There was one coastal village in Japan that years ago the Mayor diverted money meant for other projects to build a huge solid gate that would stop a big tsunami. People at the time thought he was an idiot and right up until the tsunami hit Japan they still thought he was an idiot. But when the tsunami was close they closed the gate shut and the tsunami roared inland up to the gate and got no further and the village stayed dry. The people of that area now look upon the Mayor who died some years ago as their savior and a man of great forward vision.

Over reaction or not, if you can get outside immediately do, if you're with family or just at a house wait by the letterbox or street outside or to a planned location. Go into the middle of the road away from the buildings. When travelling walk or take a bike, *don't drive* in a city. This is crucial, you'll block the roads, cause panic and anger and more hazards when the water hits. Walk, you'll make it if you start as soon as the shaking stops.
Always have an emergency plan; fire, earthquakes + tsunamis. There's no such thing as over reacting when it comes to safety.
*Most important things;* Get down, get under the table or stale surface and hold. In a ball, cover the back of your neck. You could be trapped under the table or desk if the ceiling collapses but you have a bettet chance of survival than being crushed.
If you can get outside, _get outside._
→→ *"If it's long and strong, get gone."* Don't wait for a public announcement. Don't wait for the siren. You *walk* or take a *bike* and get as far up hill as you can and *_you stay there until the safety siren has been given._*
If there is earthquake weather always, always be alert. Even if 9/10 it's nothing or a storm.
*Have a plan and make sure **_everyone_** who is involved knows it.*

I really love the way how Japanese people explain things, so detailed like a poem, it really makes you get a sense of what it was like

The amount of garbage people here making jokes. Yeah sure it's been a while and no one seems to care to much now, but what the hell? To all those garbage people, how would you feel if you were one of them and someone just jokes as if it was a comedy sketch?

The saddest part is the nuclear plant explosion. People had to go inside the plant with high amount of radiation. And they mentioned it was as bad as what happened in Chernobyl. It’s just terrible. I admire these brave heroes.
