Earthquakes, Typhoons and Tsunamis, oh my!

I've never experienced a tsunami warning before. We're far enough in land that a massive wave wouldn't effect us at all, but still........we're watching the news reports of all the tsunami preparations that are going on, definitely a different experience.


The Tokyo marathon is in full swing right now (Ganbatte Malcolm!), and all those runners are crossing the finish line on Tokyo Bay, which is right smack in the middle of the tsunami warning zone

I've been in Japan long enough to have seen a number of Tsunami warnings...and the 1993 tsunami that killed about 200 people in Hokkaido.
