Pictures in the News | March 11, 2011

Friday’s Pictures in the News begins in Japan, where an 8.9 earthquake off the Pacific coast sets off a massive tsunami, resulting in floods, fires and the closure of airports and transit systems. The earthquake struck 80 miles offshore at 2:46 p.m. Friday Japan time. Homes are swept by water following the tsunami in Natori City;  evacuees stand around Shinjuku Central Park in Tokyo; and people look for supplies in a store in Tokyo that has almost sold out of food and drink as people are unable to return home after the earthquake.

Protesters attend Friday prayers in Benghazi as troops loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi intensify their counteroffensive to retake ground from out-gunned insurgents; thousands of protesters take to the streets across Yemen to show President Saleh that his offers of reform would not soften their demand for his resignation; and Israeli security officers fire tear gas canisters during clashes with Palestinian youths in the mostly Arab neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem.

    not the best news to wake up to. and I believe this is not considered to be the "Big One" to hit Tokyo.
    los angeles has been long overdue and can only hope and pray that L.A. will be truly prepared. we've been spared in the last 16 + years of massive devastation.
