A massive earthquake has hit the northeast of Japan triggering a tsunami that has caused extensive damage.

Japanese television showed cars, ships and even buildings being swept away by a vast wall of water after the 8.9 magnitude earthquake.

Officials said there could be a 10m (33ft) wave, with numerous casualties feared.

The quake struck about 250 miles (400km) from Tokyo at a depth of 20 miles, shaking the capital.

The tremor at 1446 local time (0546 GMT) was followed by a series of powerful aftershocks.

Seismologists say it is one of the largest earthquakes to hit Japan for many years.

The tsunami warning was extended to the Philippines, Indonesia and the Pacific coast of Russia.

Tsunami waves hit Japan's Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, officials said.

Japan's NHK television showed a massive surge of water sweeping away buildings, cars and ships.

The earthquake also triggered a number of fires.

There were also reports of injuries in Tokyo.

  • I just went to Wikipedia and noted that the U.S. air force has aided the nuclear power plant that´s being talked about here.

    For the curious please visit wikipedia and search for the name of the power plant.

    I seriously suggest that all nuclear power plants operating all over the planet right now be shut down......especially those that can be shut down without any overtly negative consequences happening as a result.

    • Russia Today said at 11:30 am


      A blast has occurred at the Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant, where authorities have been trying to prevent a meltdown, Japanese media reports. At least four workers have been injured in the Saturday explosion, Kyodo News reports. Local television show images of plumes of smoke above the plant. Fukushima Prefecture official Masato Abe says the cause is still under investigation, and it was unclear whether there was actually an explosion. Earlier there were reports that radiation levels inside the plant have surged to 1.5 times their normal levels after the cooling system failed.

  • Asavari we the people of Iceland don´t have nuclear power plants.

    Humanity made an insane decision to permit nuclear power plants to run as houses designed to keep power from being used in this manner , just like the dumbass hydraulic power plants , designed to prevent rivers from being able to produce electricity naturally.

    • Bernard's Star,


      What is prayer??? Pray tell me!!

      Don't we still pray to God, and hope that s/he forgive us for the supposed wrong that we do?

      IMO there is nothing wrong in hoping that some higher powers are doing their best to avert the mistakes of the mankind.


      Bernard's star, I come from a country whose govt. is full of corrupt politicians and has seemingly forgotten our roots and traditions and is aping the west to its own extinction. All we can do is pray and hope that what's best for our motherland happens.



      with intent,

      much love, light and laughter,


  • or simply ´ye´shua´, or ´ye - sun´which would be an older english term for........you guessed right , the Sun!
    • Amazing..........


      The Christians here in India have been calling Jesus - Yeshu in the vernacular languages. Did not know the meaning though. Thanks for the revelation.


      with intent,

      much love, light and laughter,


  • and as in Jesus - JESUN.......
  • Asavari I seriously suggest people stop hoping after ´Ashtar´and ´Jesus´, etc. to do something.

    The Sun stays up there and that´s that.......it´s mostly sun symbolism.

    Sananda is related to the word Sun - i.e. Sananda or SUNanda.......


  • my theory? The planet is beginning to shift from the middle.

    It is expanding.

    So naturally earthquakes are occuring everywhere.

    What if it is possible that there will be more quakes coming that also hit the U.S. and finally Iceland?

    If that´s possible we´re probably talking about one big quake.........not just the one in Japan , but a big earthuake that´s affecting the Atlantic Ridge......
