Salam. Earthquake hits Japan. Shocking. Finished worked this afternoon, and went home. Switch on the ALL THE NEWS CHANELS and there 'Earthquake hits Japan'. Today Friday 11th March 2011 at 3.30pm Japan time.
12.06pm on 9th March 2011, i received text from my Uncle, 'Salam. March 19 akan terjadi SUPERMOON, tahun 1955, 74, 92 & 2005, tsunami melanda Acheh. 1974 cyclone attack Darwin. March 19 belum pasti apa akan melanda. Jauhi lautan 1 minggu & sebelum tarikh itu. Doa agar dunia aman. Amin.'
Today is 11th March 2011. I received text on the 9th march 2011. The date to be aware and just HOPE AND PRAY that nothing bad will happen is on the 19th March 2011. One week before that date should be around 12th March 2011. So today is 11th March 2011. I was shocked. I immediately texted my mom and told her to watched the news. And i forgot about texting my Uncle. I met him just now at the family gathering, and he told me and i told him i wanted to text him earlier but i thought he would have watched it earlier than me. But he told me he watched it late after. Oh!
Never assume. Next time update should not miss him out on this. When i saw the news Earthquake hits Japan, i remembered i saved the text. I quickly looked into it again, and wow???!! That's scarry. In the new the tsunami warning for Hawaii, Phillipines and a few countries. And yes, last year i heard about the New Zealand, but did not expect it happened.
Next, probably HAWAII, TAIWAN AND PHILIPPINES. Also mentioned in the news, INDONESIA too. Hopefully the warnings is taken seriously. Grieved and sorry to hear hundreds killed in tsunami after 8.9 Japan quake. When i saw the news, i was upset and sad, sorry for the children too. Everything just gone. Left with enormouse damage.
Police said 200 to 300 bodies were found in the northeastern coastal city of Sendai, the city in Miyagi prefecture, or state, closest to the epicenter. Another 110 were confirmed killed, with 350 people missing. Police also said 544 people were injured.
Warnings blanketed the Pacific, putting areas on alert as far away as South America, Canada, Alaska and the entire U.S. West coast.
A tsunami warning was extended to a number of areas in the Pacific, Southeast Asia and Latin America, including Japan, Russia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Chile. In the Philippines, authorities ordered an evacuation of coastal communities, but no unusual waves were reported.
