Shallow earthquake, magnitude 7.6 just off the west coast... rare to see 'major' tsunami warnings (purple area in image below, Ishikawa Prefecture).

Strange though, GA has all four major quakes triangulated to a position on the Noto peninsula (i.e. on land).

Ben's Map of coloured Coastlines mirrors the wave size variations in the above Vidz.
Purple Coasts copped the worst of it...out to the northern red lined coasts / Island.
Let's hope that settles...

Saw this last night, first thought was Zen, but then saw it was the West coast, safe to assume he lives somewhere on or near the more exposed east coast.

Yeah Zen should be OK, big earthquake and quite a bit of damage. Hopefully not too many casualties.

Zen's okay. Had a little chat with him online last night. He's over on the east coast so no worries for him. Zen's got a mate over from Australia so probably spending a bit less time online at the moment whilst catching up.

Hope your family is all good, Basesix.

The building earthquake standards in Japan are so good now.

Video coming out of Japan is mind blowing. Looking at the damage the death toll will be high.

Looks like live streaming on this site Udo (youtube stream). Not much left of the plane now. https://airlive.net/news/2024/01/02/breaking-a-japan-airlines-a350-has-l...

A bit of inside vision a bit further down the page.
