We just got word from my brother Alexis, who lives in Fukuoka Japan. About an hour ago there was a magnitude 7 earthquake off the coast of Kyushu near Fukuoka. He’s OK, though his chest of drawers fell over. He says the TV and telephone are out, but his Internet connection still works so he was able to send us a message. Now he has to worry about aftershocks.
I just switched on the TV news, but I see no mention on CTV or CNN. Technorati, however, tells a different story.
I’m so glad he’s OK. I’m so glad he was able to tell us before we even knew it had happened.
