I saw that this a.m. when I turned on the news. Words cannot describe how I feel.

It's rippling onto Hawaii right now then expected to affect Cali within a half hour.. Maui is getting 7 foot waves and they're rising..

My lil brother is stationed by the Navy in Guam. No word at all from him yet... it is the middle of the night though, hopefully he's fine and asleep.

One of my close friends lives in Tokyo. No word from her yet, but I'm sure she's fine since Tokyo wasn't affected too much.
Some petrol placethingie exploded. And 200-300 bodies were found in the north-east near a beach. And a passenger train has gone missing. :/
thank god Japan has been educated well when it comes to earthquakes.
