    Tsunami rolls through Pacific, Sendai Airport under water, Tokyo Narita closed,

    Hi from Avherald

    Tsunami rolls through Pacific, Sendai Airport under water, Tokyo Narita closed,

    Japan's Sendai Airport (elevation 2 meters above sea level, partly up to 7 meters above sea level) is currently entirely under water after a massive Tsunami reported to be up to 15 meters (50 feet) high rolled through Sendai following a 8.9 magniture earthquake in the Pacific with the epicenter just 150km east of Sendai. People on the ground fled onto the roofs of the terminal buildings and into the control tower of Sendai.
