    No problem for HK:

    Tsunami Information Bulletin

    Tsunami Information Bulletin issued by the Hong Kong Observatory at 3:55 p.m. on 11 Mar 2011.

    A severe earthquake of magnitude 8.4 occurred near east coast of Honshu, Japan at about 1:47 p.m. on 11 Mar 2011.

    The earthquake has generated a tsunami which affects the Pacific. However, it is unlikely that Hong Kong and the neighbouring coastal areas will be significantly affected. The rise in the local sea level is expected to be less than half a metre, which is much lower than the normal day-to-day tidal variation of about one metre.

    1. Please stay tuned to the radio or television for further information.

    Dispatched by Hong Kong Observatory at 15:50 HKT on 11.03.2011

    On the BBC it is edged up to an 8.9 earthquake.

    Guangdong will be hit at 8:30pm tonight. But it is not expected to be huge.

    Are you sure? If that is Narita, then most of Chiba is flooded.
