Earthquake and Tsunami hits Japan

Friday, 3/11 Japan was hit by an earthquake registering 8.9, with a tsunami quickly follwing. This is the 5th largest earthquake since 1900. It been noted that they only had 15-20 minutes to evacuate villages and towns before the tsunami hit. Thousands have been reported missing and feared dead. In one city alone almost 9,500 are missing. It's so very sad. My prayers are for the Japanese
