Massive earthquake hits Japan. Sendai airport flooded. Narita and Haneda disrupted

A massive earthquake with an 8.9-magnitude hit northern Japan earlier this morning triggering tsunamis. The epicenter was estimated at 373 kilometers (231 miles) north-east from the capital, Tokyo.

Narita and Haneda airports are shut down and there is major disruption to all flight schedules to and from Tokyo. Osaka Kansai and Sapporo airport are operational but they are going to fill up with diverted flights quickly.

Sendai airport is completely flooded. These horrifying pictures were captured by me from the TV broadcast of CNN.
