On the eastern coast near Tokyo.
There's damage on land from the quake and damage from the tsunami on the coast. Also a fire spreading from broken fuel lines.
Early reports say 8 people killed but I reckon that will rise. Many cars have been swept away by the water.
Early TV reports.

BEIJING, China - China's state media is reporting that a moderately strong earthquake in the southwest topped more than 18,000 houses and apartment buildings.

Thursday's temblor left 25 dead in a mountainous area in Yunnan province, near the border with Myanmar.

More than 127,000 of Yingjiang county's 300,000 people have been displaced by the temblor which Chinese authorities measured at a magnitude 5.8.

A theory I been playing with since the last tsunami from a Mathematician view. Does the increased frequency of deep water drilling have a cause / effect in the increased frequency of major earth quakes and tsunami events.

A geologist would say No, no proof bad science. A mathematician studying chaos theory would say anything is possible via butterfly effect, we just haven't plotted it yet. Looking at data from over 50 years .. it is one thread that emerges. However, no one can prove it -"yet"

Just read that high waves are NOT expected. I expect that communities located on creeks or rivers that empty into the Pacific should pay attention to what's happening. Water likes to follow rivers, etc., both ways because the mouths are real real close to sea level. Boats moored close to shore are in some danger of getting pushed around, but it will be nowhere near the devastation suffered in Japan.

One big concern has to be the damaged nuclear power plant in Northern Japan. Evidently there is structural damage and the emergency cooling system is not functioning properly.

There is some video, reports of damage in the control room, some minor radiation release but not much more detail at this point. I would hope that evacuations have been ordered.

Here's a bit more of an update on the two damaged nuclear plants from CNN: click here for update!

The area around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was evacuated. The emergency cooling system is still not functioning properly but plant officials claim that the situation in "now under control."

A second plant experienced a fire in its turbine hall (non-nuclear side of the plant) but reports that the fire has now been put out.

The earthquake experienced was beyond what the plants were designed to withstand.

If we think back to Chernobyl in 1986, we know what a worse case scenario can do, hundreds of thousands of people exposed to unsafe levels of radiation.

This is horrible! My deepest sympathies to the people involved.

Already on here, and other parts of the Internet, there seem to be a variety of responses. The most worrying and contemptible are people making racist comments against the Japanese (not on Mudcat, I hasten to add!). Then there are those who are looking for someone to blame - God, drilling for oil etc., etc. Then there are the religious nutters - the less said about them, the better.

I think that the only things that we can blame are the size of our populations and the complexity of our infrastructures. The Earth has always been restless and dangerous - just to pick one example, 74,000 years ago the Sumatran super-volcano, Toba, erupted and covered most of the Indian sub-continent with up to 10 ft of ash; this apparently had a profound effect on the future of humanity. But populations were tiny then, and a comparative 'handful' of people died.

Now there are vast populations, plus their buildings, vehicles, power plants etc. in the way of each shrug and mutter of the planet. We have succeeded in replacing a neat little bullseye with several huge barn doors. Sadly, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Every person who has advocated on this forum in favor of nuclear power should reconsider their position. However, I don't expect that to happen with regard to a couple of individuals here.

Those of us who have opposed nuclear power since the partial meltdown of Three Mile Island in 1979 and the meltdown of Chernobyl in 1986, have become increasingly concerned about the resurgence of corporate and citizen support for "safe nuclear energy."

You have a point Charley. However, there is such a thing as "reasonably safe" nukes. Unfortunately, politicians won't spend the money to build them. One example... build them with with very costly containment systems in remote areas which are not prone to earthquakes. But that at least triples the cost.

In the light of that last comment it is good to bear in mind Japanese nuclear power plants are built with earthquakes of this magnitude in mind. Yet, the cooling system of the one in question is damaged beyond quick repair and while meltdown is not immediately on the cards, anonymous officials at various nuclear power safety agencies are still considering it a real, worst case scenario, possibility.

88.000 people reported missing at this point according to some news outlets.

My friends in Honolulu are safe. Now I'm waiting for my son to contact his son in Chula Vista, CA. My 10-year-old grandson lives on a boat in a marina with his mom and other grandparents. My son, like me, lives in RI, where my grandson also lived until he was 8. The tsunami should be greatly diminished by the time it reaches (has reached?) southern CA. Last i heard, the CA family didn't have Internet access on their boat, so I probably won't hear anything until tonight.

Southern Calif. doesn't seem to be reporting any damage; beaches have been closed and I would think that anyone living on a boat has been warned to leave.

There has been marina damage in Santa Cruz and especially in Crescent City, which is just below the Oregon border and was devastated by a tsunami in 1964. Apparently the dropoff of the continental shelf off the coast of northern California and southern Oregon amplifies and complicates the effects of any incoming tsunami waves.

In Morro Bay, about 3 hours north of L.A., they evacuated people from low-lying areas, and had some damage to boats and docks. I'm planning to visit there with my son next week.

In San Diego, they're reporting no noticeable waves.

In the L.A. area, Redondo Beach residents were hoping that a surge of water would help clear out a huge kill of sardines in the marina...

Nothing to compare to the the horrifying results in Japan, but still sobering that an event on the other side of the Pacific could cause this.

"A theory I been playing with since the last tsunami from a Mathematician view. Does the increased frequency of deep water drilling have a cause / effect in the increased frequency of major earth quakes and tsunami events."

Interesting thoiught, but not a chance. The tectonic stresses accumulate on a timescale waaaayyyyyy longer than human activity. And the stress re-adjustments due to slip on a fault redistribute the stresses locally - not globally. Lots and lots of seismic and direct in-situ stress measurments to support this.

Humans can fuck up lots of things (and can even trigger some - samll so far - earthquakes...see Sichuan 2008, Rocky Mt. Arsenal in the 1970s etc.) But causing an earthquake in Japan from drilling elsewhere on another plate? No possible way.

I hope I'm wrong but, despite the good organisation and preparation in Japan, sadly, it looks to me like 1000s of others must have died.
