Urgent tsunami warning issued for citizens in coastal areas - Russia - Taiwan - Guam - Marianas and other affected areas. Move to higher ground and away from coastal areas immediately.

Many residents - in land farming areas - Japan - probably completely unaware of what's happening.

Yes.. The momentum and distance in land this thing traveled is previously unimaginable to me and I'm sure most others too....

Live from Tokyo -

It was huge here and Sendai is about 350kms from Tokyo. The sirens went off in this area, which I have never heard before. The local Jr High School evacuated the kids from the buildings and place them on to the sports field.

My apartment was really rocking, the cars in the parking lot were shaking like crazy.

Another aftershock is occurring at the moment...

Tsunami warnings, watches issued around Pacific

Tokyo - tsunami waves hit the coast of north-east Japan Friday after a magnitude-8.9 earthquake, and tsunami warnings and watches were issued for countries around the Pacific.

The Pacific tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii issued a tsunami warning for Japan and Russia and tsunami watches for Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hawaii, Guam and other Pacific islands.

"An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines near the epicentre within minutes and more distant coastlines within hours," the centre said.

It warned that a tsunami could be a series of waves, the time between different waves could be five minutes to an hour and the first wave might not be the largest.

Television images showed waves striking the Japanese coast. The centre forecast arrival times for Russia's Urup Island at 0714 GMT, initial times for Taiwan at 0932 GMT, the Philippines at 0955 GMT and Indonesia at 1049 GMT

Thats a big freaking Quake. I noticed my rabbit, Mr. Hoppy McSpudbuck, was acting strange during the time of the shaking and he's in Bangkok unsure.gif.

Please keep us updated on any jitters that Hoppy has in the coming hours. It could be the advance warning we need to avoid a major disaster.
