Friday: Earthquakes and Tsunamis

The video footage from Japan can fill you with awe and terror.  There’s a whirlpool that looks like God pulled the plug on the Pacific and a video of a tsunami wave hitting farmland in Fukushima prefecture that was captured live from a helicopter.  Follow The Lede at the NYTimes for the most recent news and videos.

Number 1 child in Maui was wakened early this morning by tsunami sirens and this time, unlike the 2010 scare, she evacuated to higher ground.  She’s sleeping in her car in a parking lot, although her location in Maui is not expected to get hit very hard.

Number 2 child was hoping to attend a semester in Japan through AFS.  She’s at school right now and probably doesn’t know the full extent of the damage.  I doubt that this event will change her mind about her destination.

We are very concerned for the people of Japan and the Russian coast who have been affected by this tsunami and hope that the loss of lives is minimal.
