I watched in awe on TV a tsunami flood the city Sendai, a city of 40,000 people.

People were driving on the streets while the tsunami was hitting the city.

Japanese media reporting the city of Kurihara has been completely destroyed, population 77,000+
the quake is bigger than what hit Haiti and is reportedly biggest recorded quake Japan has Ever had, and they've had bad ones [Tokyo, '24 comes to mind]

The Secondary Tsunami was really really bad and All of the Islands of Hawaii are in coast evacuation. Entire West Coast US is on Tsunami Alert

Primary Quake was something like 8.9, Aftershocks have been greater than 7 in their own right.

The Tsunami was 30 ft that hit Japan.
The wave is expected to hit Hawaii within the hour.
