    Earthquake Tsunami Tokyo Disneyland Flooding Now

     

    The earthquake today in Japan has affected Tokyo Disneyland's Disney Sea.  Disney Sea has been flooded and the parking lot is overflowing with water.  What next?  I can't take my eyes of this news event.

     

    This is from Inquirer.net

     

    TOKYO - The car park at Tokyo Disneyland was drenched with water-logged segments from  the ground following the 8.9-magnitude earthquake that rocked Japan's  Pacific coast Friday, police said.

    It was earlier reported that a tsunami might have caused the  inundation but police said the phenomenon was due to liquefaction of  soil caused by the intense shaking of the tremor.

    There were 69,000 people at the Disneyland and the adjacent Tokyo Disney Sea, built on a landfill in Tokyo Bay, when the quake occurred, a spokesman at the local Urawa police station said.

    There were no injuries or property damage reported at the theme parks, he told AFP.

    "The visitors have been evacuated to safe places but there are many  puddles due to liquefaction around the theme parks," he said.
