There was a 7.4 aftershock and another Tsunami Warning issued. This looks extremely bleak.

Perhaps one of the tectonic plates is really damaged. But Japan has been known to be a hotbed of earthquake activity anyway. Shame if another large one would happen so soon after the initial one.

It's just one of those moments when you just sit there and know you are powerless to do anything as everything is destroyed. It's terrifying.

By the way, minimum safe distance from a Nuclear Reactor when it goes critical is a 40km radius. If Koeberg in SA were to meltdown the whole of Cape Town would have to be evacuated, and that's just one reactor.

the tsunami is lame,all it did is shake the appartment,though some got thrashed,here in my area it was just lame.i'm like a baby being rocked on my cradle.though time by time,there7s still some shaking,i dont worry at all.i remember when it 1st happened,it shaked in about some minutes,while i was playing wc3 tft Dota online,and i got triple kill coz the other guys' heroes were sitting ducks while i am just holding my laptop while it's shaking,while the others probably go outside or got busy saving some property that is falling or whatever

and just an hour ago,it shaked again while i was cooking my food,but still no worries for me

Guess I am going to rethink my plans to go in Japan.

Oh and by the way to the person above me, what you said is pretty sad...
