Tsunami causes major damage after
earthquake strikes just-off the NE coast...

Screen cap via Al Jazeera

massive 8.9 magnitude quake has hit northeast Japan, subsequently bringing a 4m tsunami to long parts of the country's coastline. NHK television reported many injuries and showed pictures of major tsunami damage in the north, with cars, trucks, houses being swept away in Onahama city.

The earthquake rated a absolute maximum value of "7" on the Japanese scale. A 10m tsunami hit Sendai airport in the north-east. Military airplanes were flying over the worst-affected areas to assess the need for rescue efforts and an em,emergency cabinet meeting was under way. 

 The quake shook buildings in the capital for several minutes and sent people out onto the streets. Japan's NHK television showed black smoke billowing from a building in Odaiba, a suburb of Tokyo.

The quake that struck at 2:46pm was followed by a series of powerful aftershocks, including a 7.4-magnitude one about 30 minutes later.

Tremors were felt as far away as in the Chinese capital, Beijing.


This video is unreal... -here-

Its almost midnite here in Alaska, we have a tsunami advisory in effect down around Kodiak island, I have relatives there.

My cats were acting funny earlier, I was trying to go to sleep, got up, went to bathroom, cats were doing strange things, decided to check FR, saw the news and now TV is on watching FOX, very terrible images.

Our dog was all weirded out here in Washington state. But it was earlier in the day with 45 mph winds buffeting the house and branches hitting the roof and deck! Probably no relation!

There is a geologist in California that tries to predict EQ based on the number of “missing dog” ads in the paper! (Used to be on Art Bell a lot years ago!)

American Constitutionalist to moonshinner_09

Woe to Nineveh !!

Touch not, or harm the God of Israel's beloved ISRAEL ! Neither touch the Lord's anointed one's the church, the body of Christ.

Think it not strange that floods will come, cities will be overwhelmed with floods.
Think it not strange when you see the Earth shaken, and see whole mountains crumble and the waters over flow them.
Think it not strange when you see the GOD of Israel ride the waves with his horse in his anger because you harmed his beloved one, his Israel.
Think it not strange when you see the Earth shaken and see world wide tsunamis.
Think it not strange when you see both the SUN and MOON stop in their place.
Think it not strange when you see the Earth shaken, that even the stars seem to move out of their place, along with the Sun and Moon.

Something whacky.... I went to the PNW webicorders (seismographs viewable on the web) to see what they saw with this quake. Almost all of them showed the point when it hit. But on the seimograph for Mt. Rainier at Camp Shurman, about 2.5 hours ahead of the 8.8, there was a swarm of tremors recorded. I looked at ALL of the webicorders listed, and there was NOTHING at ANY of them, only Camp Shurman.

Here's the address if you want to see.

I was kidding, as I think I’m safe in NY, but we do have minor earthquakes here, too, and it’s good to be forewarned by our pets.

Washington State has an Advisory, doesn’t it?

So your dog was also giving you an Advisory.

We could use some good news about now:

“All U.S. service members accounted for after Japan quake; no reports of damage to U.S. installations - Pentagon spokesman via NBC News”

http://www.breakingnews.com/

Keep praying for everybody else.

“on the seimograph for Mt. Rainier at Camp Shurman,”

What are you suggesting?

Sorry it hit you wrong Larry, but

a- this is the blog section

b- blog posts are as a general rule based on summary from various news sources and assembly of video and other media resulting in a presentation that saves you the time of looking and provides some commentary... as I do

c- I post ALL my Reaganite articles on FR IN FULL, unlike many... no excerpts. I ONLY send FReepers to my site for surveys or videos... otherwise they can read it all in full here at RR if they wish

d- Judging by the response, many people were freshly informed of this unfolding tragedy in Japan by my post when they got their coffee and clicked into FR here... in my mind I provided a needed service at 3am (jmho)

I go to pains to observe the rules, both written and not, here at FR, as to not wear out my welcome... sorry to have offended you

Some amazing videos on CNN. Aerial shots of water moving inland carrying fishing boats, large trucks, etc.

Anyone heard from American in Tokyo? I just wrote to a business friend who lives in Sendai, which is apparently nearest the epicenter. The reports of smoke rising near Odaiba (district on a man made island in Tokyo Bay with offices, hotels, and the huge Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center) related to a quake centered hundreds of miles away is shocking.

Thank you for the update.

Although I don’t know them personally, it does not mean I am not worried for their safety. I would be as worried for family members and friends.

Thank you again.
