Yes--she said the river outside their house was flowing backwards and was getting her kids and pets in the car to flee. Pray for her and the other AWers in the region.

Scary stuff...thoughts are definitely with her. She just tweeted that her area isn't evacuating after all, though, so hopefully that's a good sign.

Checking in from South Japan. My area didn't get hit, and the coast I'm on is just managing to avoid a tsunami warning. Feeling very lucky.

There's a general...

Tsunami warning across the Pacific. NZ is on general alert, Civil Defense have swung in to action. My coastal area is due to be hit around 11am our time on Saturday morning.

I'm waiting to hear from all my Japanese friends in the region.

Cellphones not working and people queuing to use payphones.

The earth moved! At the time of the earthquake I was at home. The whole apartment moved like crazy and I had to stop the bookcases from falling over. Things were falling off shelves. I did put my coat and shoes on, in case a sharp exit was needed.

But I am not near the coast and they are experiencing tsunami. Some fires in Tokyo. I may go out again but take a taxi and find photo opps.

I will update my blog with news. Still tremors now and then. Live news feed here: http://wwitv.com/tv_channels/6810.htm

Right now, they're saying the quake was 8.8.

Here's hoping all the AW folk in Japan are okay (good to hear you are, ShapeSphere, Leanan-Sidhe, tt42, and Rosemadder).

From the USGS, it looks like there have been about 20 quakes in the 5.0 plus magnitude over the last several hours. That's pretty unbelievable. So are the pictures of large boats on shore and two engine airplanes pushed away from where they should be. From the pictures, it looks like there's a lot of damage on Honshu and effects farther south. The actual tsunami photos that show the swirl and the wave approaching shore are really unusual - I've never seen a swirl in pictures before. 8.9 is really major. Hope everyone is okay. Puma

This is a great idea for a thread, and it lifts my spirits seeing all the AW members reaching out with thoughts and prayers to others in need.

ShapeSphere and Leanan - I'm glad to hear you're both doing okay. I continue to pray for all of you out there facing this newest natural disaster.

Not in Japan right now (need to change my thing) but it looks like this wasn't the big bad horrible one that they've been expecting in my area for the past fifty years. It's a little farther north, but the tsunami is horrible and I'm waiting still to hear back from my friends. I had a lot of them that lived in low-lying areas. I'm pretty shook up right now.

Yes the specialists on TV said that the ones we're now experiencing might trigger the great one. I hope it won't. I hope it won't because yesterday I thought I was going to die, and wasn't even in the epicenter, it was that horrible.

Widespread fires and power outages being reported - but reported casualties are miraculously light, as of what I've heard this morning. But my own hopes and wishes are going out to our AWers in the affected areas, too.

That's the concern I've had. I know we had a moderate one in the general area of the Tokai quake a year or two ago, and they had said that it could trigger the big one, but if it did it should be within the week. That was the most terrifying week of my life. Are they giving any kind of timeline for that scenario?

I just heard back from one of my friends and he said the earthquake was the longest he's ever experienced by far.

No, they say it can happen next week, in a few months, or in a few years even, so I guess they don't know.

And yes it was very long, because there were a few shocks, one after another. We watched our books and stuff fly from the shelves, so we cleaned them up when the first one calmed down. In three minutes the stuff was on the floor again

And yes it was very long, because there were a few shocks, one after another. We watched our books and stuff fly from the shelves, so we cleaned them up when the first one calmed down. In three minutes the stuff was on the floor again
Based on what happened in Los Angeles in 1994, we had some of the worse damage in the following two weeks from aftershocks. Keep footgear handy (you don't want to walk over broken glass) and think about at least temporarily moving items to safer places--for you as much as for them.

We had pictures come off the wall, and travel horizontally, for instance.

Thinking good thoughts for Japan and coastal areas--
