Earthquake-Tsunami Devastates Northern Japan

posted by Mark Herringshaw

 


031111_quakefires_20110311_111033.jpg200 to 300 bodies have been found in a northeastern coastal area where a massive earthquake spawned a ferocious 23 foot tsunami Friday. The waves swept away boats, cars and homes. A passenger train with an unspecified number of passengers remains unaccounted for today. 110 are confirmed dead. 350 people are missing. 544 people were injured. The death toll was likely to continue climbing.

The magnitude 8.9 quake was the largest in Japan’s history with many more than 6.0 in magnitude. 

“God, again we pray for Japan. Bring comfort, protection, healing, and courage to the people in the North of the country. For those families who have lost loved ones, bring peace. Give wisdom to the leaders working to restore order.”

    Hope it makes people not involved in such a horrendous diaster, some time to stop, & re-think what things are truly important in life & how happy we should be for our health, the health of our children, our homes still standing & family nearby, or at least safe. We take too much for granted when there is so much hurt going on in the world.

  • Your Name

    I felt sadness when I saw what happened in Japan, people panic for the earth quake and tsunami. That was such a disaster that no one could have been prepared for and suddenly many lives ended that day. I hope this tragedy will make people realize friendship and family are very important and that peace in this world is so much better than to fight for no reason and ruin this wonderful world. I will pray for Japan to recover from this disaster and also for the people’s safety; I hope that you will join me in this prayer.

    Dear Lord give your strength and hope to the people. Open the hearts of others so that they may give to help the Japanese. Give wisdom to their leaders so that they may make wise decisions for the good of the people. Ease the hearts of those who have lost much. Please be with those who are working in the reactor and bless them and their loved ones. Lord, lessen the effects of the nuclear radiation.
