Exclamation 8.9 Earthquake hits Japan and causes 13 ft Tsunami

I'm watching the footage on the news right now and this is devastating. People are running and driving off as fast as they can in cars. They don't know it's coming and it's already swept up so many things.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Re: 8.4 Earthquake hits Japan and causes 13 ft Tsunami

Harrowing images. Some of the houses were burning as they were being swept away by the water. It's so bone chilling at the possibility that there are actually people dying on live TV. The tsunami is also expected to affect us here in the Philippines at 9:55 pm GMT.

Prayers to everyone,especially to the Japanese people!

Re: 8.9 Earthquake hits Japan and causes 13 ft Tsunami

Australia just got issued tsunami warning and I live on the east coast. We've got the reef so I'm sure we'll probably be fine, but that big an earthquake still makes you worry.

Re: 8.9 Earthquake hits Japan and causes 13 ft Tsunami

The quake went on for over a minute!
That's incredible.
Those were some harrowing videos I watched.
But then the tsunami hit and man oh man....
My heart goes out to all of the Japanese affected.

Initially, I thought this 8.9 magnitude was the largest.
Then I checked and discovered that the largest recorded was one in Chile in 1960, and was 9.5!!
