JAPAN EARTHQUAKE HELP SOURCES:
The earthquake in Japan left me speechless for right now, other than thinking of ways to help the wonderful Japanese people. I can't even go on about geology and such right now. I'm simply blown away at the sheer magnitude of this one, and then the aftereffects. It's deadly tsunami even reached the California coast, just where I was, and it did millions of dollars of damage thousands of miles away from the epicenter of the quake! This thing is huge, and there may be yet more large scale after effects.
Anyways, let's focus right now on urgently helping our fellow human beings in Japan. Please do so. Here are some links.
And here is a people locator. If you know people in Japan, or know of friends that do, please spread this people locator around so that they know about it.
Please help! Thank you!
