  • Quake shifted Japan; towns now flood at high tide

    These people can't catch a break!

    Some areas in Ishinomaki moved southeast 17 feet (5.3 meters) and sank 4 feet (1.2 meters) lower.


    Gives a good explanation of the plate mechanics that have caused this. People hurry home before 3 PM so they can be inside before high tide!

        Did you see the "liquification" in Tokyo??!! Their definition isn't real consistent with the geological definition, but it sure describes what was going on.

            The thing that concerns me is that the seizmologists are saying that this is just the beginning.
