As most of us know by now Japan has been struck by a monumental earthquake.. hitting levels of 8.8; which in turn struck a tsunami of epic proportions. With reports coming in at between 2-300 people dead, a missing boat and train and thousands upon thousands lost.. March 11th will be remembered as of one of the worst natural disasters to strike Nihon.
Night time is upon Japan at the moment.. So the true photo’s of what the outcome will be wont show for another few hours.. My thoughts go out to all my friends currently in Japan.
Kyodo news agency is reporting that about 88,000 people are missing.
I called up my friend Tim this morning to get an update – “The place is mad! people are walking along train lines to get home.. its freezing here dude! I just wanna go home!”
I have been through several of Tokyo’s earthquakes before.. nowhere near this level but I can tell you.. its a very scary experience for someone who comes from a place were we can choose to ignore the worlds natural disasters.
Here we have a shot from outside Option2. Looks like there making best efforts to get their rides outa there before things get worse.
These photos from Andy show that Ebisu has also been struck 😦
It seems there’s more to come to this.. More waves are to be expected. I wish everyone out there the best of luck.. Keep your spirits high guys. You’ll pull through…
