8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Devastates Japan

Japan was devastated today by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake which places it in the top five ever recorded, and the largest ever in Japan. There were reports of 30 foot tall waves and fears that more than a thousand are dead. Cars and boats were thrown around like match box toys. There's a cruise ship and a train missing. Even worse, there's an emergency at a nuclear power plant with radiation 1000 times higher than normal. People are being ordered to evacuate. The videos are akin to watching a disaster movie such as 2012. I've never seen anything like it.
