Massive Earthquake and Tsunami hits Japan


Recommended Posts

This afternoon an earthquake of about 8.8 occurred off the coast of Japan, shaking buildings in Tokyo and setting an oil refinery on fire. Soon after came a 10 metre high tsumani sweeping away houses, boats, entire buildings sweeping far inland through fields and towns. Reports are still coming in, but the devastation looks to be massive. A tsunami warning has been issued for most of the Pacific.

The posthumous and missing people notwithstanding, a very important question is how the world will deal with the fact that its third largest economy is going to deal with this disaster. Japan's economy was already doing badly before the tsunami, now they are officially fucked. Nuclear power plant problems on top of that. What's the ratio... like one in every six nuclear power plants are in Japan? Five of them are at critical levels... stocks all over the place are falling. Their situation is going to affect the world.

 

I feel for their human losses. Tragic.
