Here's some crazy interactive footage taken from the satellite of the tsunami as well.

Massive quake hits northeastern Japan
A massive earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan on Friday has killed at least 95 people. Many people are missing, while authorities are warning Pacific coastal areas to be on the alert for possible tsunami of up to 10 meters high.
Japan's Meteorological Agency says the quake on Friday afternoon had an estimated magnitude of 8.8, making it the most powerful one to hit the country since record-keeping began in the late 19th century.
The quake struck at 2:46 PM local time, off the Pacific coast of Miyagi Prefecture, at an estimated depth of 24 kilometers. Tremors in Miyagi registered an intensity of 7 -- the maximum level on the Japanese scale of 0 to 7. Strong tremors were felt hundreds of kilometers away, including in Tokyo.
Several magtitude-7-class aftershocks continued off the Pacific coast.
The Meteorological Agency has issued major tsunami warnings to broad areas, from Hokkaido in the north, to Tokushima in the west. The agency says these areas could see water levels surge by more than 10 meters.
At 3:50 PM Friday, a tsunami surging higher than 7.3 meters struck Soma Port in Fukushima Prefecture. A 4.2-meter tsunami hit Oarai in Ibaraki Prefecture at 4:52 PM, while tsunami more than 4 meters high struck Kamaishi and Miyako in Iwate Prefecture at 3:21 PM.
NHK has learned that at least 95 people have been killed in the quake and tsunami, including 41 in Iwate Prefecture, 11 in Miyagi Prefecture, 26 in Fukushima Prefecture. Many more are missing.
A 6-year-old child was killed in Miyagi, when the ceiling of a supermarket collapsed. The child's mother is reportedly in serious condition.
At least 97 fires have been reported in 9 prefectures -- the largest number of them in Miyagi. In Chiba Prefecture, a massive blaze is raging at a Cosmo Oil refinery. A man in his 30s has reportedly suffered severe burns all over his body.
Narita Airport near Tokyo has partially resumed operations. But several airports remain closed in northeastern Japan, including one in Sendai.
Shinkansen bullet train operations have been called off for the day in central and northeastern Japan, and all train services have been suspended in the Tokyo Metropolitan area. Expressways are closed to traffic in northeastern Japan and in central Tokyo.
According to electric power companies, 4.4 million households in northeastern Japan are without power. Nearly 4-million more households are also under a blackout in the Tokyo Metropolitan area.
The Meteorological Agency is warning of more possible tsunami and aftershocks. It says people in areas where major tsunami warnings are in effect should evacuate to safer ground.

Japan quake magnitude raised to 9.0
Japan's Meteorological Agency says the magnitude of Friday's earthquake that hit the Pacific coast of northeastern Japan was 9.0 instead of 8.8 as earlier announced.
The agency made the correction on Sunday morning after analyzing seismic waves and other data. The magnitude is equivalent to that of the 2004 earthquake off Sumatra, Indonesia, which triggered massive tsunamis in the Indian Ocean.
The agency says the focal zone of Friday's quake was about 500-kilometers long and 200-kilometers wide. Destructive movement along the fault continued for more than 5 minutes.
The Meteorological Agency says only 4 other quakes in the world have recorded magnitudes of 9 or over.
The largest was the magnitude 9.5 quake that hit the Chilean coast in 1960, killing more than 1,600. The quake also triggered tsunamis in Japan, leaving 142 people dead.
The 2004 quake off Sumatra registered a magnitude of 9.1. Subsequent giant tsunamis killed more than 200,000 people.

Translation will always sound funny but oh well nice attempt to whoever did this one:)It's always been like that
You'd be peevish
And hide away what's important to me, wouldn't you?
And because those places where you’d hide them
Would always be the same
Today I’ll wait for you there first
The seasons have brought along the evening sun
And the shadows stretched and found me
With a shocked expression on your face, you stared at me
And suddenly your face turns sour, you look as if you're pouting
When I say “I’m sorry"
You say “Then come over here
"Hey, see this! Look! Look!
"Our shadows have overlapped each other"
Because our umbrellas are colliding against each other
I can't walk in a straight line
And you laugh after seeing me like this
So I do it as well, like how you showed me
I pouted the same way you did
You, who’s smiling so gently
All this while, all the time
You've been so important to me that I could cry
So I pouted on purpose
And before you could respond to me with a "I'm sorry"
I kissed you gently
From now on, it’s okay if you say slightly willful things
But please say them only to me
“Because it's too troublesome"
Because you’re not being frank with me
I wonder why you can’t just say it?
“I like you" just these words
Sometimes I just want to hear you say it
Today is the day our names overlap each other
The day that our love starts to sprout
The rainbow is really pretty
No, it’s you that’s prettier
To the you who’s starting to be shy
