9.0 Earthquake off the coast of Honshu, Japan

Tsunami alerts out

Quite alot of destruction.

I'm thinking damage/death toll something like Chile, if not up to 175% of that.

Horrible. And a nuclear power plant is in danger as well.
I just red there had been an after-quake (not sure this is a word?), causing an explosion at reactor 3 in Fukushima-Daiichi.

Red Cross is supporting Japan with aid.

Non-Believers Giving Aid - if you happen to be non-religious, want to help, and are tired of the claim that "only religious people give aid" etc., this one is a good site.

aftershock  ;)

Why are people only beginning to post today? Anyways it was upgraded to 9.0 a few days ago making it number 4 on the list of largest recorded quakes in history.

A strong aftershock, recorded 7.4, happened.


Another interesting thing is that...
The earthquake moved Honshu  2.4 m (7.9 ft) east and shifted the Earth on its axis by almost 10 cm (3.9 in).

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency raises the severity of the Fukushima I nuclear accidents  to level 7, the highest on the International Nuclear Event Scale.

Making the Fukushima accident compare to that of Chernobyl in 1986.

Radiation at the west coast is only 1/100,000 of the radiation in Japan
