I’m pretty sure you’ve heard by now but If not at 2:46pm Japan was hit with a magnitude 8.9 quake the strongest earthquake ever recorded in its history. causing massive fires, floods, and tsunami’s with the death toll still rising. Striking off of Honshu, Japan’s most heavily populated island and approximately 200 miles from Tokyo, the quake is already responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people and a tsunami that could strike the West Coast of the U.S. sometime today. Reuters is reporting that the death toll in Japan could exceed 1,000. Google has started a site for if you needed help finding a loved one. For more just look up on google for more info.
