I'm sure that I speak for many people here when I say that I hope that our puzzling friends in Japan, and other areas affected by the massive earthquake and the resulting tsunami, are OK. The videos that have been shown here in the U.S. are truly awesome and awful, in the old senses of the words: awe-inspiring, such as to cause one to disbelieve one's own eyes.
FWIW, the West Coast of the U.S. has had a fair amount of damage from the tsunami. At least one confirmed death, and millions of dollars in damage to marinas and other facilities.
Be safe, everyone.
