Sendai Earthquake (Japan)

in case anyone hasnt been following this the last two days, heres my quick synopsis:

5th largest earthquake ever recorded
Magnitude 8.9

Japan: more than 23 6.0 quakes, 33 foot tsunami, landslides:

500 dead, 1000 injured, 1000 missing,
trains derailed,
oil refinery fire,
dam broke,
2 nuclear reactors damaged
4 million homes without electicity
1 million homes without water

thank goodness it was 81 miles offshore, but this is all still very alarming.
