The weather, currently.
Not the luckiest forecast tomorrow and a not-so-charming start to the weekend
Not the luckiest forecast tomorrow and a not-so-charming start to the weekend
Not too much green is likely on the Radar for St. Paddy’s Day as any shower activity should be spotty in nature. That said, we’ll be pretty packed in with the cloud cover in Portland tomorrow, and temperatures slide back a bit with highs in the low 50s. Expect only sporadic raindrops again on Friday before a soggy start to the weekend materializes. Don’t hesitate to hit the snooze button on Saturday morning as a steady rain falls and the breeze kicks up. Rainfall coverage and intensity decrease through Saturday afternoon and we should be able to embark upon our evening plans sans umbrella. —Lauren Casey

WATCH: Shaking, power outages, and flashes in the sky as 2 strong earthquakes hit central Japan
A major 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Japan, leaving 2 million people without power and triggering a tsunami warning. This quake comes a little over 11 years after the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the Fukushima region in 2011. 
While tsunami warnings are still in place and aftershocks are expected for the next several days, tsunami waves are likely to only reach a few feet in height. For reference, the 2011 tsunami reached a max of 130 feet.
Early footage and reports of the quake show major shaking and outages as well as a train derailment. Japan, fortunately, has some of the best infrastructure in the world in terms of mitigating the effects of earthquakes.
