Massive Earthquake in Japan

Wow huge earth quake in japan yesterday, 8.9 on the Richter scale. I hope that everyone in japan got away from the cost safely. Seeing the destructive power of all that water is scary. Engineers are the real hero’s of this day, my thoughts go out to the peoples who have been affected by this┬ádestructive┬ánatural force.
