    So far all I can say is; “oh dear” and “I’m glad in the sense of being happy that there was no damage to anyone or anything reported on land, etc.”


  2. Education says:

    Thank god and his grace that there was no tsunami.
    You do get the feeling that there can only be so many near misses.


  3. I have to wonder how long the Island of Japan will exist. I understand that part of the island dropped during the 9.0 event. Also, has anyone heard about what Mt. Fuji is doing? I haven’t heard any recent news about that volcano. There has been a lot of activity going on in the Southern Honshu Island region.

    My heart and my prayers go out to the people of Japan.

      Irene I share your thoughts, I wonder and worry will ground of Japan hold? I don’t know. Can anyone shed some light on this?

      My prayers and good will on to the people too.
