Japanese earthquake 2011

As I'm sure you all know by now, Japan suffered an 8.9 magnitude earthquake yesterday, which triggered a devastating tsunami. Aftershocks happened; Nagano, on the other side of the country, experienced a 6.8 earthquake and tsunami warnings are ongoing for the entire country.

It didn't affect my family; the disaster struck north of Tokyo and my relatives all live in Tokyo and points south, especially around Nagasaki.

The only people I know in that part of Japan are my college roommate's parents. They were able to get a message out that they are ok.

Here's a link for news, tweets, etc. : Google's Crisis Response

And if you could pass this one around--forward it, email it, share it-- it's a list of organizations you can donate to for disaster relief. You can also text and donate $10 to the Red Cross.

Give to Japan
