i heard it hit guam's subs.

Yesterday afternoon in Japan, an earthquake hit a few miles from the eastern coast. Initial reports ranked this as a 8.8, but this morning it has been updated to a 9.0. This is a post to gather information and to reblog, so people know where to find the information they need.

Finding information

The most up-to-date place to find information about the tsunami and conditions in various countries is Twitter. I found out about the earthquake and tsunami warnings about 20 minutes before it was on the Hawaiian news through the feed there. Below are links to specific feeds, but you can easily alter the search to find out about places you want to find information about.

CNN has an online live stream of their coverage here.

Al Jazeera English has a live stream of their coverage here.

Google has set up a crisis response page, complete with emergency numbers and a people finder for Japan.

A list of tsunami landing times for various countries can be found here.
