As of an hour or so ago, an earthquake of magnitude 6.9 to 7.4 (depending on source occurred). A 1.4m tsunami has already landed. More tsunamis with a height of up to 3m will occur.

Live Broadcast by the NHK: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/live/

Nuclear plant had brief cooling issues, already fixed. Was never a serious threat. The plant had a week of heating up before critical temperatures occurred.

Figured this may interest some of you.

Also... "The epicenter had a depth of 25km." NO IT DIDN'T, the hypocenter had a depth of 25km. The epicenter is on the surface -.-

Small rant.

Edit to whoever reported this: Yes there are 2 threads. One has information, one does not. I will let the mods decide which is more constructive. If I had wanted to make a hollow post, I could have made it before his.

I'm not sure that you can call a wave smaller than maybe 10m a 'tsunami'. If you can surf it, it's probably not worth giving a fancy name to.

Yeah I like your thread better...

Yeah the water around reactor 3 stopped circulating which is scary when you think about it. That really should just shut that whole operation down and seal up those cores. Just isn't worth killing everyone on the island and making it unlivable for thousands of years.
