  • UGH... that makes me sick. I know people there. This just happened last week as well. We haven't heard anything from them yet. I hope everyone is all right.

  • I just saw this on a news update.

    Bloobird, I hope everyone is OK, too. That has to be tough, to not know =(

    I didn't hear anything about any injuries, only that a tsunami warning was not issued.

  • Good gravy. I know there are earthquakes every day on our planet, and I don't know if it is just more publicized now, but it seems like bigger ones are happening more often.

    I hope they have a large amount of survivors.
