I think Mother Earth has had enough of us.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Damn! I'm reading 8.8 damned.gif


Japan hit by massive earthquake

A powerful earthquake has struck off Japan's north-eastern coast, shaking buildings in Tokyo 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 and ships as it surged through a coastal town.

BBC

Isn't there a tsunami warning for the American west coast?

Damn.

At least it wasn't in downtown Tokyo.

Oddly enough, I was just talking to my co-workers about the above sea level elevations of some of the S Pacific Islands. I mentioned that I built my safe -house at the 900 ASL height. I heard of this incident on the way home from work shortly after.

Regarding your 900 ASL height, are you talking feet or meters? bozo.gif
