Godzilla sightings off the east coast! Roland Emmerich is on his way to get some free shots for a new movie.

Google translate says it's this

再びではないこのたわごと

It is probably very wrong.

Anyway, I don't think this tsunami is going to pan out. I'm going to hit the sack and watch the highlights on the news tomorrow morning.

My friend from college's neighbor was in Japan just last week, and I haven't seen her update her facebook yet. I can't stop freaking out here.

Also I was flipping through the channels last night, and came across some anime. I NEVER see anime on tv. Freaky, right?

If only there was some kind of fish that would wash up on shore to warn us about these things beforehand.

They've issued a 1m tsunami warning for the entire east coast of the main island (Honshu).

But so far they haven't issued an expected arrival time and their previous 2:40am prediction didn't pan out.

I doubt anything is going toAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHH

7.3 - many magnitudes weaker than 9.0, but nothing to sneeze at.
 
2013-10-25 02:11:02 PM
7.3 is on the low end to generate a tsunami unless it causes something else to happen (like a underwater landslide).  The epicenter is further out that the 9.0 a couple years ago.  It probably scared some people but I doubt there would be much damage.

Gamera wouldn't do that, he's my friend!

Aftershock of the 2011 quake?  Or foreshock of a future quake?

Damn it, man.  it's a tidal wave, not the rapture.

is 1m a significant tsunami?  or just a "great, i just bought new carpets at my beach  house" kind of event?
 
2013-10-25 02:12:07 PM
The epicenter of this earthquake appears to be on the ocean side of the subduction zone, in one of the deepest parts of the ocean, 2 orders of magnitude less powerful and significantly further away from the islands of Japan than the 2009 earthquake that caused massive damage.

So remain concerned, but probably shelf the outright panic.
 
2013-10-25 02:12:17 PM
They are expecting a three foot sunami.

Stupid fish.  They were on the wrong side of the Pacific.

When the first one hit a few years back, a friend of my girlfriend called up screaming that we were going to die in a tsunami and that my girlfriend should grab the cats and come over but I wasn't invited. She didn't like me. Funny thing is, if a tsunami hit we were in a safer spot than her.

I'm at the beach, waiting for monsters.

Earthquake was some 300-400 miles off the coast, about an hour ago.  If a wave is going to arrive, it'll be shortly (tsunamis travel ~300-400 mph, IIRC).  If it's not there in the next half-hour or so, it's not happening.
 
2013-10-25 02:14:21 PM
So those warning Oarfish were on vacation?

Sorry Japan, glad it wasn't Cali dropping into the ocean though.
 
2013-10-25 02:14:46 PM
I wonder if my east coast family and friends will ask if we're safe from the tsunami again (I'm the Willamette Valley).

My bro in China sent me the hoax map that showed the west coast of the US was doomed

According to the guy working at the ChinaMax in the food court that I just asked it's, "Imvietnameseyoucolossaldick." Seems like a lot of sounds for four words, but you know those crazy Japs.

You weren't invited? To an end of the world party? You should poison her sushi.

The entire sea near your house gets pushed up 39 inches and pushed toward you. "Fairly significant" as it's a metric assload of water- how many tons in the bay?- and it's all coming to visit.

Height is obviously an issue, but even something low like this can cause significant damage because of the sheer amount of water coming behind it.  This isn't a "wave" so much as "the ocean just got a meter higher and is coming at you like a wall".
