The 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake & Tsunami That Hit Japan

March 11, 2011 at 11:19 PM

All my thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan today.

I was watching it live as it happened earlier today through live coverage/online streaming from Al-Jazeera and it was absolutely terriying, horrifying… Watching the water sweeping so fast wiping away boats, cars, some everything in sight with it.. One thing about Japan is that they’re prepared for it, so I’m sorta amazed that their buildings were built to absorb the impact and did not collapse as bad as Christchurch’s area. But the water… wow..

Beautiful Japan.. 🙁

I’m glad some friends I know are safe, be it in Christchurch or Japan.. but my heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims.
