Breaking News: death toll is 60 now in Japan?

Your thoughts?

Tijuana answers:

It’s going to go up, I’m afraid; the footage is terribly scary.

General information:

—————————

Midway Island has had a 8-foot surge as of 1:15 a.m. Hawaii time/3:15 a.m. Pacific/6:15 a.m. Eastern; more waves are expected, and powerful aftershocks continue in Japan, so being cautious is very important.

The magnitude 8.9 earthquake occurred just off the coast of Japan at:

Friday, March 11, 2011 at 12:46:23 AM (EST) – Eastern Standard (New York, Toronto, Jamaica)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 11:46:23 PM (CST) – Central Standard (Chicago, Mexico City, Costa Rica)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 10:46:23 PM (MST) – Mountain Standard (Calgary, Denver, Phoenix)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 09:46:23 PM (PST) – Pacific Standard (Vancouver, Los Angeles, Tijuana)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 08:46:23 PM – Anchorage
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 07:46:23 PM – Adak
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 07:46:23 PM – Honolulu

The first surges (6 – 7 feet) are expected to reach Hawaii at around 6 – 7 hours after the intial quake, and the west coast of the U.S. About 9-12 hours after the initial quake – about 3:00 a.m. Hawaii time (5:00 a.m. Pacific time/8:00 a.m. Eastern time), then around 7:00 a.m. Pacific time (about 10:00 a.m. Eastern time) for the northern Pacific Coast of the U.S. (Washington and Oregon), and about an hour or so later (about 8:00 a.m. Pacific time/ 11:00 a.m. Eastern time) in California. It’s getting to Washington and Oregon earlier because we’re due west of Japan, while California is somewhat southwest.

There is an excellent possibility that there will be more than one surge; just because one comes through and then is over with, it does NOT mean that there no others.

If you’re anywhere in the Pacific or on the Pacific rim, keep yourself informed:

Maria asks…

U.S. agents under greater attack on Mexico border what do you think?

Tijuana answers:

I just love this part:

Rights groups and academics say the rising border violence underscores the need for a U.S. Guest worker program ………..

Oh I see. If we don’t let them cross illegally they will attack us. Therefore we must let them in. Why would we NEED this type of person here? If they don’t get their way they go postal?
I think the rising violence along the border underscores the need for Marine snipers along the border. First one that takes a “pot shot” at US law enforcement gets dropped in his tracks.

This is great too:

“The continued demand for immigrant workers and narcotics in the United States means that stronger border security isn’t the solution. As a stand-alone policy, it will only increase the violence,” said Jose Maria Ramos, a security expert at the Tijuana-based research institute Colegio de la Frontera Norte.

What demand for(ILLEGAL) immigrant workers? And once again they will get violent? Oh please. Once we throw Johnny Sutton in jail , make him some illegals girlfriend, and allow the BP to SHOOT BACK the violence will cease.
A security expert from Tijuana? Since when are THEY experts?
