Very interesting phenomena with 8.9 out of 9 point scale (richter) for quakes, devasting Japan, expected damage to Hawaii in process and West Coast California on up, could have issues.  This tsunami can and did already help cause another earthquake in Hawaii and so hopefully the St. Andres fault does not experience shifting plates...which could trigger something nasty in California and coast line. 
 
Who knows what effects could happen and how it could actually effect other things we cannot even know right now. I would be worried if living in California or Hawaii and even Alaska. Higher ground is good. Anybody herein got relatives in California...contact them perhaps.

All I can say is WOW and that I'm greatful I've never felt an earthquake. I pretty like to count on the ground beneath me staying in one place.

Check the news out Japan declaring national emergency the Nuclear reactor has an issue with being cooled.....that is scary....now this post is more relevant because it also is about real radiation possible issues. (not meant as sick humor) Have to see what happens and even in our country.

Zufus,
I'm looking out my window at the San Andreas right now (It's clearly visible about a mile away) Happy to report that there is no movement. Unfortunately I'm on the wrong side of the fault and chances of having waterfront property is about nil.

My family lives mostly in Laguna Beach. no problems.

I worked for a Japanese company for 16 years and been associated with them for 28 years. I know many out that way, hopefully they are well....

My daughter lives in Santa Monica, about 9 miles from the beech and in a second floor apartment, so no worries, although they are in the red zone.

Yeah that could be the red zone alright, hopefully not at this time. John T living near the fault line (Andreas) would not make me feel super secure, did you buy Quake insurance, my brother bought it when he lived there a while ago. Amazing the power of a wall of water.

As an 8 year old kid, my family survived the great Moroccan earthquake in 1960, that killed over 12,000 people. My mother said I slept right through the whole thing. Woke up the next morning, and virtually everything in our two story house was either on the floor or broken.

Fortunately it appears to be a non-issue for my daughter, living in Santa Monica.
 
Sad situation, and dangerous. Unbelievable video on the TV stations.

This is an incredibly tragic event.  Japan is a clean, efficient country, where people are polite to clumsy uncultured foreigners, and the trains run on time.  Tens of thousands of people must have died, and a densely populated region wrecked.  At least it gives us some perspective, there is more going on in life than our urinary system.
 
I live in an earthquake zone, so I read about them.  There are earthquakes, and there is "the big one".  If people live in concrete houses, like Iran, China, Turkey or Haiti, a smaller quake can be truly terrible.  The big ones are subduction zone quakes, where the edge of one plate slides under another plate.  The Japan quake was one of these where one plate slid about 60 ft underneath the other over a couple of hundred miles, and so was the one in Indonesia a few years back.  The Alaska earthquake that flattened Anchorage in 1964 was one of those, a 9.2.  I was in a 6.8, that was really scary.  A 9 is unimaginable, it has to seem like the end of the world to those poor individuals that are caught in it. 
 
Seismically, Japan is in a terrible spot.  Japan is on the North American plate, the same as Alaska and the US, but on one side there is the Pacific Plate, and the other the Eurasian Plate. The San Andreas fault in California is where the North American plate is sliding south, next to the Pacific Plate which is moving north.  It has a lot of earthquakes, but not exactly like the Japan one.  The big subduction zone quakes that seem most likely to happen in North America are in Alaska, British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.  The last one in the Pacific Northwest was in 1700; some say there is supposed to be another one within the next 50-100 years, seems like the same risk as dying from a Gleason 6. I have earthquake insurance.  The geography protects Seattle from tsunamis, they hit the Pacific coast but not so much in Puget sound--this one was only 6 inches at the waterfront.   Portland is inland.  Vancouver is protected because it's behind Vancouver Island.  No nuclear reactors are built around here.  Another side effect of living by a subduction zone is exploding volcanos, like Mt. St. Helen, Mt Rainer, Mt. Hood, etc.  All of these things happen hundreds and hundreds of years apart.  You're probably at more risk to get struck by lightening.

Bumpy-bumped up thread:

When I saw the radiation issues originally announced (facebook acquaintence guy) it was something to consider. Now it is all to real and can devaste the people and country. Economically a huge set back, my brother is into economics, mentioned Japan has been on slippery ground for decades and market issues from back in 2000, they didn't recover from that much. (I don't know on that). It doesn't look pretty, and long term effects from different types of radiation particles is really an unknown effect, plus radiation could have traveled high in the air and been 'shipped' elsewhere by now or into the water and ground. The people are starting to not trust government reports on the radiations significance. It will effect the planet and even some on our economy, you can see how fragile things can be. cry

Kreskin like prediction, do not be surprised to find another event within 30-60 days, that would be significant enough to atleast be very news worthy, could be within the Pacific quake circle zone which is from Chile to Canada and around back to Asia and their side of the Pacific. Myself, question the dead fish thing in California immediately(couple days prior to this event), and I don't trust some of these reports on dead animals all over the globe, but forget about that. Don't want any weird threads starting, but you can surf web things and really wonder thereafter. Let's hope our west coast never sees a quake and/or tsunami in our lifetimes.

Was just listening on NPR, that even in the most devestated regions, people aren't looting, or breaking into vending machines that would have water and food, just not in their culture.
