I learned about the earthquake that happened in Japan at around 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon Philippine time when I received an e-mail from a friend asking us to pray for all people in Japan especially our colleagues assigned in our main office in Yokohama because they are experiencing a big earthquake at that time. Not just an ordinary earthquake (occurrence of earthquake is just an ordinary thing in Japan), but a really big one.
Minutes after I received that e-mail, news, pictures and videos of what happened in Japan was already circulating in the internet and tsunami warnings were advised in different countries including the Philippines.
As of this writing, aftershocks and large scale fires are still on-going especially in the city of Sendai as per BBC's news. It's really scary.
Let's keep on praying for the safety of all the people who are still in danger brought about by the effects of this devastating earthquake that happened today in Japan.
God bless us all.
