    I heard Russia and China are being affected too. How are things at the West Coast?

    Considering it's been hours I'm surprised that the death toll hasn't been too dramatic thus far. I guess people were prepared.

    Still I heard the damage was around $100 billion. I'm surprised that they can assess that so quickly.

    This is actually really, really good when you consider its freaking 7!!! I mean compare to Haiti where a 7 killed hundreds of thousands of people. Hell the New Zealand earthquake was a 6.3 and killed over twice the value of the Japan one. It's amazing how invaluably useful proper protocol and good infrastructure designed specifically for these events can be. The wonders of safe-guards.

    God save the japanese nation.

    Even though mountains won't ever grow in my region, rarely but surely I feel happy about not living in the middle of the ocean on the border of tectonic plates. Nature is too awesome of a force.

    With the height of the tower being more than 330 metres, do you still think any wave could be at fault? Whereas, it is very easy for vibrations from the earthquake to affect such construction as a tower.

    Yes, I realized my goof in applying perspective and physics.

    I know it's a useless wish but I still hope the casualties don't increase.

    I... actually find that quite possible



    Edit: I was able to reach all my friends there as of now. I'm glad they're safe. I hope anyone who has any acquaintances around those areas get their good news.

    According to the TBS stream it is up to 40 confirmed deaths and 45 people missing. And that is bound to go up way higher. Remember it just happened a few hours ago. No doubt that there will be hundreds if not thousands of victims.

    So please don't jump to conclusions every time you see such a figure and use some common sense

    AP reports: A 4.5-magnitude earthquake has struck Hawaii as residents brace for tsunami.

    There is a problem being reported with the cooling system at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima, and I heard that a state of emergency was declared---two minutes later I hear that the problem was fixed. I'm very confused.

    Yeah portuguese news channel are saying 8,8 , they also said that it has a good chance that it might expand to other countries during this day.

    Let's hope there aren't many casualities.

    According to that stream you guys posted it is indeed, 8,8.

    I read that there is fire in Onagawa nuclear power plant and the problem in Fukushima wasn't real.
