I fear this earthquake in Japan is going to be terrible. Thankfully our friend in northern Japan is ok. We are keeping in touch by sms. Her nuclear power station has been shut down, so she had no electric. She walked the dark streets back to her home from work. Our friend endured several hours of her work place shaking which sounds very frightening. It just coming into spring in Japan and in the north the seasons happen later so it is still very cold and of course without electricity, there is no heating. Several friends called last night to check if our friend is ok.
This morning I hear that the death toll may be over one thousand and after seeing tv footage last night, I am surprised that the figure is not higher.
