Tsunami Footage from Northern Japan… and HOLY SHIT.

For those like me who just rolled out of bed, we missed the news of an 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan which set off a devastating tsunami in the northern part of the country. There was an alert that the Oregon coast might get some tsunami blowback—but it appears that will result in just some rather largish waves, and minimal damage. BUT HOLY SHIT.
