A tsunami warning is in effect for Japan's Fukushima Prefecture after a 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck off Honshu at 5:59 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. A tsunami wave of 3-10 feet is possible, according to the agency. The US Geological Survey put the magnitude at 6.9, striking 23 miles east-southeast of Namie off the country's east coast at a depth of 7 miles. A tsunami wave has already been spotted 22 kilometers off the coast of Iwaki City in Fukushima Prefecture, CNN affiliate NHK reported.

Pray for them and other innocents. My position has always been that the governments of the world should be working together putting resources into preventing things that will change or eliminate life as we know it. Instead they work to piss us off at each other over things like rest rooms and drastically changing the culture of countries with outsiders and globalism. Society will never ever unite when elites play us, change us, and divide us only so they can profit.

I thought it was the Jew media, oh uh sorry, certain ethic group media that was dividing us. Which governments are dividing and how again?

My point is why are governments not doing more to understand, forecast and warn the public of such events? Maybe you know the answer. But don't fret about the 1%. If and when there is a catastrophic event they'll be OK, and they will have been forewarned before it happens just as they were on 9-11 thru Odigo and other contacts. www.haaretz.com

Bottom line there is simply no priority by governments on protecting average people or forecasting such events because little people don't count, and those that do count are already sheltered to some extent. Governments would rather wage profitable wars.

The first tsunami made Fukushima look like a scene from WWII, which was magnitude 7.1.

I can see that you're not giving it a rest as I requested, Robson. My government overlords and I had such high hopes for you.

Maybe electing leaders that are 180 degrees opposed to science and put their trust in the sky fairy is the reason.

Nice. *phew* Another tsunami like the one in '11 would have made the whole area almost as bad as Ann Arbor.

You know I'm sure Ann Arbor is probably a nice college town.......but it's gonna get ripped to shreds on this place because of 1 D-bag resident.
