Japan Earthquake

An earthquake measuring 8.9 magnitude hit near the east coast of Honshu, Japan yesterday afternoon. Resulting tsunamis crashed into the coast lines. Many are dead, and the total damage is not yet known. Aftershocks, some of them quite large, continue to hit the country. I am praying for my friends in Japan and urge all of you to donate to the Red Cross relief effort. If you are in the United States, you can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10. If you are not in the U.S. you can go to to find a way to donate.

Google has launched a Person Finder to help those trying to locate people in Japan, or those in Japan trying to get a message to loved ones. For those without emegencies, it is best to use twitter or skype to keep phone lines open.

I have 128 followers on this blog. If we can all donate just $10 we can make a good contribution to those who need it so badly right now, and in the coming weeks as Japan recovers.


  1. Seismic activity is the result of a solar flare on 13-15 February 2011.
    The largest number of thermographs (Portable Thermal Imaging Cameras), to search for people under the rubble by fixing heat of the human body, have the Japanese Self-Defense Forces. Мost of these cameras mounted on military equipment. Some quantity of IR cameras have their manufacturers in warehouses.
    Dubai can help to Japan more than any other. because in Dubai is concentrated 20% of construction equipment (mostly cranes) that may needed to clearing concrete rubble.
    Аdequate logistics for the delivery of this equipment has the U.S. Army and the operating companies of largest aircrafts An-124.

  2. Thank you for always supporting those in need. I will be making my donation to the Red Cross!

  3. We can all make a difference. Thank you for the encouragement.
