John adds: Godzilla hasn’t arrived yet, but Japan was hit with a second quake just as big as the first which left buildings in Tokyo swaying.
Japan has had a rough day of it…They were hit with a 6.8 earthquake which destroyed bridges, homes and businesses in the North. On the heals of the earthquake, there were fears that a tsunami may have been triggered, and though the tsunami threat seems to be over for now, they are still on tsunami watch as a large aftershock could trigger a deadly wave with very little warning. Also as a result of the earthquake, a nuclear power plant suffered significant damage which lead to a leak of radioactive water into the Sea of Japan.
Earthquake. Tsunami. Dangerous Radioactivity.
Does anyone else think this sounds like the opening scene to a Godzilla movie?
