Well they got the year right, just a tad out with the location.

Some fairly dramatic vid on the TV news, cars washed away by the thousand, boats as well.
Hopefully loss of life won't be excessive.

Apparently there could be an issue with the nuclear power stations.
Although they have automatically shut down, there are problems supplying enough electricity to keep the cooling pumps going, which in turn could allow overheating, which in turn could cause a bigger catastrophe than the earthquake and tsunami put together.
Hopefully the Japs are smart enough to keep them under control.

Pleased to be on the other side of the globe right now.
Hopefully not another Chernobyl.

Yes but distance is not all depends on wind direction and strength. My sister, hubby and two daughters are/were hill farmers in deepest mid-Wales. After Chernobyl they all developed thyroid problems it is now under control but lifetime medication. It is now accepted that the cloud descended on uplands in mid-Wales and animals are still bought in and destroyed after grazing. However this was not known about for a long time and back in the day farmers would often slaughter a lamb/pig/cow and share/swap with neighbours. Who knows how it happened but they get no assistance and have to pay for their own prescriptions! It could just be that 3 out of the 4 might have the problem from genetics but not all four.

Seems the wind is blowing out to sea at present away from populated areas.
I well remember the livestock restrictions after Chernobyl, lasted for quite a few years.
Fortunately it doesn't seem to be a Chernobyl situation,..... yet.

Er no, as I said according to the Sun, it's all down to the Moon.

Looking at their dates there could be even worse yet to come, from next week on.

There were also some minor disturbances in Spain a week or more back which damaged some ramshackle houses in the hills and the fronts of a few cave houses.

I see they have decided to flood the damaged reactor with sea-water, which means it will likely be a write off regardless of any further developments.

Situation at the nuclear plant looking very dodgy again.

One old guy picked up 9 miles out to sea sitting on the roof of his house.

Some really dramatic video clips coming in now, looks like armageddon.

Don't worry - it's all nonsense.

The pseudoscience

The UK newspaper Daily Mail has a shameful article up asking if the Japan earthquake was caused by this "supermoon". While they do ask a geologist and an astronomer about it — and they both say it’s silly — the article spends quite a bit of its space whipping up fears that the gravity of the Moon will cause volcano eruptions and earthquakes.
I’ll note that the person who is making this claim, and who first called this effect a "supermoon", is an astrologer. Yeah. Let me be clear here as well: astrology doesn’t work. At all
An Astrologer

Think someone would have lost the bet, as the shake came this year and only a couple of months after the first post
