Earthquake

Well, I can now say I lived through the biggest Earthquake in Japanese history to date. 8.9
That's big.

It was 240 miles north of me, and we've been feeling aftershocks since 2:45 this afternoon.

Trains are all stopped, so a teacher offered to drive me home. Took us 4 and a half hours to get home. I'm sure he's still driving to his home thanks to the traffic and Japan's poorly planned street system.

My roommate and I are safe, as are most of the people I know. There were a couple more big quakes in Fukushima where two friends of mine live and their church. I haven't heard anything from them since those quakes hit, so prayers for them would be appreciated.

And prayers for the coastal areas of Japan hit by tsunami, esp Sendai and Ofuneto.

God be with us.
