    When I heard in the news about the earthquake in Japan, I immidiately thought of you, sora. Hope you are ok.

    Hawaii has also had a small 4.5 earthquake this morning and they are predicting the tsunami and or its after effects to maybe even reach the U.S and Canadian West coasts.

    Thanks guys and ladies. The news about 200 to 300 people found dead is heartbreaking. Hope tsunamis die down before reaching other shores.

    The damage in northern Japan is horrible. I hope tsunamis won't affect other countries.
    glad to hear you're ok

    I was watching a live feed of Hawaii and it looks like they'll be okay from the effects.

    Keep us updated on what is happening in Japan. We really want to make sure everything is going to be okay.

    im more worried about the Nuke Plant damage there and them not being able to get it in order. Some TV news stations are reporting that its coolant system has gone on the fritz and there may not be any fail safe plan to correct it? Can someone find out more on this please?

    I'm hearing both that it's been sorted and that it's not....

    The plant alone could cause more devastation than the quake if it goes up

    Even though the situation was horrible, you have to admit that the whirlpool is kind of cool.



    I can't understand what is being said, but the woman near the end pretty much makes up for that fact. The language of fear is pretty universal.

    the news coming out on that reactor is scary to say the least.... a Japanese safety panel are claiming the radiation level in the reactor is 1000 times higher than the safe level...

    i fear this thing is going to go off

    My first thought when I heard this was that I hoped sora was okay. Glad to hear you are. Japan and the other countries affected are in my prayers.

    Today was not a good day for a lot of people.

    My first two thoughts were where is my old roommate and where is Sora. I know Sora is okay, but Minami is still unknown.

    Glad to hear you are ok Sora. Hope things get better over there. Earthquake, tsunami, and now a possible chernobyl scenario on top of it, this has got to be one of the worst disasters of the century.

    It turned out that's a faked pic. Gundam is okay.

    Not too good. The gov has just announced it seems like fuel melting is partially going on in the Fukushima #1 unit. Cesium leakage was detected.

    Update (02:21 AM) - At least, #3 unit was successfully shut down. Authorities are trying to release radioactive steam to relieve pressure from other reactors.

    Update (02:49 AM) - There've been several (more than 20) M6 class tremors of different epicenters in wide areas (including Niijima, Tokyo) today. Experts are concerned over the possibility of additional earthquakes induced by the recent major quake.

    Update (03:14 AM) - Just felt a minor M4.3 tremor from Tokyo Bay as its epicenter. Hope nothing major happens.

    Update (03:41 AM) - Authorities succeeded in releasing steam from #1 unit. Effective depressurization was confirmed.

    Update (07:58 AM) - The metal container of the nuclear reactor is still unharmed. JASDF's C-130 is soon to be dispatched from Komaki Airbase (Nagoya) to fly the additional cooling pump unit.
