I was so scared this morning while seeing the news on German television about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I was more scared when I heard that nearby countries like Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, China will also be affected by the said catastrophe. While taking my lunch, I also heard over the radio that around 20 countries will also be affected by the said calamity.
I immediately called my family in the Philippines and told them about it. Since our house in the Philippines is very near the sea, my sister said that there are already big waves on the ocean and they can feel the tremor especially when the big waves hit the seaside.
Condolence to the families from Japan who had lost their loveones from the said natural calamity. I am also offering my prayers for the safety and comfort of all the people in Japan and all neighboring countries who are also affected by the said disaster.
God bless us all and let’s all continue to pray!

32 killed in major tsunami after 8.9 Japan quake
By MALCOLM FOSTER, Associated Press Malcolm Foster, Associated Press –
TOKYO – A powerful tsunami spawned by the largest earthquake in Japan’s recorded history slammed the eastern coast Friday, sweeping away boats, cars, homes and people as widespread fires burned out of control. Authorities said at least 32 people were killed.
The magnitude 8.9 offshore quake was followed by at least 19 aftershocks, most of them of more than magnitude 6.0. Dozens of cities and villages along a 1,300-mile (2,100-kilometer) stretch of coastline were shaken by violent tremors that reached as far away as Tokyo, hundreds of miles (kilometers) from the epicenter.
