Have been checking to see if you were ok. Someone on your Facebook page was asking about you too. I hope you don't mind, I told them you were in Vancouver but didn't know anything else. I had checked there first thing to see if you were all ok.

I'm glad to hear that you and the family are OK Thian, and that you were not in Japan when the quake hit. Best of luck returning home and I hope that all your friends and belonging weathered the quake and the floods.

Hi Thian,

I was up late last night and have the NOAA weather alert system on my PC, I was looking Yahoo JP auctions over and saw the alert of the 8.9 huge quake right when it hit @ approx. 2:46pm GMT, and I stayed up till around 5am this morning our time EST. I also watched actual real time film of the Tsunami measuring up to 10 meters high or approx. 35 foot walls of waves moving at over 10 meters per second hit many areas of low lying ground and ports both commercial & residential areas & city harbors in various parts of Japan.

There's a great deal of destruction, and I hope that it subsides quickly and that it's not as bad as it looks, but I know it's one of the (worst disasters) in Japan's history in over 140 years.

Our "Prayers & Thoughts" are with all the people in & around Japan.

Sincerely,

Jimmy
