My heart is breaking for the people of Japan.  We lived there for four years.  I love the country, culture, people.  We lived at Atsugi Naval Air Station a little south of Tokyo.  Also nearby are Yokota Air Station, Zama Army base, and Yokosuka Naval Station. 

The military bases have so far been spared!  However, a 6.4 quake was recorded earlier today SW of the original quake.  This is NOT an aftershock.  It is a new quake.  Many are fearing that it will be like the other quake, a smaller quake that is before another big one comes!

And of course, the military bases around Tokyo and Tokyo itself is under a warning because of the radiation levels.  The levels are placing everyone on a warning not to go outside.  Please keep my friends in your prayers.  We still have quite a few friends that are over there!


  1. I have been praying for them every day.

  2. Thanks for keeping Japan in your prayers. It is a scarry thing that scientists are saying that this was NOT the "big one" Tokyo is expecting, but on an entirely different fault. School a
    started up today and I am scheduled to go in three days this week but I heard there were only 24 kids at school today. Extended vacations? fleeing? who knows when things will settle down.

  3. My thoughts, love, and prayers go out to all. Sandy (quiltincats)
