    I was watching the local news on NHK here in Tokyo earlier tonight, and here’s what they reported:

    The Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) miscalculated the epicenter for the earthquake posted above.
    1. The actual epicenter was 100km closer to the shoreline than they first said, as a result of which…
    2. They got the arrival time of the tsunami completely wrong. It arrived 10 minutes earlier…
    3. Their tsunami advisory should have covered a much larger section of the coastal area, but they failed to issue the correct warning.
