I hadn't yet heard the news but have just done a google search.

Sounds pretty bad, and with tsunamis on the way now, too.

There are already reports of deaths. I hope and pray that no more people will be hurt.

Just read tsunami waves have hit Northern California and they're taking precautions. Wishing all of you and yours well.

Let's hope the experts can get nuclear reactor close by that is heating up cooled down. I'm praying for all the victims and families and animals. This is just awful!

I can't stop watching this on the news. It's just devastating. One of the most powerful earth quakes on record. The cooling tower is 1000 times hotter than normal. Japan (and the world) does not need a meltdown on top of the devastation. I hope my prayers are heard.

I know what you mean Frodo! I keep checking on CNN...between this disaster and what's been going on in Libya. So many things happening lately makes you wonder what is next.

I have been amazed at how relatively calm the Japanese people have been through all this. God be with them!!

I just hope our forum friends are all OK. So many are without power so it may be hard to know for a bit.

The full moon is the weekend of the 19th which means record high tides, a combination that seems to cause quakes. I live in a quake zone so I am prepared but I want to buy a portable stove because I don't want to eat all of my food cold and I want to be able to have tea. Any suggestions for something that is very small? Somewhere I packed away a couple of cans of sterno but I don't know how to cook on them. If you put a pot on the can the flame will go out. Is there some kind of special rack I need?

If anyone wants to donate, you can here:

Red Cross:

Your money will go towards providing clean food and water, and warm blankets for the earthquake victims. I know it seems like your money won't do much, but it can actually do a lot. Each dollar spent can literally help save a life. It's crazy out there, and it might seem bigger than all of us, but if we all do something about this, be it by donation or just talking about it, we CAN make a difference.

Such a tragic situation in Japan. A US Navy vessel that moved into the area to help is showing high radiation levels aboard after 3rd explosion at Nuclear Plant. I hope that situation gets under control. That would just be another horror to add to what is already going on if there is a meltdown. Crying or Very sad

Anyone who lives on the West Coast should be prepared for an event between the 19th and 25th according to Russian and British scientists. There is no excuse for not having extra food and water. Don't expect the government to save you. Remember Katrina? Japan is better prepared than we are and they have been waiting four days.

The footage I've seen just seems to get more and more disastrous and frightening...With boats and cars "standing on their noses" so to speak and piles of rubble so high that rescue crews can't get through them to search for survivors...I'm in a part of the world where earthquakes just don't happen - I mean I've been subjected to very minor tremors but I just can't imagine what it must be like to feel the earth ferociously rumbling like that beneath my feet...I imagine that the feelings of helplessness would be just beyond crippling...I imagine that the post-traumatic stress caused by this will debilitate countless lives..My heart just aches for everyone who is suffering because of this..

The 50 workers that stayed to try and deal with the reactor may very well knowingly be paying the ultimate price of their lives to prevent total meltdown.

The US and others that sent in heavy equipment had to wait for Japan's leaders to Offically request help befor sending anyone or thing in.

This is heartbreaking the lives lost, and others lost all but their lives. Worst natural disaster recorded!

I spend summers teaching Japanese students that have come to the US to be exchange students and need a language support program before they enter US schools in the fall. They are the most precious students I have ever worked with. Many of the students have come from the areas that have been so hard hit by the this disaster. It is paralyzing to see the devastation. I have been in contact with some of the students but others are missing. Please pray for them. Crying or Very sad
