Am watching live pictures, Sky reports a 2nd explosion at the Fukishima power plant and there is smoke in the sky! Wave is expected to hit land in next few minutes.

Re: Tsunami Alert north East Japan 3 meter wave

Not in any way to say that such a horrible event should happen anywhere, but at least a ~9.0 earthquake, tsunami, and more tremors are hitting a country with building codes, emergency responders, an in-tact government, good international ties, and a solid economy.

This stuff could happen to 100 other countries around the globe and it would be all over for them.

No one seems to know whats going on, Sky are saying a 10ft Tsunami is on way and will hit any minute, The CNN reporter was more worried about his own safety than doing his report! I thought you could only have a Tsunami if you first had an earthquake! Lets hope this is a false alarm!

Here in Aus, it's being reported as a false alarm.
