OMG the poor people. Having been through a 7.1 and 6.3 magnitude earthquake here in Christchurch that killed lives. I can't imagine how a 8.8 magnitude earthquake felt. And unfortunately Japan was hit by tsunami and more warnings has been made.
The earthquake itself was some distance but the sheer size and the tsunami has caused horrible damage.
Best wishes to those in Japan and elsewhere who are impacted by the Tsunami.
