Tsunami About to Hit Fukushima…:

UPDATE
  • USGA initially put the quake at a magnitude of 7.3, has since downgraded to 6.9
  • This compares with the devastating March 2011 quake which had a magnitude 9.1 (if you are unfamiliar with the Richter scale, it is a logarithmic scale, a M9 quake is 10 times larger than an M8 quake, for example)
  • The two nuclear power plants in operation in Japan have been shut down in response. Both are located in the southeast of the country, near this quake
UPDATE 2
The tsunami has reached Fukushima now
  • Observed height of 60cm
  • Evacuation advice still effect, get out now
  • Multiple tsunami expected to hit
