Wow, devastation is almost indescribable! I woke from the 6- shock at 4:36 this morning but haven't felt any of the other hundreds of aftershocks.

Some interesting science-y facts about this quake from the Vancouver Sun and the USGC.

Earth's axis has reportedly shifted ten inches as a result of the quake, and Japan's coast is said to have permanently shifted 2.4 metres.

Nice to see DH on Twitter being positive about Japan in response to a follower's nuclear-related criticisms.

Thanks for the link - that was very interesting.

I am glad you're okay but it really was a major event and I'm so sad about all the devastation that's been caused.

*Hugs*

I hope things settle down out there soon.

I thought it was interesting. In the way of Earth's axis it has affected us all. I wonder about the fall out from that. Sadly, it is still ongoing. There has just been an explosion at the No. 1 Fukushima reactor - 4 injured and god knows what radioactivity has been released!
