Geology Professor Bob Reynolds at COCC says the magnitude of the Japan earthquake and tsunami is eye opening: “I'm amazed at the size of the earthquake, even more so the intensity of the waves that came ashore to move buildings and bridges. Pretty impressive as well as devastating.” The 8.9 magnitude earthquake caused a 23 foot tsunami and has killed at least 300 people, but the death toll is expected to climb higher. The quake hit at about 3 a.m. Japan time. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, its the fifth largest earthquake in recorded history.
