Tsunami Footage Breathtaking, Heartbreaking; West Coast on Tsunami Alert -- Schools Canceled Along Northern California Coast

We just saw some of the video footage trickling in from the epic disaster that hit Japan last night.

Unbelievable. Gut-wrenching. Scary as hell.

Nice to be safe here in the deep desert.

Just called a friend who lives near Half Moon Bay -- he says they've reported an eight-inch rise there. Nothing to worry about. But the school district called this morning -- school's canceled. Tsunami Warning Day.

CNN reports that a nuclear plant has been affected, but is "under control."

Reports seem to indicate this won't be as deadly as the 2004 Indonesia tsunami -- but that sounds like wishful thinking, looking at the pictures.
