Japanese quake & tsunami

Recommended Posts

All the phone networks (moblie and landline) are down in Japan, due to so many people calling.

The earthquake has also triggered a Tsunami Alert for New Zealand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, and others, with the Red Cross saying that the wave could go right over some Pacific islands.

The earthquake was 8.8 on the Richter Scale, which makes it Japans largest earthquake and the 7th largest earthquake on record.

It's horrifying. Our clock radio is OH side of the bed and he has the volume set at a level where I can't quite hear the news so I didn't realise until I logged into my email :shock: . I get email alert whenever there is an earthquake and they are still coming in every few minutes for the area all between 5.5 and 6 Mb :shock:


I have a Japanese friend with a young daughter living near Tokyo I hope she is ok.
