8.9 Magnitute Earthquake hits JAPAN...

A massive earthquake has hit the northeast of Japan triggering a tsunami that has caused extensive damage.
Japan's TV showed cars, ships and even buildings being swept away the Fukushima prefecture, after the 8.9 magnitude earthquake.
Officials said a wave as high as 6m (20ft) could strike the coast.
The quake struck about 250 miles (400km) from Tokyo at a depth of 20 miles, shaking building in the capital for several minutes.
The tremor at 1446 local time (0546 GMT) was followed by a series of powerful aftershocks.

At least one person was killed in Fukushima prefecture, north of Tokyo where four million homes were without power. The quake caused many injuries, fires and a wall of water across the coast, prompting warnings to people to move to higher ground.
There were several strong aftershocks. In the capital Tokyo, buildings shook violently.

These are the first three TV pictures...
TV pictures showed a vast wall of water carrying the debris and even fires across a large swathe of coastal farmland near the city of Sendai, which has a population of one million.  

Countries like China, Taiwan, Guam, Kiribati, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hawaii, Malaysia, Australia should get ready for the tsunami to come.....
