My Nephew is There
Just read a Facebook post from my nephew who was stuck in a subway in Tokyo when the earthquake struck! He reported that he is OK and hopefully will stay so.
The pictures of the tsunami aftermath are devastating. Now tsunami warnings are out for Hawaii and the US West Coast. I certainly hope people will take precautions and stay safe!
The pictures of the water pouring over Japan are terrible with tons and tons of debris sweeping across farmland, homes, and roadways. I just saw a tractor trailer simply lifted and floating away.
The people of Japan are in my prayers, as is, of course, my nephew.
Most recent Facebook post from my nephew:
Update from Japan:
To all dear friends and family outside Japan who are checking in on the situation here in Japan: I am safe as are all my loved ones here. The images you are seeing on TV are mainly broadcasts of the severe earthquake-related disasters up north in Miyagi, Iwate, and Aomori Prefectures. Tokyo did suffer a very strong earthquake and we're still experiencing aftershocks (just felt one now), but we're managing.
