Thread: 9.0 earthquake hits Japan

  1. #1

    Default 9.0 earthquake hits Japan

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/...ry?id=13110884

    No "major damage," but what I've seen of the coastal areas that were affected by tsunami was bad to say the very least, and shit was pretty scary for people in all areas that were hit. Here's hoping that casualties stay low.

    Here is a growing spreadsheet of survivors for anyone wondering: http://tinyurl.com/japanspreadsheet

    Anyone here get caught in it?

    I'm far enough removed from it, but still felt some very intense shakes (I'm from Southern California) and there is a small tsunami warning in the neighboring town. Nothing too serious over here, but some of the footage from up north is frightening.

    Holy shit!
    That's terrible. There's also a tsunami warning for Hawaii. I wish all the affected people the best and hope everyone stays alive.

    Two quick things:
    -CNN has been abysmal in its coverage of this so far.
    -This looks like New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina. Except this stretches for miles and miles and miles. Just devastating.

    Has there been a causality count or estimation? I've been looking around, and nothing has been mentioned.

    Tsunami is expected to arrive here in Hawaii at about 3:00 A.M. Hopefully it ends like the last tsunami warning.

    These sirens are starting to become nostalgic.

    I think he's in Japan, and he meant that the shakes were intense even for a SoCal native.
    I hope the damage will be put at a minimum.
    And I'll keep my thoughts out for the other countries that can be affected.
