Earthquake & Tsunami

Tsunami wave arrival forecast
As you probably know by now, an 8.9 [UPDATE: 9.0] magnitude earthquake delivered a massive blow to Japan today, triggering a devastating tsunami, the outer edges of which threaten the Pacific basin, Hawaii and the US west coast.

We extend our heartfelt condolences and sympathy to everyone in Japan, knowing they face difficult days ahead of recovery and resolution in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy. Our thoughts are with them, their families and friends.
