Sitting here watching breaking news of the tsunami that is hitting the coast in Japan, much of it live footage. It’s quite eerie. One of the reporters just said the 8.9 magnitude quake was felt as far away as Beijing, China. Boats, cars, structures are getting carried away by the surge of water, buildings, gas pipes, and an oil refinery are on fire.

According to HuffPo, tsunami warnings have been issued for Japan, Russia, Marcus Island and the Northern Marianas, while Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia and Hawaii have been put on tsunami watch.
