Yes; an 8.9 earthquake around 2:25 a.m. eastern time, 11:25 p.m. Pacific time
If you are on a coastal area in the Pacific, you'll want to keep your eyes and ears on the local news.

If you live in Hawaii, there is already a watch; I expect watches will be issued for portions of the U.S. west coast, Mexico's west coast, and possibly the northern portion of South America's west coast.

yea. I actually dont know much on the details, but DONT think we should freak out just yet.
The news skews things like crazy -- there was a "giant" earthquake in Chile where i used to live and frankly it wasnt as bad as the news made it out to be.
Best we can do is wait until we actually have the unmediated facts.Source(s): im majoring in marketing. minoring in japanese. i feel bad for the ppl, but feeling bad isnt going to get anything done...so just waiting for the facts, and if i can actually offer support (im being serious right now, i made a question about sex yadee yah earlier...but in all honesty thats a joke) I will.
