Tsunami in Japan

Breaking news : Taken from news.yahoo.com



TOKYO – A powerful tsunami spawned by the largest earthquake in Japan's recorded history slammed the eastern coast Friday, sweeping away boats, cars, homes and people as widespread fires burned out of control. Authorities said at least 32 people were killed.




The magnitude 8.9 offshore quake was followed by at least 19 aftershocks, most of them of more than magnitude 6.0. Dozens of cities and villages along a 1,300-mile (2,100-kilometer) stretch of coastline were shaken by violent tremors that reached as far away as Tokyo, hundreds of miles (kilometers) from the epicenter.

***************

My sister in Terengganu called to say that they have been advised to stay away from coastal area, she said they were at Primula Hotel near Pantai Batu Burok (Batu Burok Beach) this afternoon and could see that the sea's condition wasn't good.. prayers for the safety of my family, friends and all.

and I also pray for my brother in Sabah as well, thou he said that he is in the higher ground and in the middle of the state, but I heard certain areas are to be on alert.

Condolences to the people of Japan, praying for them (I hope Nana and her family are well) and the neighbouring countries.

and praying for my beloved country...


"May we always be protected from any disasters...amiin.."

Must be careful nowadays,the world is becoming very unpredictable,
a tsunami could hit east coast states incuding Sabah and Sarawak if an earthquake triggered one in southern Taiwan or Japan.

This was very scary. My sister, her husband and my niece had to sleep at evacuation center because of tsunami threat. Their place is on alert level 2 for possible tsumani in the Philippines in the aftermath of this earthquake.
