OMGoodness I am just watching video of the tragedy that unfolded in Japan overnight. The 8.9 magnitude earthquake that hit is now setting off tsunami waves that our headed towards the US. It is the 5th largest earthquake on record in the world since 1900. It is amazing that we can see something like this that is happening 1/2 way across the world! The video and pictures are literally earth shattering. They are now telling people on our west coast to take cover in higher ground for fear of tsunami. They are even sending out warnings to Hawaii. Unbelievable. I am not at a loss for words often, but wow. They are saying waves could hit Hawaii by 8AM EST and our west coast by 10 AM EST. That is less than 3 hours away. I cannot imagine the fear these people are feeling. Especially those in Hawaii. I mean...where do they all go???
Thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who have been involved and to those in harms way.
