Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami – Images, Videos and Timeline

Japan Struck by Massive EarthquakeEarly in the morning U.S. Eastern Time, reports started coming in that a 7.9 earthquake had struck just off the Northern Coast of Japan. By the time I was able to start putting together a post, a Tsunami warning had gone out. Before I had finished the first sentence, the U.S. Geological Survey upgraded the earthquake to a highly destructive 8.8 magnitude quake. Much of the information in this post is not verified as it is coming in as it happens. If you have a correction – email [email protected] or DM CDNNow on twitter.
