Good lord, the amount of flooding caused by the Tsunamis, on top of the damage caused by the Earthquake is insane. The only solace is that Japan is probably one of the better equipped nations for actually dealing with an earthquake and/or the aftermath.

Here's to hoping the people are mostly safe, or able to make it to safety. The size of the Tsunami waves coming in are, the only way to say it... intense.

You just watch and feel helpless.
Docomo/Softbank and all the major carriers shut off all use except for emergency services

All the feeds are the same, no point of posting various ones.

I was walking by a TV near a mall that plays the news during opening hours, and there was a HUUUUUUUUUUUGE crowd in front of it. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the footage of the huge wave carrying all those cars, houses, etc.... I'll admit, I got goosebumps seeing that. Then twitter blew up
