    Japan hit by powerful earthquake

    A powerful earthquake has struck off Japan, shaking buildings in Tokyo for several minutes and forcing people out of their homes, witnesses said.

    Japan issued its most serious tsunami warning, saying a wave as high as 6m (20ft) could strike the coast near Miyagi prefecture.

    US officials said the 8.8-magnitude quake struck about 250 miles (400km) from Tokyo at a depth of 20 miles.

    TV pictures showed a wave crashing into the Pacific coast.

    The surge of water carried cars as it surged through a coastal town.

    Earthquake off the Coast of Japan - 8.8 magnitude

    http://english.aljazeera.net/news/as...607470826.html

    A 7.9-magnitude earthquake has struck off the northeastern coast of Japan, triggering a six-metre tsunami warning.

    The quake shook buildings in the capital,Tokyo, for several minutes on Friday, and sent people out onto the streets, witnesses reported.

    Japan's NHK television showed black smoke billowing from a building in Odaiba, a suburb of Tokyo.

    The country's meteorological agency warned that a tsunami as high as six metres could strike the coast near Miyagi prefecture, closest to the epicentre, and just a short time later broadcaster NHK said a tsunami of 50 cm had hit Japan's
    northern coast.

    NHK showed pictures of major tsunami damage in the north, with cars, trucks, houses and buildings being swept away in Onahama city in Fukushima prefecture.

    Friday's quake struck at a depth of 10 kilometres, about 125 kilometres off the eastern coast, the meterological agency said.

    Japan lies on the 'Ring of Fire'- an arc of earthquake and volcanic zones that stretches around the Pacific Rim and where about 90 per cent of the world's quakes occur.

    Several earthquakes have hit the region in recent days, including a 7.2-magnitude quake on Wednesday.
    Tsunami warning in various areas including Hawaii apparently. CNN has coverage right now, if you google "Japan Earthquake" you can see where the epicenter is.

    Watching CNN they just showed the water rushing over farmland. It was crazy just seeing it take over everything and push shit right out of the way.

    Buildings on fire moving across the countryside with the wave of crap is sort of terrifying.
