Japan’s most powerful ever recorded 8.9 earthquake

15950514Total chaos is the best way I could describe it. Even the aftershocks are very powerful and caused a 33 foot wave of water that slams Japan’s coast.  Scientists said the quake ranked as the fifth-largest earthquake in the world since 1900 and was nearly 8,000 times stronger than the one which devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, last month. At time of this post the death toll was officially 88 with 349 people missing, Kyodo news agency estimates the death toll at more than 1,000.

One other thing I’d like to point out that from the time the event took place to the time it’s live around the world was incredibly fast considering the size and scale of the earthquake and it’s related aftershocks which many of which was as power as the 7.0s and 6.6s. My USGS email had just a ton of records of earthquake and aftershocks. I’d also point out we had many smaller earthquakes in the days just before this event. Smaller in size and power before the big one came. Pray for the saints in Japan.
