What else can I say..
They were also hit by a rather large tsunami. You can really see it coming it at 2:11 mark.
Really scary stuff. Hawaii seems to be expecting a wave at around 7AM EST.
Aye it's not looking good
Tsunami warnings have been issued for Hawaii, phillippines, taiwan, Russia, Australia, and more. Japan had a 20+ ft tsunami shortly after the initIal quake, and a few more since then. Been watching this on CNN since the quake happened about 3 hours ago.
Scary to watch houses being swept away like that.
This video is insane.
It's absolutely terrifying to see that much water coming in that fast.
That truck driver on the bridge at the end of the video is insane. He was driving right into the center of it. The rest of the drivers look like candidates for curiosity-killed-the-cat competition judging from the clip.
As a Koi keeper I have long standing ties and friends in Japan.
Fortunately Niigata seems to have gotten off lightly, though you can see the effect it had in one Koi farm here.
The sheer energy and power of earthquakes and tsunamis are mind boggling.
Hopefully more people managed to get away from the main coastal areas as it struck during the afternoon, the devastation must be terrible
Dutch though ..
But I am quite worried about this plant warming up and there's no normal power or whatever to cool it down.
oh yeah. and it's on fire.
Dreadful for all involved.
These images show just how bad it is.
Hadn't had the news on this morning, heard about it on the radio whilst out in town.
Dreadful, truly dreadful.
It was almost surreal, to watch live, as that wall of water crashed onto the land, and take whole buildings, bridges, cars, etc with it.
Any news from Hawaii?
None yet, except they're under a tsunami alert, due to hit sometime this morning.
No news at work...just wondering.
If I hear of anything from Hawaii, I'll be sure to post it here for you.
