It is so sad for all those people in Japan.  Where do go when you are on an island & it happens so quickly?  They have so many trains underground too.  Even if you survived the earthquake, then you could be trapped & have the water come into the tunnels.  A horrible thing to have to deal with.  I pray that they will find their way to safety.

There is a highschool about an hour west of us and their marching band went to Japan for some type of contest or spring break. We heard from them that they were safe but, no utilities in their hotel. Don't know when they will be able to get back to Texas since flights are scarce and hard to come by if they are able to get to a city with a usable airport. The city that was at the center of the quake is a friendship city with Dallas and there are many exchange students over here and from here. I think this was a huge disaster and it really makes one grateful for what they have.

Our Texas band came home today. I understood them to say they were in Japan but, they were in Hawaii when the tsunami or what ever it would be called struck there. They said they felt the tremors and were glad to be home.

Keep all those involved in our thoughts and prayers.  Natural disasters can occur any where at any time.

Oh wow, Wa-Ha K -- waiting for those people must have been horrible.  I'm so glad they're safe.
Such  terrifying time for Japan -- for everyone.  Keep praying.

Almost all of the survivors are at evacuation shelters near their former homes sleeping in places such as cramped school gymnasiums, not far from message boards covered with requests seeking information on the missing and schedules for buses running to the morgue for body identification

"listed as missing" ...... Isn't that scary?  Can you imagine anything that horrible?   Let's keep praying for that stricken country.

Nancy,I don't even know those people and I get a sick feeling ever time I think of it.That country won't be inhabitable because of the radiation spill.How can you grow or raise food that is edible? That entire country needs all the prayers they can get.God bless all those poor people.

Radiation has seeped into vegetables, raw milk, the water supply and seawater since a magnitude-9 quake and killer tsunami crippled the Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant nearly two weeks ago. Broccoli was added to a list of tainted vegetables, and U.S. and Hong Kong officials announced a block on Japanese dairy and some produce from the region

If you look for good to come out of a bad situation when the area is at last rebuilt I can bet that the codes will be adapted to make the buildings more structurally able to withstand earthquakes and any tsunami that may occur.
"We" learned after Katrina and other disasters like Tornados,fires  and mudslides that the way structures are built has to change.  Codes change and the structures become safer.  It may not be of help now but others will benefit.
