Hoping you are all safe after the earthquake.
That would be "earthquakes", according to http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Maps/region/Asia_eqs.php: the latest one 7.1 magnitude, but an earlier one evidently 8.9.
Tsunamis are supposed to hit us but I can't figure out exactly when. I just know that we are not in an advisory area but my friend is. Luckily she is up higher.
Stay safe, cutNglue. One of my students is from Japan and his family is leaving tomorrow morning to visit for 2 weeks. I'll have to ask him today if everything is okay where they are going.
Prayers for you and yours, Cut.
We were fine and so was our friend. We weren't in mainland where it all started though. Plus the tides were low so that helped.
I just logged on to check on you, cut. God bless.
I was wondering as well...stay safe!
Stay safe like the other's have said... I hope my friends family is safe as well!!!
LIkewise, Hawaii and the entire west Coast, from Alaska to Mexico, is under a tsunami watch.
Prayers for all.
Alice... Amen to that as well!!!
cut, glad to hear that you and your family are fine.
I also send out prayers to all that are affected by this tragic event. Bible prophecy is definitely being fulfilled. Matt 24 There will be earthquakes in one place after another.
Thoughts and prayers to those in Japan, Hawaii, California and the small islands in the Pacific.
Thinking of all of you!
Video from the Washington Post...... Watch the water move...
My Japanese student has spent the entire morning watching CNN (in Japanese); he came in with a note this morning asking if it would be okay for him to do this. We are more than happy to oblige this request--if anyone was at home they would have kept him home today, but didn't want him to watch when he was by himself.
That is awful, we must keep these people in prayer
MrsC let him know we are all thinking of him, family & friends...
I was thinking of a foreign exchange student we had at school when I was in school... I haven't talked to her in awhile, but still thinking of her & her fam!!!
Cut...was worried about you.
MrsC, saying a prayer for your student.
My friend in Okinawa emailed to say she was being evacuated. Looks like I will have lots of hugs to give at the daycare this afternoon - about 25% of my students are Japanese.
scmom, hope all goes well for their families.
One of my coworker's son is stationed in Japan. I texted her and she says right now they are fine, but they are under warning.
Bless you all.
I've just sent an email to one of my grade 8 students from last year who has lots of family and friends in Japan and Hawaii to see if everyone is okay. Another student from that same class last year moved to Japan over the summer and I'm hoping to hear that he and his family are okay as well.
Keep Us posted MrsC
Hugs and prayers to everyone who is being affected by this. I heard it on the radio this morning. Devastating.
Our concern is the younger brother of one of our priests, actually an elementary school classmate of mine.
He's in the Solomon Islands. We were busy with the funeral all morning, so no one had been in contact with him.
But apparently there's a large mountain, and in the past they've gotten word with enough time to evacuate to higher ground.
Still, we'll rest easier when we know he's OK.
Prayers to you all! Be safe, cutNglue!
My prayers are with the people of Japan.
My prayers are with all who are affected.
Good heavens: there's been a pretty much constant string of earthquakes of 4.9 intensity or higher since that big blast - I mean, at least six an hour of that intensity except for around 8 am PST, when there were "only" three 5.0 quakes - most of these quakes have been off the east coast of Honshu, which is in the north of Japan, but in the last hour or so there have been two (6.6, 6.2) off the west coast as well.
This is an incredibly sobering list: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Maps/region/Asia_eqs.php
The tsunami in San Diego was pretty small potatoes, but I gather that Hawaii has taken a beating.
Oh wow, I had no idea there were so many earthquakes after the big one.
Cut, so glad to hear you are fine.
Nuclear reactor at risk..
Yeah, I heard that this afternoon. How terrifying.
Just saw on CNN radiation levels 1000 times normal....
Is there an article about the radiation levels? I see it's a story highlight, but there's no link to read about it.
What affect will that have? How do they fix that?
I'm sure there more news on radiation levels than this.......

That's all I can find too!
I just heard back from my student--his friends and family are fine and he just reached my other former student on the phone. What a relief!
