I am watching breaking news now..it looks very, very bad.
The tsunami looks crazy! It's just pushing anything in its path.
Me too. Switched on the TV for the breakfast news ... to be greeted with images of that wave sweeping across the countryside. Anyone or anything in the path of that .... it just doesn't bear thinking about.

Its being reported as one of most powerfull in recorded history an amazing 8.9 richter... the exact ranking varies over various sources but I saw in TV claiming it as the 4th strongest in recorded history.
Its amazing, considering the scale, how well Japan seems to have managed. Its truly a quake-ready country as far as such a thing is feasible
Something like this in most other countries would have much more catastrophic results... Nontheless a very nasty hit. I hope the situation stabilizes and Japan recover quickly.
