What happened in Japan broke my heart, but to see photos of the aftermath is even tougher to take in.  As a car enthusiast too, this is also sad to see.

Spoon DC5 goodness, destroyed during the tsunami/earthquake.

Let’s take a closer look…

My Prayers Go Out To Japan

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on March 10, 2011 by prolifik1

Quite unbelievable on what I’m currently seeing on the news. My thoughts and prayers go out to the residents of Japan.

Tokyo (CNN) — An 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit northern Japan on Friday, triggering tsunamis and sending a massive body of water filled with debris that included boats and houses inching toward highways.

The epicenter was 373 kilometers (231 miles) away from the capital, Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey said. But residents there felt the tremors.

The quake rattled buildings and toppled cars off bridges and into waters underneath. Waves of debris flowed like lava across farmland, pushing boats, houses and trailers toward highways.

In Tokyo, crowds gathered in the streets and tried to reach relatives via cell phone.

Scenes inside office buildings showed papers strewn all over the floor and people clinging onto seats and desks.

Such a large earthquake at such a shallow depth creates a lot of energy, said Shenza Chen of the U.S. Geological Survey.

It caused a power outage in about 4 million homes in Tokyo and surrounding areas.

A tsunami in the Pacific was moving closer to other shorelines in other countries, said CNN meteorologist Ivan Cabrera.

It triggered tsunami warnings for various countries, including Japan and Russia, the National Weather Service said.

“Earthquakes of this size are known to generate tsunamis potentially dangerous to coasts outside the source region,” it said.

“Based on all available data a tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter.”

The quake was the latest in a series in the region this week.

Early Thursday, an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 struck off the coast of Honshu.

A day earlier, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck off of Honshu, the country’s meteorological agency said.

The largest recorded quake took place in Chile on May 22, 1960, with a magnitude of 9.5, the USGS said.

This is pretty random. Never expected this…

GT Channel:

According to Japanese websites, J’s Racing president Junichi Umemoto has been arrested for attempted murder.

Full translation of:http://news.tv-asahi.co.jp/news/web/html/210124004.html

The police have arrest a 43 year old man related to a hit and run incident which happened in downtown Osaka. The suspect arrested for attempted murder is Junichi Umemoto who is a auto repair shop director. Late night on Jan 22, while driving a car, he hit a man walking and tried to leave the scene. Eiji Fujikawa, 39 years old, a colleague of the man held onto the mirror of Umemoto’s car. Umemoto continued to drive and dragged him approximately 100 meters before Fujikawa let go. Fujikawa-san broke his skull is now unconscious and in critical condition. The suspect is saying “I was scared of repercussions and kept on going. I didn’t mean to kill him.” On his own blog Umemoto introduces himself that he has entered over 100 official races and is an active driver.
