Japan was struck by a 8.9 earthquake off the northeastern coast of the island on Friday afternoon at 2:46 P.M. local time. Initially reported as a weaker earthquake, buildings in Tokyo shook for several minutes.

The quake struck right off of Honshu, Japan’s most populous island, approximately 200 miles away from Tokyo. A tsunami warning has been issued, with warnings that waves of up to 20 feet high could strike Japan’s shores.

Al Jazeera doing a great live coverage on the epidemic!


Several buildings in Japan are reported to be on fire. All transportation systems, including airports, have been closed in Tokyo.

Warnings and watches have been issued for a wide area including Japan, Russia, Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Hawaii. Reports say that a tsunami 13-foot high has already hit Japan. The Miyagi prefecture, closest to the epicenter, is expected to see the worst of the damage.

I hope Japan is all ok. You are in our thoughts and prayers!
