The second one you can see cars driving along and then being caught in the tsunami.  This is said to be the worst in Japan’s history.

There are tsunami warnings for Hawaii and the Philippines but not for California yet.

Here is the Al Jazeera English live stream. (don’t download the plugins from this site. I hear they can be a problem.)

UPDATE:  California just got updated to a Tsunami Watch. If we were hit they would hit at 6 AM.

Hawaii’s residents are preparing for tsunami.  There are long lines at gas stations.

For those with family in Japan and a knowledge of Japanese here is the Google person finder.

UPDATE: Hawaii’s tsunami warning horns just went off for over 15 minutes..
