    That has be wrong. I've got a 7.1 Latest Earthquakes in the World - Past 7 days. An 8.9 would sink Japan.

    I stand corrected- Jesus.

    That is fucking scary. It seems to be moving so slowly, but the power there must be immense. It just takes everything with it; houses, burning factories, boats... there are cars trying to outrun it, but you can see it closing around them until they are trapped. Shit man.

    ^ Seconded. pucky. Excellent feed.

    ---Update---

    That gas/oil refinery that's burning. No way can that be brought under control before the other holders explode, surely?
