How “Bad” Was the Earthquake?

Within about 12 hours, I heard several differing Richter Scale values placed on the Japanese earthquake of 2011: 4.9, 7.2, 7.9, and 8.8, and 8.9. I think the highest number may be correct. The AP reported an aftershock of 6.2 on Monday March 14. The nuclear plant at Fukushima Dai-ichi is in danger of meltdown as of Monday as well.

Readers and viewers are/were confused by differing reports and subsequent corrections in the news, even by the respected Associated Press (AP).

The death toll is not completed yet, but at least 2,000 human bodies (dead) washed up onto the coastline of Miyagi Prefecture on Monday morning, March 14, after the Friday seismic event. This is the northeast coastline of Japan and it is cold. I watched footage of tsunami flooding with its water and black sludge icing fields of crops like it was frosting a German chocolate cake. The sea took the people’s food away. Fortunately, as soon as news of the quake and tsunami reached the Midwest, the Endtime Joseph Feed the Hungry Program out of Indiana and Ohio packed a large ship full of food and sent it over. Other groups and organizations also responded.

Clean up and reconstruction will take years to complete. We have seen that already in New Orleans after Katrina (autumn 2005) and in Haiti.  Read some more of the verified information about the 201 Japanese disaster and how to help:
