An 8.9 earthquake struck Japan early Friday morning, and caused a tsunami that continues to pose a danger across the Pacific Rim. Hawaii, California, and Oregon are under a tsunami watch, with waves as high as 8 feet expected to hit land.

Skip to the 3:30 mark to see the insane level of devastation from the tsunami. Entire tankers were swept ashore.
Our thoughts go out to all of those affected. Stay tuned.
