    Re: 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake in Japan

    I heard this earthquake is seventh largest earthquake in the world history.

    I hope many people in Japan to be safe.

    I sincerely pray that the Japanese people might recover from this incident. I don't mean a fast recovery because it will definitely take time, but I pray for their gradual recovery little by little to happen.

    For those who have no idea of what is the level of this disaster, check the video from NHK World: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=q4KRAKufHL4

    How do you survive a 10 meters wave? I was frozen while watching it.
    And it destroyed areas where they were growing food (it seems).

    Well, I heard they were mostly prepared for it so I hope there is no so many deaths. My deepest condolences for those who died.

    The wind is blowing
    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell

    8.9 on the Richter scale is huge. The Tsunami's and the aftershocks are to be feared now.
    I read in the online newspaper that it was the first one so high in 140 years.
    No country in the world is prepared for such devastating power.
    300 dead people found so far.


    Edit: this is the strongest earthquake in 140 years in Japan.

    Does anyone know how much damage it caused to other regions, like Kantou and Chuubu?

    Re: 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake in Japan

    if this thing has happened in my country the whole city were destroyed in minutes...
    this quake was thousand time stronger than the one who stroke l'Aquila. (And the city was nearly erased).
    Who cares about the manga?!?
    We have to care about the people.
    We are talking about a catastrophe
    sorry for my roughness

    Exactly like Sasuke said.
    Repeating, no country is ready for such strong earthquake.
    If someone can't have an idea of the destruction from the video, take a look at this:
    This is a residencial area (according to online newspaper). You see those small suqares in the image (top mainly)? Those used to be houses.

    Quote Quote:
    The impact of the earthquake that hit Japan this morning shifted the earth's rotation axis -> nearly 10 inches. It's the preliminary result of studies carried out by INGV, National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

    IMPACT - The impact of this event on the axis of rotation, said INGV, was also much greater than that of the great Sumatra earthquake of 2004, which was 7 cm of linear and two thousandths of an arcsecond angle, and probably second only to Chile earthquake of 1960.
    that's from an italian journal

    :/ 1m^3 of water is a ton right? Just imagine a ton rushing at you at 50mph =(

    Thoughts and prayers are with Japan. Not to mention other countries who might get affected as well. Will Australia get affected?

    Won't the tsunami reach philipina too ?

    It's quite amazing to see how calm the japanese are when everything is crumblimg around them. All the death are of course awful but I think it would have been much worse in every other place of the world

    Re: 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake in Japan

    Japan is ready for earthquakes, but you can never be 100% ready. But I'm thankful that they were at least a little prepared. It could have been so much worse if they weren't as prepared as they are, and if they didn't have the capability to mitigate a disaster of this scale/nature! ><

    The tsunami will probably hit some parts of Philippines, Indonesia (last I heard, which was a few hours ago, there were some waves but not too big yet), USA (west coast)... I think Aussie and NZ will probably be affected as well... I just hope these countries won't be hit too badly, that they are as ready as they can be to handle the situation (and evacuate their people!!)!

    Also, I hope there will not be any strong aftershocks in the days to come... Last thing Japan needs is more of where this came from
