The massive 8.9 scale earthquake in Japan has triggered off tsunami warnings in at least 20 countries of the world, including the USA. The tsunami with 10 meters high waves has already hit the Japan coast, killing many people.
The Hawaii region of United States has received warning from the National Weather Service and Governments of at least 20 other countries have been put on red alert. The National Weather Service has given warning to countries like Japan, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Fiji, Mexico, New Zealand, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and the United States.
The Governments of these countries have gone for a massive evacuation drive of the people staying along their coastline and this has resulted in business loss worth billions of dollars. If tsunami with high waves hits the coastline of these countries, then thousands of people and many cities and towns are expected to get destroyed by tonight.
Ivan Cabrera has said that tsunami waves travelling at 800 kilometers per hour may hit the coastline. She also feels that an earthquake of the magnitude of 8.9 can trigger more than one tsunami. With the level of earthquake going from 7 to 8, it means that the earthquake is becoming 1000 times stronger.
