      I'm pretty sure koofi lives north of Tokyo, so when you read this koof, after internet access is restored, just let us know everything's alright

        I was viewing the Kobe quake here :- http://shinzlogclips.blogspot.com/2011_01_01_archive.html last week, I was viewing that blog for other reason and spotted the entry.

        ''The deadly Kobe earthquake,which struck in January 1995, left more than 6000 dead and caused damage equal to more than 2% of gross domestic product''

        That led to the downfall of Barings bank which was sold for 1 Pound to ING. I wonder if any more Nick Leesons were playing on Yen / Futures this time round...

        Seems they are already suggesting atleast 1000 dead...

        Also mention of the Moon at it closest for many years which is known to be associated with such events

        All the best to everyone affected...

          Just saw some footage on the German news. Horrible sights.. I can't imagine what it must be like to experience something like that.

            I was just reading about how Japan is "one of the most prepared" countries in the world to deal with disasters, which began after a devastating 1923 earthquake, and they have updated their building codes multiple times since in light of new earthquake science. Good for them. 7 years ago 200,000 people died in Indonesia from a tsunami.

              I got a link to this video of skyscrapers swaying to one of the quakes. Tokyo's buildings apparently have held up really well from all reports.

                I guess Ricoche (Jim Atwood) is in Nagano.
                But we have more members there.
                Hope they are safe.

                  everyone pray to whatever diety you believe in that the nuclear reactor stays intact. the global implications of another nuclear meltdown would be catastrophic, affecting all of us in some form. they're still dealing with chernobyl, and that was '85...

                    i have been watching the news, that wall of water/debris just looked unstoppable...everything in it's path was wiped away like matchwood, i hope most of the people had time to get to higher ground once the warning sounded and what we saw was mainly empty buildings and cars being washed away.

                    crossed fingers for all the people caught up in this out there today.

                      Yes. And not only the people but also think of the many cats, dogs and other various pets that were likely left behind unintentionally. Who has time to go outside calling for fluffy when there's a huge wave on the way?

                      Sucks!

                        Indeed. It terrible to know that the expectation of the worst is a daily reality in Japan. As the video of that huge wave showed, they can't prevent the tragedy, they can only keep as many safe as is possible. Let's pray the resources to help those in need will become available.

                          It's testiment to their technical superiority and planning that the deathtoll will be so low. It's a tragedy, but if that happened somewhere else it would've been exponentially worse......

                          God bless 'em.
