Today, at 1446 local time, a magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck off the eastern coast of Japan, approximately 80 miles east of Sendai.
I am fine. Didn't even notice anything here in Kyoto. However, it's looking like there are going to be a lot of people who aren't going to be "fine". Exact casualties are difficult to pin down at this point... there are at least 200 deaths reported now, and that number will likely increase as time passes.
My heart goes out to the victims of this tragedy.
It Was Fun
