A big earthquake

A big earthquake of magnitude 8.8 occurred in Japan yesterday. The area where I live in is seismic intensity a little over 5. My town was cut off, and the signal was thrown into a commotion at one time without functioning.

Japanese Tohoku region becomes the great disaster by a massive tsunami, a fire. A dead person and the missing person exceed 1,400 people.


  1. Yukari-san, so glad you posted. I hope that you and your family are OK and that damage wasn't much.

    Thanks to FaceBook, I was able to communicate with my family right away (they are in Tokyo).

    It is so sad to see the diseaster on TV...I hope you are able to move around and have enough food.

    Thinking of you...stay safe! xo

  2. A friend of mine is currently in Tokyo, she went there only some days ago to visit her father and relatives/friends. She mailed me she's safe but I am very worried about the meltdown news from Fukushima... I'm thinking of you and all the people affected by this triple catastrophe. Take care and stay safe!

  3. My thoughts and prayers for you and your loved ones. My step-mom and her entire family lives just North of Sendai... BIG HUGS to you!
