Earthquake in Japan

By now you must have heard the news about the earthquake which happened yesterday in Japan and is still going on with after shocks.
When I saw the news, I felt it was surreal... Japan is known for many earthquakes each year (they get 20% of the worlds earthquakes, most above 6.0 on Richters scale.) But this was the biggest earthquake ever recorded in Japan and the 7th largest in the whole world...
I immediately checked up on my friends in Japan and most of them are alright, I haven't been able to contact a few but I really hope they are safe!!
Today I also checked the status of my fav Japanese celebrities, here, here and here. and they are all safe.
Japan, my thoughts are with you!!
