The world around us is complaining and the world is shaking . Japan was hit today with a powerful earthquake that reached magnitude 8.9 on the Richter scale, and a major tsunami , a wall of water reaching heights of 30 ft. raced inland, causing unbelievable damage.
To keep the severity of this earthquake in perspective, many of the dozens of aftershocks were recorded at magnitude 6.0, stronger than many individual earthquakes on record.
The earthquake, one of the largest ever recorded, caused the tsunami which affected over 2,000 km. of coastline, washing away homes, trees, vehicles and people. At this date, hundreds of people have been killed, with as many missing.
At Incoming Bytes our hearts and prayers go out to the families of those lost in this terrible tragedy.
