 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami | Nippon jishin to tsunami

I was woken by the telephone ringing at 4 am. At first I ignored the telephone ringing but thought who calls me early in the morning. I am glad I picked up the phone. It was my son alerting me about the earthquake in Japan and the tsunami. He wanted me to learn about what was going on in Japan and to not be too alarmed. Always the calm youngster looking out for others..god bless his kind heart for thinking of us when he should have been thinking of himself. His girlfriend is stuck in an airport in Japan and his friends live near a sea wall. We were both were stunned when his friend was on the phone, went to the seawall and said he was still going to walk his dog despite the tsunami. I had not grasp the full magnitude of the situation until I watched in horror on UStream live coverage of the earthquake. I start reading the news reports, tweets and Facebook messages. My son conveyed to me that he was capable of handling the his situation but he was concerned for his dear girlfriend who is stranded at the airport with minimal resources and no transportation. As much as I wanted to jumped into my car and drive to the end of the earth…he ensured me their was nothing I can do nor can I drive over 6000 miles to the island. I am speechless as I watched the quake ripple through the island on my computer screen. I stayed on the phone for at least  4 hours until the telephones died…he assured me that he would be fine, he was worried about his girlfriend more than anything. #PrayforJapan and the world. Our prayers go out to all the friends and family members of people affected by this disaster.

The catastrophic earthquake struck Northern Japan, 150 miles off the coast. The quake hit on Friday, March 11, 2011 at 06:25:51 UTC, with a magnitude of 8.9.  This is one one of the highest earthquakes ever recorded on earth. The quake is being described as roughly 1,000 times the size of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, in terms of total energy released. The USGS reports that this is the 5th strongest earthquake in the world since 1900.

The Pacific Tsunami Center has issued a warning not only for Japan, where a 10-meter (33 foot) high tsunami is already sweeping the country, but for the coast of Russia, Marcus Island, Guam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Marshall Island, Midway Island, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea.

Live coverage on CNN International, Al Jazeera, and NHK, is showing massive tsunami waves of debris, mud, and flame wiping out massive sections of coastline. We are watching people dying, swept up in these massive waves of mud and debris.

The Pentagon said there was no reported damage to any US ships or facilities based in Japan, with all US military personnel in Japan accounted for. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said that US Ambassador to Japan John Roos has moved the US Embassy’s command center “to an alternate location as a precaution given the many aftershocks in Tokyo.”
