The whole part of Kesennuma City was swept by massive tsunamis.



The most massive earthquake, which was the magnitude of  9.0 and terrible tsunamis affected the most northeastern parts of Japan. I can not accept the fact that more than 400 people were killed and more people have been missing. I have no words to express how sad the event is. Very shocking and heart-breaking.

According to the news, about the bodies of 300 people have been found on a beach in Iwate pref, who were swept by tsunamis.

I, and my family are not affected but some friends live in the affected areas.

We have experienced many earthquakes through years and got prepared and trained for earthquakes  but this one is diffinetely the worst one.

I found your blog when I left a message on fer's plot. It is good to know you and your family are safe. The extent of the death and damage is devastating. Our families prayers are for everyone affected. We were placed on tsunami alert as well but the first waves appear to have passed us.

It is just horrible to see. You think it just can never happen where you are and then they were talking about the tsunami hitting Hawaii and my grandbaby is there. Hawaii was very lucky.
Sorry to see this happen and I hope aid comes quickly to those in need.

Thank you for your warm wards and prayers. It took about 20 hours since the first earthquake happens and more devastation and damages which were caused by tsunamis and fires have been reported. If you have any friends and relatives in Japan, I strongly hope they are safe.

日本に津波のニュースから見て、心が痛んで体もふられました。最後の新潟にあった強い地震の時そこにいました。怖かったです。友達たちが無事で祈っています。亡くなった人の数が千以上超えてとても悲しいです。

I'm so glad to know that you are ok. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan. Take care and I hope there will be no more quakes and after shocks and the nuclear plant problem will be ok too.

So very happy you're OK and hope your friends in the impacted areas are OK too. Yes I was called to donate to help provide relief for Japanese children...it is such a small thing to do, but willingly done. I am depending now on our country and others sending in people who have been trained to help others in situations like these. We are one world, more so now than at any other time in history. Prayers for you and your country.

I would like to thank all of you for warm words and prayers. Many aids and rescue teams from other countries has arrived at the devastated ares and started their missions.
I set up a new page showing info, articles and HP address of companies which request your donation. Please go to "Earthquake in the Northeastern Japan" shown above.

Been watching tv everyday. Can't believe the devastation. I support the Amer. Red Cross, they always seem to be there when needed.
