I reckon the fish could feel the pre quake vibes that the instruments couldn't & panicked - all piled into shallow water, used up the oxygen & suffocated.

Looks to me like the Ring of Fire is doing some major realignment of late, so Californians might want to review their disaster planning.

So you need a hat today? What are you going to use to plug the nose with tomorrow? Boy is that going to smell!

I'd like to say that my heart goes out to all of the people in Japan affected by the absolutely horrible earthquake and resulting tsunami that rocked the country. It will take some time to access the extent of the damage the disaster has had on the country's people, infrastructure and economy, but I'm sure you'll all agree with me when I say that we're hoping that relief and recovery is speedy. Say your prayers!

Here in Oregon there wasn't much except in Bandon where the surge swept some people into the drink (all were recovered unharmed), some boats lost their moorings, some boats sank. Farther south in California the thing hit a bit harder and there were quite a few boats that got damaged and sank from the surge. No big killer waves in either case, it was low tide at the time and the surge created a huge suckage (that's my word) out to sea and then it came back in with a bone in it's mouth. The timing with the tide could not have been better.

Suz

Well, they have lost cooling to two Nuc Plants. One had an explosion that destroyed the building around the containment vessel (vessel still intact). Here is some news that I found amazing - there are still 4 trains that have not been located!

Here is a link to more pics from the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami.

Terrible terrible event in the lives of these people. As Elvis said, time to repay the favour after the Japanese sent people down to Christchurch to assist.

This was the 5th largest earthquake in recorded history. May have moved parts of Japan 8 feet.

edition.cnn.com/2011/W...index.html


(CNN) -- The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.

"At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).

The temblor, which struck Friday afternoon near the east coast of Japan, killed hundreds of people, caused the formation of 30-foot walls of water that swept across rice fields, engulfed entire towns, dragged houses onto highways, and tossed cars and boats like toys. Some waves reached six miles (10 kilometers) inland in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan's east coast.

The quake was the most powerful to hit the island nation in recorded history and the tsunami it unleashed traveled across the Pacific Ocean, triggering tsunami warnings and alerts for 50 countries and territories as far away as the western coasts of Canada, the U.S. and Chile. The quake triggered more than 160 aftershocks in the first 24 hours -- 141 measuring 5.0-magnitude or more.

The quake occurred as the Earth's crust ruptured along an area about 250 miles (400 kilometers) long by 100 miles (160 kilometers) wide, as tectonic plates slipped more than 18 meters, said Shengzao Chen, a USGS geophysicist.
Japan is located along the Pacific "ring of fire," an area of high seismic and volcanic activity stretching from New Zealand in the South Pacific up through Japan, across to Alaska and down the west coasts of North and South America. The quake was "hundreds of times larger" than the 2010 quake that ravaged Haiti, said Jim Gaherty of the LaMont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University.

The Japanese quake was of similar strength to the 2004 earthquake in Indonesia that triggered a tsunami that killed over 200,000 people in more than a dozen countries around the Indian Ocean. "The tsunami that it sent out was roughly comparable in terms of size," Gaherty said. "[The 2004 tsunami] happened to hit some regions that were not very prepared for tsunamis ... we didn't really have a very sophisticated tsunami warning system in the Indian Ocean basin at the time so the damage was significantly worse."

The Japanese quake comes just weeks after a 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch on February 22, toppling historic buildings and killing more than 150 people. The timeframe of the two quakes have raised questions whether the two incidents are related, but experts say the distance between the two incidents makes that unlikely.

"I would think the connection is very slim," said Prof. Stephan Grilli, ocean engineering professor at the University of Rhode Island.
