Massive Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan

Forums - General Discussion - Massive Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan

The devastation is aweful to behold.

My thoughts and prayers to our affected Japan members.

Tsunami warnings for more or less the entire Pacific.

Is this something really that uncommon in Japan?

When buildings are floating off into the distance and half a city bursts into flames, I'd like to think that's pretty uncommon.



Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.

Earthquakes are common, but something of this magnitude indeed is uncommon.

I'm lucky, because I live in the South and we felt nothing here. But I hope the other members in the affected areas are OK.

Terrible desaster, aparently at 8.9 it's the largest quake ever recorded in Japan.

According to Twitter Kojima is alright

Man I knew Japan was prone to Earthquakes but this is huge. I was watching the video footage on BBC, it was insaine they followed a tital wave into the city as it destroyed buildings and washed away cars. I hope Canada and the US and other countries send aid immediatly. This is way worse then New Orleans, heck I'd expect the US troops stationed in Japan to be fully mobalized to assist the Japanese army. Canada always offers to send troops from or PRT units.

I'm sure aid organisations will be on this very fast. I just hope the international community can work together to help our Japanese brothers.

Its good to see Manuel's okay, any other users from Japan? Are you okay?

Al-jazeera reported 25-30 confirmed casualties but after seeing the footage, good god I hope they were able to evacuate the people early.
