earthquake / tsunami

There was an earthquake north of Tokyo followed by a tsunami. I was in Nagoya today, far west side of Tokyo and was not affected.Northern Japan got hit really hard, cars are being washed away, fuel storage is on fire, cities flooded.... I just wish one of these stations would broadcast some news in English.Above is the fuel depot, seen on Japanese news. This is mid-day shortly after the tsunami.Everyone is playing it safe, above is live at Tokyo station with hard hat. Many trains around Tokyo shutdown operation.
