There is no link....... YEAH RIGHT!
Its all on the same plate! Surely if there is an imbalance in one place that rights itself ie Christchurch then there must be an imbalance placed on another area which too self rights itself ie Japan.
Basic Einstein theory... for each action there is an opposite and equal reaction. Now I'm not saying there is a direct link but surely with sesmic events of this scale it must not be discounted.

I am interested to see if later on in the next 12 or so months if the America's have an event, be it somewhere along the American side of the pacific plate. Why not.

So lets be careful out there, be prepared and make sure you and your loved ones have plans in place in case of any environmental catastrophy.

Hope that gets you all thinking

That's the truth Radar! They've been talkin about expecting a huge earthquake here on the west coast for years. We're just waiting for it. What goes along with it are the volcanoes here in Oregon and Washington, and whether they're going to pop or not. Yup good idea to be prepared for disasters. I'm glad you brought that up about the plates, I never thought about it but here's a click-able map of the world's plates. If you click on it, it enlarges. It's interesting that the west coast of the USA has little plates separate from the Pacific plate and one just happens to be on the region where I live. ....probably the bumper-car plate that absorbs rather than reflects....yeah I could be so lucky

Some racist bigot a55hole called Pat Robertson blame the tsunami as God's punishment for Japan to attack Pearl harbor.
He should have blame the Japanese for naming a town Obama instead..

Plick!

Here's a video shot from a hotel just as the tsunami starts.

Update: In the southern part of Japan, a volcano has just erupted on Sunday.

Hey mate you know as well as I do that there is always Pat Robertson who will want to get his 5 minutes of fame by saying some sort of racist crap.
The fact that he invokes God shows that besides being ignorant that he is definitely NOT a Christian. Give him the respect that he deserves and let God sort him out.

As for the people in Japan and other affected areas Godspeed. It looks like there is 10,000 ++ non-confirmed dead that they are estimating. Several small communities are without any survivors and thats where they are getting the estimates from- Chimo

Here is a link that explains what is happening at the Nuclear Reactors. Back-up systems can't work if the water inlets get clogged from debris by the tsunami.

Here are some amazing before and after shots. Now I know why 4 trains would be unaccounted for.

Here's an interesting read from a delta pilot flying to Japan trying to land during the earthquake.

Here's a first hand account from a helo guy over in Japan that the group
might interest the group. The author is a LTJG pilot flying the SH-60B
LAMPS. He is attached to the HSL-51 Warlords in Atsugi, Japan and was
actually the Officer on Duty for the Squadron when the 9.0 quake hit. He is
currently assigned to the USS Cowpens and is off the coast of Iwate
Prefecture just north of the devastation in Sendai. He speaks very highly of the Military coordination of the effort and the safety precautions that have been implemented.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it's been a couple days since I've written. They haven't
shut off email or anything, we've just been pretty busy. We started
helping with the relief efforts on our ship on Saturday after we got up
to the area, and I flew my first flight on Sunday. Our main tasking has
been to pick up supplies off of the aircraft carrier in the area and
take it to areas where people have gathered for shelter. As a
precaution because of the nuclear plant situation, the ships have been
standing off a good distance from the affected areas, so we are having
to fly longer than would be ideal to make pickups and drop offs.
Fortunately, we have quite a few U.S. Helicopters from multiple
squadrons and ships in addition to the dozens of Japanese helicopters in
the area.

The weather has been cooperating the last couple days, but it
seems like every day the list of sites that need assistance grows. They
have a pretty good system working though. The E-2 Hawkeye aircraft are
providing airspace control, the C-2 transport aircraft are flying
supplies to the carrier, and the helicopters are flying supplies from
the carrier to the sites. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't a
tiny bit entertained by the fact that the jets aren't doing much right
now. I'm sure not being the center of attention is killing them. Smile

So far I've flown 2 days of humanitarian ops, about 6-7 hours
each day. This usually translates to about 3-4 runs per flight,
depending on how far away they send us. We have landed on everything
from soccer fields to boat docks to foundations of houses swept away by
the tsunami. While it is exciting flying, the scope of the damage is
incredible. It reminds me much of when I went back to New Orleans after
Katrina, except for the damage from the ninth ward is repeated up and
down hundreds of miles of coastline. The people here are going to be
rebuilding for quite some time.

Despite the unfortunate circumstances, this is by far the
highlight of my brief career so far. Being able to help in situations
like this is the main reason I chose to fly helicopters. It is also
nice to be able to get away from the training flights for a little while
and do some 'real world' type stuff. We are only able to bring maybe
1000 lbs or so of supplies in on each run, which is no where near
meeting the needs of many of the areas we are going to. However, the
people we have helped have been extremely grateful, and little by little
we are trying to help them out.

The nuclear plant concern so far has been a non issue for us.
The Navy sent out representatives from their nuclear offices around the
U.S. to ensure that we are not being exposed to amounts of radiation
outside the yearly prescribed limits. While being swept with a geiger
counter for 10 minutes is a new step in post-flight duties from what I
am used to, it is well worth the precautions. So far I have registered
nothing above normal background radiation, roughly the amount you would
get from eating a banana. While I suppose this is good for me, it is
throwing a serious wrench into my "Grow my own Godzilla" scheme I was
hoping to pull off while I was out here. Oh Well. The bottom line is,
they are taking plenty of precautions to make sure we are safe while we
do this, and so far they have no reason to believe that we are in any
danger.

I hope that this has given you an idea of how we are doing out
here. We are doing a lot of good things but the scope of this will
require our help for quite some time. I hope that all is well with you.
Thank you for your concerns and kind emails. Stay tuned for an update
in a couple days!

-Steve
