Over here in Southern California, we woke up to no big deal. An extra 2 foot swell was all that was expected here in Redondo Beach. The sardine beaching earlier this week was more dramatic. But all day I saw nothing but boring news about Japan itself. Several nuclear power plants brought offline, no radiation, end of story. Wha? This was a 8.9 magnitude quake. That's enormous. It wasn't until I found this video, now 14 hours old with less that 200 views that shows what's up.
This is devastating.
