Japan Devastated by 8.9 Earthquake and Tsunami; Please Keep in Thoughts & Prayers

A 8.9 earthquake hit Japan earlier and then a huge tsunami devastated Japan afterward. This is such an awful tragedy!  Please keep your thoughts and prayers with the people in Japan.

Here is video of an office, this one in Sendai, near the epicenter which shows when the earthquake hit

From a Tokyo Supermarket:

Here is picture of the tsunami hitting the city of Sendai:

I found some excellent footage on Youtube of both the earthquake and tsunami which hit Japan earlier today.

The worst is yet to come if the nuclear power plant goes into meltdown. I hope that people here haven't deluded themselves into thinking that this can't happen here. Sitting right under Yellowstone National Park is a super caldera volcano, and if or when that baby decides to blow, it will devastate the entire country in unimaginable horrors.
