I've seen what that does in small amounts in bathtubs. I'm afraid to imagine what it can do in large amounts in tsunamis. Yikes.

Another big earthquake has struck japan hope all of your Japanese members are ok.

Quote
(CNN)A 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's Honshu island on Tuesday, triggering tsunami waves and bringing back traumatic memories for locals of the devastating 2011 Fukushima disaster.
Residents in Fukushima Prefecture braced for the worst after a tsunami warning was issued early Tuesday morning -- along the same stretch of coast devastated by enormous waves five years ago.

In 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake -- one of the worst ever to hit Japan -- killed more than 20,000 people and caused tsunamis of up to 12 meters (40 feet) which swamped the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, triggering a nuclear meltdown.

Yes, I had heard about this as well.  It is interesting, as the earthquake that happened five years ago was one of the reasons I decided to come to Taiwan for work.  I always had an interest in karate and Japanese video games as a child, and my grandfather was also stationed in Japan during the war.  But I was looking for jobs right around the time that the earthquake struck, and in addition to personally being concerned about my safety, I knew I would never get the blessing from my parents to move there after that had happened.  I am not saying that I would not have chosen Taiwan over Japan if that tragedy never happened, as I am honestly not sure, but I do know that the tragedy had made me nix Japan from the shortlist.

I hope everyone is alright...
