On March 10, 2011, there was a large earthquake off the coast of Japan. The first estimation was that it was a 7.9 on the Richter magnitude scale, which was then upgraded to 8.8 and later 8.9. Word of the tsunami came before the video clips.


MeFites checked in from Japan, telling everyone how they were doing and how things were on the ground.
