With my family living in Japan, I was terrified. This earthquake was apparently 100 times more powerful than the Haiti earthquake. There are now, 60 people dead... there are sure to be more soon.
An earthquake isn't just an earthquake in Japan. Since it's an island, surrounded by water, it can mean tsunamis. It can also mean fires. It means roads flipping over.
I couldn't get a hold of my family over the phone. I posted on facebook, called and emailed. My dad responded via email/facebook minutes following. Those must have been the longest minutes!
My family is safe. My mom had to walk 5 hours to get home. My dad is still cooped up in his office. My sister and her baby are okay but she hasn't heard from her husband...
Japan, you always impress me with your earthquake preparedness. Please just take care of my family and all of our friends.
Now we wait to see what havoc this causes for other islands with tsunami warnings.
