    This looking as bad as the Boxing Day Tsunami.

    Makes you thankful we live where we do. Can't imagine what those people are going through.

    OMG, Thoughts are with all those affected, A big scale catastrophe in epic proportion's, Clearly will have a global impact. Hope the nuclear power plant is ok, If that radiation leaks into the water then it'd be like Chernobyl as well.

    Doom's day 21 December 2012?

    Is this the start?

    Horrific seeing the wave live on SKY, approaching the houses and the cars trying to flee on the road.

    That's very sad, However probably and hopefully a lot less than the tsunami that hit on boxing day, At least they're more prepared.

    It's scary stuff looking at the videos. Seeing the water sweep across the landscape and roads just a little bit on with cars driving down..

    Just spoke to one of my friends in tokyo and he's ok thankfully. Building shook violently but no one was hurt around him.

    Unfortunately, others don't seem to be as lucky.
