Not to be pessimistic or anything...but this tsunami event could be far worse than the 2004 Sumatra tsunami. The number of dead & missing is grossly underestimated by the media at this time (1,000 dead/88,000 missing)...or simply the true devastation of this tsunami event isn't quite clear yet. 1,300 miles of coast-line was hit by a large tsunami with wave surges measuring 24 to 30 feet in height. The most devastated areas were only 6-8 feet above sea-level...and there was only 10-15 minutes of warning to residents living on the coast. Not a lot of time to evacuate...unfortunately.

Does anyone know how densely populated the north & northeastern coastal regions were??? Is there any way to find out??? There's an estimated 1.1 million people living in Sendai alone.

The island of Hokkaido is located at the north end of Japan, near Russia, and has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk, and the Pacific Ocean. The center of the island has a number of mountains and volcanic plateaus, and there are coastal plains in all directions. Major cities include Sapporo and Asahikawa in the central region and the port of Hakodate facing Honshu.
The governmental jurisdiction of Hokkaido incorporates several smaller islands, including Rishiri, Okushiri Island, and Rebun. (By Japanese reckoning, Hokkaido also incorporates several of the Kuril Islands.) Because the prefectural status of Hokkaido is denoted by the dō in its name, it is rarely referred to as "Hokkaido Prefecture", except when necessary to distinguish the governmental entity from the island.
The island ranks 21st in the world by area. It is 3.6% smaller than the island of Ireland while Hispaniola is 6.1% smaller than Hokkaido. By population it ranks 20th, between Ireland and Sicily. Hokkaido's population is 4.7% less than that of the island of Ireland, and Sicily's is 12% lower than Hokkaido's.
[edit]Seismic activity
Like the rest of Japan, Hokkaido is seismically active. Aside from numerous earthquakes, the following volcanoes are still considered active (at least one eruption since 1850):
Mount Koma
Mount Usu and Showashinzan
Mount Tarumae
Mount Tokachi
Mount Meakan

In 1993, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 generated a tsunami which devastated Okushiri, killing 202. An earthquake of magnitude 8.0 struck near the island on September 25, 2003, at 19:50:07 (UTC).

In their ever increasing line of BS, I heard a news report last night (Friday, Mar12) where the teleprompter reader said there were "hundreds dead"

Hundreds?

Do they really expect us to believe there's like only a few people and farm animals out there?

And yet people are so quick to slam anything you find on the internet.

We'll probably get more accurate data from RT video.

God I HATE television news. :bang;
