for the people in Japan. Because of their preparedness, the earthquake (upgraded now to 9.0) and the tsunami caused significantly less damage (in terms of human lives and property) than it would have anywhere else. Nevertheless, entire towns have been washed away. Japan's main island of Honshu was moved in its entirety eight feet (2.3 meters) to the east. We know people there and we are praying for them and trying to get in contact with them, but electricity is out all over the place, and water and food is scarce as well. Nuclear power plants are a huge concern too. Blogs and websites documenting the damage are ubiquitous; I'll just point you to Patterico since they're doing as good a job as any in collecting videos and keeping up with the news. Just pray that the devastation does not continue and that the people in Japan get the help they need as soon as possible.
