The image (click on it for full size) shown is a list of all quakes worldwide leading to and after the mega-quake that struck northeastern Japan late Thursday night Kansas City time.

The list was made at 1:50 p.m. CST.

The list contains 18 aftershocks of 6-magnitude or greater- one of those was a 7.1.

As of this post around 2:15 p.m. Friday afternoon Kansas City time- Japan's NHK-TV reports "350 dead and 550" people "missing."

The resulting tsunami has caused heavy damage in Crescent City California and at least 1 death- according to KVAL-TV in Eugene OR.

Four people were pulled out to sea there- two have been found alive but one of the four died and another is missing.
