Massive quake in Japan.

Thousands would have died today. The scale of that wave is beyond belief.

And there's a lot of other countries in the fire line, Hawaii, Indonesia, Taiwan, Russia...

So spread the word if you're in those countries. Get high and away from the coasts.

Here's a complete list: http://www.weather.gov/ptwc/text.php?id=pacific.2011.03.11.055508

Massive quake in Japan.

Automated dashboard publication U.S. govt. uses to convey earthquake damage (does not include tsunami damage):

....Mercy to the people of Japan....

Lol...that's funnier than it has any right to be considering the circumstances.

Of course I meant run for the hills.
