Japan Slammed By 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake – Gets Tsunami

Watching the couple videos out now – the Japan earthquakes are hammering Japan right now – and there is a good sized tsunami destroying boats, buildings, cars, and surely many people are losing their lives at this very moment.

There have been many earthquakes recently – I’m on those email alerts – so I’ve seen about 15 earthquakes in various places roll in over this morning. Sad day in Japan – Best of luck if you are there or have loved ones there!

Is Thailand in danger of a tsunami?

Nope, sure doesn’t look like it. Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam all seem to block it pretty well.
