The largest recorded earthquake in Japanese history hit 80 miles off shore the eastern coast of Japan on Friday. The quake registered at 8.9 and unleashed a 23 ft. tsunami that hit the northeast coast of Japan killing hundreds. Fox News reports 200-300 bodies were washed up on shore near Sendai City.
The Tsunami has already reached Hawaii, Alaska has felt its impact, and Southern California beaches are closed as they expect Tsunami waves to reach the west coast of the United States. @TimeOutTokyo is tweeting about the aftermath of the earthquake.
Please be in prayer for victims families, survivors and rescue personnel as they deal with this disaster. Pray for their recovery as well.
