Japanese Tsunami

Holy moly.

 

I mean, I've seen other footage of tsunamis before, but the stuff they're getting in from Japan right now... that is amazing. And frankly a little scary. I do hope most people were able to get out of the way in time, since Japan does have its share of earthquakes and knows how to deal. But an 8.9... at some point, there's not much you can do if you have a 30 foot wave coming towards you. :(

 

My heart goes out to those who are affected by this disaster. But it's not over yet. Now that big wave is headed in my direction. (Pacific Northwest)

My hopes go out as well. This was the 7th largest earthquake since we began monitoring them.

It's ridiculous. Japan has building regulations for dealing with earthquakes, so initially they're fine. But these regulations are useless against tsunamis, so there is no way to be totally safe there. It's not fair. It's nothing short of horrific.

I am more worried about the oil-refineries that are on fire. That's downright scary footage. Kudos to the JDF, they'll do a good job.
