An 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit Japan today, triggering tsunamis and flooding the areas along the cost.

All of the news agencies are covering this (we’re tracking through CNN and BBC).  As of right now the death toll is around 10,000 and is rising.

There are tsunami warnings for 19 other countries and many Pacific islands.  Many of these islands are not as developed as Japan and lack the same resources.
