If you’re not aware of this catastrophic event then you are living under a rock!  Take a look at this video of the Tsunami as it hit Japan’s coastal city of  Sendai.  The Tsunami was caused by the recent devastating earth quake that rocked the pacific nation.

This is the most devastating natural event to ever occur in Japan.  A country that is no stranger to these acts of nature.  They are well prepared and knowledgeable about earthquakes.  But as we see first hand, the power of an earthquake combined with a Tsunami  is a monstrous event.  There is little that can stop the raw power of  natures full and explosive power.  Now “The Disaster in Japan” really begins as the top story in the World-wide press and Television News  channels.  The magnitude 8.9 quake occurred 230 miles off the coast of Tokyo – Friday 03/11/2011.  It is reported to be the single largest ever recorded. Then the devastating Tsunami followed  on its heels.
A Nuclear Disaster may be next?
Today 03/14/11, the third of three Nuclear plants on the shore line has belched smoke and the fear of melt downs of all three plants is looming on the horizon.  The estimated death toll is hovering into the thousands and no telling how many people are still trapped under tons of wreckage.  Now to add insult to injury, the fear of  Japan’s world finical position is a question mark. There seems to be no good news at any turn in the road.
The requests for monetary donations are beginning… and truly with the bad experience of money getting to the impoverished people of  Haiti during their recent earth quake,  may hamper open pocket giving to Japan.  It will take a long time of rebuilding to get this country back on its feet.

Question: Will you donate monetarily to the Japanese people in their desperate and most dire time of need?

NOW RANT TO ME!

    I heard rumors about the earth’ rotation was slowed after both the Chilean and Sumatra quakes and sunamis.
    Another bit of fast news was that the earth’s magnetic pole has shifted 25 miles, which I lumped with that if cows laid down, they would die, because they could not get back up. That tid bit was on an Orlando Florida TV station some 20 years ago. Oh well we don’t know everything about everything.

      You’re so right “Man Cave Master”…we certainly do not know everything about everything!

    I have reservations about a donation at this time but, I would trust The Red Cross to see that my monetary donation is distributed properly.

    FYI: There is a “theory” circulating that the Japan Earthquake / Tsunami event will shorten our days by some small but measurable amount. More info on that as it becomes available.

    As I recall there was some talk about the same thing from the 2010 Haiti Earthquake catastrophe but it never made a big splash, as I recall.

      Interesting. I heard the same theory today, 03/15/11. Let me know if you get something credible on this.
