Earthquake hits Japan

A 8.8 magnatude earthquake hit Japan today, causing a Tsunami. Many are without power, and a nuclear power plant could have been damaged. The Tsunami appears to be heading toward Hawaii. I will try to keep you posted.

[UPDATE]

The tsunami that hit Japan had waves that were 30 feet high and went six miles inland. The death toll is expected to rise above 1000.  Hawaii and California weren’t hit as hard, getting a 9 foot tall wave and a 8 foot tall wave respectively. A nuclear power plant is having problems cooling the reactor, but there has been no sign of radiation leaking.

 

I hope those that are still missing are found unharmed. Those who pray, pray for their safety.
