Japan hit by 8.9 earthquake (Tokyo affected)

Post by SouOfTheRequiem on Fri Mar 11, 2011 7:45 am

Around 12:30AM EST Japan was hit by a 8.9 Earthquake with series of 10 meter Tsunami waves hitting Northern Japan. This earthquake is a pacific wide warning...even Russia and Hawaii has fallen into warning. Japan had 20 minute warning to evacuate, which is not nearly enough time. Countries like Indonesia had no warning. Shortly after another earthquake with a magnitude of 7.1 hit Japan. Aftershocks of 6.1 are felt even 2 hours after the initial quake. As I am typing and watching the live-stream of CNN news waves continue to hit the shores of these Pacific countries. Fires have broken out in Toyko and are being evacuated, an oil refinery is on fire. Prayers to the victims of this disaster.
