According to news reports, a devastating tsunami has killed hundreds, resulting from an 8.9 earthquake, one of the largest on record, which hit Japan's east coast Friday.

The tsunami reached Hawaii hours later, sending warnings out through the U.S. west coast, Alaska, as well as South America and Canada.

As many as 300 were found dead in Sendai, Miyagi, the city closest to the epicenter of the quake, police said. The death toll is likely to continue rising.
