Way back in 2011, just months after a tsunami devastated the area, a cab in Ishinomaki, Japan picked up a young woman in a long coat.

When the driver told her the area she was looking to go was deserted, she shivered and asked weakly "Have I died?"

The cabbie turned around at that and the woman was GONE!

This is scary!

A massive earthquake struck off the coast of Central Chile on Wednesday, with a magnitude of 8.3!

The quake was so powerful that officials issued a tsunami watch — and are now saying that "widespread hazardous tsunami waves are possible."

According to the National Weather Service, the waves pose the most danger to the coasts of Chile and Peru.

The NWS also said it was monitoring the situation to see if Hawaii and up and down the west coast of the Americas could be impacted, saying:

"A tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter. An investigation is underway to determine if there is a tsunami threat to Hawaii."

No word on the investigation yet, or how many casualties came from the earthquake or its aftershocks.

Our heart goes out to everyone affected by this natural disaster.

Filed under: Scary!Viral: News

Whoa! It's like San Andreas but for real! And WAY scarier!

Friday morning there was an earthquake off the coast of Alaska that measured a terrifying 6.8 on the Richter scale.

The epicenter was far from any dense population — about 400 miles SW of Anchorage, and 34 miles under the surface of the ocean — and thankfully so far there have been no reports of casualties or damage. Whew!

And more good news: the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has officially stated that there is no danger of a distant tsunami, which can sometimes affect coastlines thousands of miles away with larger quakes.

Still, pretty scary!

The largest earthquake ever to hit mainland Alaska, way back in 1968, was a 6.5 magnitude.

Ewan McGregor And Naomi Watts Do The Impossible To Survive A Tsunami

And we're already crying! No joke.

If the trailer for The Impossible (above) is any sign of what's to come, tears will be flooding out of audiences' eyes when it hits theaters on December 21.

Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts star in this drama based on the true story of a family's struggle for survival during and after the tragic tsunami that struck Thailand in 2004.

There's nothing too graphic, but we're going to go ahead and label this as NSFW for anyone who is easily embarrassed by their own emotions.

KFC Thailand Apologizes For Insensitive Tsunami Ad

KFC Thailand

As they should!

It should have never happened in the first place, though!

KFC Thailand has had to do some damage control and apologize for posting a Facebook message that urged people to hurry up and order a bucket of chicken… during Wednesday's tsunami scare!

So basically as people were being told to evacuate from beaches, the company went ahead and said this:

"Let's hurry home and follow the earthquake news. And don't forget to order your favorite KFC menu."

That's extremely insensitive! Whoever thought that was a good idea — and then the person who gave permission to post it — should be fired. That's a no-brainer.

More than 8,000 people in Thailand died in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami (230,000 in Indonesia), so you can see why people are so upset!

The breast milk of about 10,000 mothers living in Fukushima Prefecture, home to the debilitated Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, will be tested for radioactive contimation.

Details have yet to be finalized, but officials are working out a plan to obtain the breast milk samples from new mothers in the region. The cost will is said to be about ¥50,000 per person.

Last May and June, just months after the Japanese earthquake an tsunami, traces of radioactive cesium in the breast milk of 7 in 21 mothers were found.

So, so sad! Japanese is still dealing with such life-threatening effects of the disaster that occurred in March 2011.

Here's hoping that the government finds a way to help these mothers and their newborns.
