    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.

    MANY Tsunami Warnings issued:


    http://www.weather.gov/ptwc/

    TSUNAMI WARNING ISSUED FOR JAPAN, RUSSIA AND OTHER REGIONS » Breaking News | Wire Update News | News Wires -

    Basically, if you are near the coastline anywhere in this region, (as far away as Hawaii)...RUN...for the HILLS!!!!


    -After you’ve turned the page of slight annoyance into total acceptance,
    you’re well over ½ way there.

    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?
