction). Anyways, the whirlpool and the Kanji of the city just reminded of a big washing machine. This is not to say that I want to make jokes about the whole thing in any way. Just my mind drawing unnecessary conclusions.

    It was up for two months in Odaiba, Tokyo, so far you are correct. But after that it got transferred to Shizuoka City (further west of Tokyo) and still stands/stood there as far as I know.

    I just found out about this.

    I know Japan is known for its earthquakes, but geez. This is downright terrifying. I hope things turn out alright over there...
    Thanks to PirateNeko for the avatar!

    There's good reason to be worried about all of them, since none have the same sophisticated infrastructures as Japan, so even much smaller waves and shocks can cause as much damage.

    Tare_chan -- our thoughts and hopes are with you and our other Indonesian AP folks too! Take care and be safe.

    Host brother and his wife both stayed at their respective offices overnight, but are unharmed. Still no word on Papa's efforts to rescue sister and her baby.

    Can't make out the kanji at that resolution, but I imagine that yellow-->purple-->red indicates increasing levels of danger/damage.

    ilman -- Thanks for the update! I think Tare is located in the south east, but I don't remember exactly. Take care, and here's hoping that your country doesn't have to go through this kind of nightmare so soon after the last one.

    CCC -- that's a relief about your host brother and his wife -- here's hoping daughter and baby will be found and safe soon too.

    OK, I'm disgusted now. Pearl Harbor is trending on Twitter, and the top tweet for it was someone saying "Hey Japan, google 'Pearl Harbor' Death toll".

    Seriously America?

    It's those people who generally fail at everything in life, can't properly talk to people and try to vent their anger over themselves via the internet. Sad creatures indeed. I pity them for their narrowminded shitty excuse of an opinion but Karma will get them back eventually.

    Not much damage reported over there, though the surf's risen quite some feet.
