Massive 8.9 earthquake and tsunami hit Japan – I’m OK thank God.

Massive 8.9 earthquake and tsunami hit Japan – I’m OK thank God.

There was a massive earthquake followed by large tsunamis in Japan today.  I am safe and fortunately live in an area of Kyushu that was relatively unaffected.  There has been a huge amount of damage and deaths up and down a large portion of the country.  The videos on the news are unreal and look like a disaster movie.  It was one of the strongest earthquakes recorded in the last 100 years according to news sources.

Some links to news:  CNN video and report, MSNBC video and coverage

(map “borrowed” from tenki.jp.  It shows the Japanese earthquake scale which goes up to 7 (7 being the worst))

  1. Glad you’re already dude, first person I thought about when I heard of this.
    Devastating stuff though, can’t imagine how many lives this will disrupt and turn upside-down, not to mention those that are lost.

  2. Glad you are ok. You, your friends, and the entire country are in our thoughts here at DBMI in Pittsburgh.
