Holy crap....now THAT is an earthquake. Breaking news....7.9 Earthquake in Japan.
"Japan was struck by a magnitude 7.9 earthquake off its northeastern coast Friday, shaking buildings in Tokyo for several minutes and prompting a tsunami warning.DAMN. The video rolling in is INSANE. This was a monster quake.
Japan's meteorological agency warned that a tsunami as high as 20 feet (6 meters) could strike the coast near Miyagi prefecture, closest to the epicenter. Smaller tsunamis of up to 50 centimeters reached some coastal communities, the agency said."
UPDATED: They are now calling this an 8.8. You cannot even conceive an earthquake of this size. Having been in a 7.1 and a 7.3.....I cannot even imagine the total devastation. 8.8.
I'll tell you those Japs are stoic people. No panic in the streets. None. They are going to work and picking up already.
