At approximately 1am eastern time Friday, 3pm Tokyo time, a massive -massive- earthquake struck just off the coast of Japan approximately 150 kilometers off the coast at a geologic depth of approximately 28 kilometers. The size of the quake is incredible in its enormity, now estimated at 8.9 on the richter scale. Labeled a GREAT quake. Massive rapid moving tidal waves are impacting Islands and the main land of the Pacific coast. Emergency Tsunami warnings are dispatched throughout the Costal areas of Japan and Pacific islands including Guam. The first Tsunami waves hit the coast within 30 minutes of the quake. Some of the waves are 20 feet ( 6meters) and beyond.
The initial Tsunami is massive and has pushed through the Sendai harbor as a massive slow moving wall of water. The video images are absolutely incredible. Full size cargo vessels are being pushed into the harbor city as an incredible wall of water moves in. Warnings to Russia, Guam and beyond are being sent. The aftershocks are frequent and numerous beyond the 6.0 scale.
MY GOD THE TSUNAMI IS HUGE AND WASHING MILES INTO LAND. OMG, OMG…. Oh the humanity caught in these waves is unbelievable. Homes, cars, factories, people, the wave of water is crushing and swamping everything. The tidal wave now estimated at beyond 10+ meters, 40+ feet. OH MY GOD, I’m watching it live on CNN via a helicopter showing the wave inland swamping everyone. Oh my, UNBELIEVABLE. Japan asking for international help already. Warnings sent out throughout the pacific coastal globe warning Russia, Guam, and beyond. The Sendai area is totally devastated. OMG.
