What a ground-breaking announcement.

I hope people in Japan don't have to wave their loved ones goodbye.

Either way, let's just hold our breath and sea how it turns out.

Ok guys, it's not that bad.

I'm in Tokyo, a few streets east of Akihabara. The apartment building I'm in swayed left-right for about 15 or so seconds, more than 10 but less than 20.

This is from NHK-G in the room

Evacuation warnings issued for local areas around Fukushima prefecture but as you can see from the numbers (brown block) the tsunami itself isn't that high. One of the reactor cooling had trouble but is now back on line.

Please keep praying for the local residents but things are not bad, helicopter shots of various cities show no fires or big tsunami going over barriers, etc.

(I'm having a busy trip, going to post something later)

how deep was the quake? 6.9 is quite a good size.

At least it happened in the same zone from the last time and doesn't has too much people. Just it kinda sucks due to the Nuclear reactors tho. Hope the few people living there evacuate on time.

That little tsunami going upriver was like, "Yo! We just checkin' the place out. We'll be back with our crew. You watch, yo!" That government official in his blue uniform..... Reminded me of Shin Godzilla... And Japanese reporters were safety helmets in the field.... I'm just waiting for Godzilla to splash his way out of the ocean behind the reporter. You know?

Is that the same area as the Fukushima quake, or is that further North of there?

Oh no! We're just saving up our "Quake Points." When we get enough QP's saved up, we're gonna cash 'em all in at once!
