Praying for everyone! But I will say, I am kind of nervous because I’m honeymoon in Hawaii in a week and I keep hearing about aftershocks. I’m nervous!

I JUST heard from my cousin who is stuck at a train station in Omiya, but is OK.

I’m about 15 min from the orange county beaches, and it’s been crazy. i know it’s not as devastating as Japan but it’s still very scary having friends and family so close to something dangerous. i can’t believe people were out in the beaches today in such strong currents, and with whirlpools not too far. I’ve never seen a real whirlpool until today and the sights absolutely terrifying, they are huge.

my heart goes out to everyone affected, or know some one being directly affected. It’s tragic, and extremely heartbreaking. i keep putting myself in their shoes and asking those “what if that was me, or someone i love” and “what would i do if” questions. and I can’t even imagine it.

i’m praying for everyone

@adw2c: I was thinking about you last night when I saw the story.  I hope you are not in the area.  Stay safe.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Japan.

p.s. I was giving up swearing for Lent but i’ve slipped up at least 10 times so i’m going to donate the money I owe for that to the rescue efforts.

I’ve just seen this, it’s awfully scary ‘A massive explosion has hit a Japanese nuclear power plant where a meltdown is feared’ (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/, 12th March)

They haven’t been able to get it under control and are now evacuating the island… scary…

@Mrs Hedgehog: Just to clarify, they’re evacuating a 20-km radius of the plants, not “the island” (which would be the entire main island of Japan, ie a heck of a lot of people).

For those who understand Japanese, you can watch the live stream of NHK here:

I understand there are also live streams up for TBS and some of the other broadcasters.

My mother reports that Cablevision in her area is showing the Japanese channels for free (usually you pay extra) through March 17th, worth checking your local cable operator as well.
