8.9 Earthquake, Tsunami

At 5:30 this morning, we were awakened by a "reverse 911" phone call: an emergency service that alerted us to a tsunami warning created by earthquakes in Japan of magnitude 8.9. We are unable to reach our friends in Tokyo, Yokohama, Shizuoka, Choshi and Kamisu. We pray that they and their loved ones are well.

We can do little but check FaceBook, Twitter and YouTube feeds for information. As the day progressed, we collected these links. Please share what information you have.
