Video: Japan’s Earthquake Triggers Tsunami Waves Surge Nov 2016

A 7.3 magnitude earthquake shook northern Japan at 5:59 am on 22nd of November, 2016, triggering a small tsunami.

Japan Meteorological Agency said that the epicentre of the earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 km (6 miles).

The quake however did not kill or injure anyone, nor did it damage the Onagawa Nuclear Plant, though Tokyo Electric Power Co was still checking if the other nuclear plants in Fukushima are damaged.

The biggest quake recorded to hit Japan was a 9 magnitude quake, causing a large tsunami which led to the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl, a quarter of a century earlier.

Below are some videos of the tsunami waves surge:

Powerful Typhoon Neoguri battered Okinawa on Tuesday bringing heavy rain and strong winds, high waves up to 14 meters (46 feet) high and storm surges that were set to intensify as the storm passed the main island of Okinawa in the evening.

The Okinawa government reported four people were injured, while a man was reported missing from a fishing boat in rough seas off Kyushu.

Typhoon Neoguri is one of the strongest and biggest typhoons to hit during Japan’s summer months.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said that Typhoon Neoguri was packing sustained winds of 194 kilometers (120 miles) per hour and gusts up to 240 kph (148 mph).

Local airports were closed and about 550,000 people were advised to evacuate their homes.

Forecasts show the storm tracking toward Kyushu island and then across Japan’s main island of Honshu.

On the northern island of Hokkaido, fierce winter weather blankets everything in white. The Sounkyo Hyobaku Matsuri, or Ice Waterfall Festival, rewards those who venture off the beaten path and brave the cold climate. The small town of Kamikawa, where the festival takes place, lies on the edge of Daisetsuzan National Park, the largest national park in Japan, which is worthy of a visit on its own.

Sounkyo Hyobaku Matsuri features an otherworldly landscape of frozen waterfalls, glowing ice caves and igloos to explore. Just come prepared, as temps often plummet to -20C. After experiencing this winter wonderland, stay in one of the local hotels across the street, many of which come equipped with a natural onsen (hot springs). You can thank us for that tip later.

Running from January to March, Sounkyo Hyobaku has one of the longest running periods of any festival in Japan, so it’s an easy link-up with other winter festivals in the region.

Anwar In Japan: Edited, Recycled Photo Again?

So Anwar Ibrahim wants us to know that he is now in Japan and that there was a big crowd of medias surrounding him at the Narita Airport.

(Please click here for “Is Malaysia The New World Power?”)

But the photo does not look right.

Why are there so many Malay cameramen and reporters waiting for him in Japan?

And the weirdest part is, some reporters and cameramen were not even looking at his direction but were focusing their cameras at some other directions.

So, it was an old photo taken in Malaysia that was edited by his supporter!

It is very hard to understand why Anwar posted that photo.

What about his integrity?

Without integrity there will be no credibility.

But maybe he knows that Pakatan supporters can easily be tricked and do not mind to be tricked by their leaders.
