Japanese earthquake and tsunami

Filed under: Catastrophes — by Arnold Bogis on March 11, 2011

It will take several days to fully grasp the full consequences of the enormous 8.9 earthquake that struck Japan earlier today.  For updates, videos, and other information the following links may be of some help. If you know of others I have not listed, please note them in the comment section.

BBC is updating information regularly as well as providing general information on earthquakes and tsunamis:

Yahoo! News has compiled a large selection of video footage:

Huffingtonpost

Update:

The Atlantic Monthly has posted, and is updating, a web page of photographs:

They also have done a much better job of listing websites where one can follow earthquake-related developments:
