A massive earthquake struck the eastern coast of Japan Friday afternoon, triggering powerful tsunamis that washed away property and cars. (...) Television stations showed footage of tsunami waves, measuring upwards of 10 feet, pulling cars and cargo tanks into the water. Waves crushed the mostly rural shoreline near the epicenter, leveling buildings. Even in Tokyo, 235 miles south of the epicenter, rail lines were halted and business workers headed outdoors, terrified by the aftershocks. Phone lines were down.
(I am sure NHK is jammed right now)
I hope all our members in Japan are doing okay, I know we have people living near the epicenter. I can't imagine what this was like.
