But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

Wow that Ball of fire is moving everywhere! Kinda eerie to see the flood just wiping out all the farmland.

The Japanese PM just made a speech and confirmed there is no leak from any of their nuclear powerplants.

Feels bad for those drivers right where the waves are flowing.. They cant see the waves like we do on the helicopter. They cant even expect it!

The power of the tsunami waves would be significantly reduced by the Olympic peninsula and Vancouver Island.

There shouldn't be anything major hitting Richmond, BC.

Too far away, plus Vancouver Island is in the way.

Everything west of Japan is safe, unless the seismic waves from aftershocks cause problems further away. I guess it depends on the type of seismic waves - p or s-waves. Wish I remembered more from geophysics classes. So long ago.
