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.
