Earthquake in Japan 東日本大地震 9

There was a huge (9) earthquake in Japan yesterday. Fortunately Kyoto (I live) did not have any impact but northern part of Japan had devastating results, especially coastal line of Northern Japan. Sendai is the place people I know live as well as my friend's family. I have been trying to reach them but the line was either disconnected or busy. I am very concerned about them.  My friends who live and work in Tokyo had also impacted of the quake. Many workers were stranded in their offices and stayed overnight there. My friends who were at home told me their frightening experiences.  I sincerely hope that many people could reach their families and friends.
