    Lots of tsunami warnings....

    TOKYO (BNO NEWS) -- A massive earthquake struck off the coast of northeastern Japan on early Friday afternoon, seismologists said, prompting tsunami warnings for multiple countries.
    The 7.9-magnitude earthquake at 2.46 p.m. local time (0546 GMT) was centered about 179 kilometers (111 miles) east of Sendai in Japan. It struck about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) deep, making it a shallow earthquake, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA).
    JMA issued a tsunami warning, saying a major tsunami could strike parts of the Pacific coast. A tsunami warning is also issued for Russia, the Marcus Islands and Northern Marianas. Meanwhile, tsunami watches have been issued for Guam, Wake Island, Taiwan, Yap, Philippines, Marshall Islands, Belau, Midway Island, Pohnpei, Chuuk, Kosrae, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Nauru, and Hawaii.

    Adjusted the headline

    So, 2 aftershocks, a 7.5 and 7.4 reported....nasty.

    Enormous quake.

    From the photos coming in the skyscrapers seem to have coped well with this brutal quake.

    I'm not sure how far inland they are filming, but the first wave looks to be about a couple of metres. As we learned in 2004, they often come in groups.

    Looks pretty bad at-least as far as property damage is concerned, lets hope not to many is going to get hurt

    There are a stream of about four or five waves around 05.-1km apart, hitting the coastline straight on, but they don't appear to have the same strength as the first one thank god.

    This is 90 minutes after the quake.

    Sendai Airport is awash. Will make relief efforts difficult until it's receded.
