Pray for Japan.
Under the desk time. I hope for the people along the coast. Cannot write a lot right now. But I think first wave of tsunami might hit in about 10 minutes. Looks like 3 feet in height but with these things you never know. Could be smaller, could be taller, could be sooner, could be later. We are getting aftershocks here now again. 3:30 a.m. Eastern 12:30 a.m. Pacific Friday. All hands on deck.
7.3 is no piker, that’s for sure
About 150 miles off the coast.. 22 miles deep.. I’m not too well versed in earthquakes, is that too deep for a tsunami?
Hold tight. Tsunami warning issued. http://rt.com/news/japan-tsunami-miyagi-quake-515/
