Earth shifted its axis? WOW--that is huge.
Thanks for that info.
There was also a shift mentioned when the earthquake hit Peru.
Wonder how much that will effect us?
why is this in the political and social forums?
maybe education and science forum would be better?
Yeah I had read that one too. I also learned that we lost a second or two from the day because of the severity of the quake. I live in earthquake country too and have been through my fair share of them. But I cannot even begin to wrap my head around an 8.9.
Pray pray pray. It's cold in Japan right now. I don't think most Japanese people have enough space to really stock up of things.

But people were running from building in what they were wearing, sometimes without shoes. It was snowing. The water is cold. It is just horrible beyond comprehension. Pray.
I have been following the news closely. This is unimaginably huge. I feel for the people dealing with this horrific catastrophe.
Last year's powerful Chilean earthquake also shifted the earth's axis which resulted in a shortened length of day due to the increased speed of rotation of the Earth's axis. I'm assuming the same has occurred with this earthquake.

What an admirable people the Japanese are. Their quiet, patient demeanor as they wait in blocks long lines to get the few groceries that are available really makes me weep. My heart just goes out to those people. God bless them.http://www.theaustralian.com.au/bundle- …...

Japan is going through a severe disaster of natural calamities and nuclear radiation. The earthquake and tsunami took several lives and the nuclear radiation from various nuke plants may result in serious health threat to the people who are there in Japan. We should be deeply concerned here at...

I know many Hubbers continue to be shocked at the massive level Nine (9) Earthquake that has befell Japan with the accompanying Apocalyptic Tsunami that followed. I know you want to help with a few dollars. I have put a link on my profile page to the right place.
