The Earthquake and Tsunami in Sendai March 11, 2011Posted by Nights4Saturn in Uncategorized.
As I am sure most, if not all, of you already know that the Japanese city of Sendai has been hit with an magnitude 8.9 earthquake, the largest ever to affect Japan. The quake and resulting tsunamis have devastated the northern portion of the country.
Compared to most other Americans I am probably a lot more sensitive to what happens on that funny little island across the sea, but the devastation that has occurred is truly flabbergasting and should be brought to the attention of all. Watching buildings shake, cars being tossed around like children’s toys, and entire buildings floating across farm land while aflame is truly surreal. It’s almost like watching scenes out of a big budget action movie, except here there is no real-life Snake Plissken to save the day.
I admit that when I first heard the news my thoughts immediately went to the safety of my favorite idols. Fortunately, most if not all of them appear to be safe. I would like to extend my condolences to all of Japan. I hope you and all of your loved ones are safe and for a speedy recovery.
