    You can try the Google Person Finder to find your friend, here's the link: http://japan.person-finder.appspot.com/?lang=en

    And as most people here, I instantly thought of Sora too, and it's very good to know that you are ok.

    And to help Japan here's a link with all the organizations that are helping right now:

    It's so sad to hear that the victim numbers are over 1000 and it's going to get higher....
    Although no one can go back and make a new beggining, anyone can start again and make a new end.

    Now I'm stuck in a train with a lot of commuters due to suspension and delay of train service. We just felt another aftershock on the platform but everyone here seems to have strong willingness to go to work. It's great to see people keeping the work ethic and the spirit of cooperation high even in a time of emergency.

    Many of us now have a phone app that detects the primal wave of earthquake and notifies it. So, even in such a packed train, some can tell others that "Brace youself, it's coming" before impact.

    Tay, PM me if you have any further info of your roommate (e.g. full name, age and where she came from) to find out if she's okay.

    Now Apple is providing those apps for free. How nice of them.

    Sadly, another explosion just happend in #3 unit. The container of the reactor is okay and the inner pressure is stably under control. What they have to do now is to patiently keep cooling it down.

    btw, I'm so so sorry I haven't replied sooner to this thread. This is terrible tragedy and I absolutely hope the best for Japan. So glad to see you're fine, Sora.

    There was a Volcano that had been erupting a couple of weeks back that had gone quiet before the quake and then woken up again a couple of days later...

    Don't panic. As you said, radiation was detected in Tokyo, too, but it's a very tiny amount so far. However, it's a serious danger to people living in the vicinity of the plant. 400 mSv/h of radiation was measured around the reactor. I truly hope they'll safely evacuate.

    In my town, shelves in stores are half empty. Bread, rice, eggs, milk, tofu, snacks, kleenex, maglites, batteries, rechargers, radio and stoves have been all out of stock (even in online stores, too). My friend over another board reported that Burger King is out of frenchfries. This is not as a big deal as the damage of devastated area at all, but food/supplies shortage, traffic/logistics disruption and blackout going on here slowly let people's feelings down.

    Anything we can do to help your family, we'll try to do it, Sora. We look after our own around here.

    Thanks CB, Tay. I believe things will get better. What we Japanese people outside the most devastated area should do now is to get a grip and work hard to maintain economic stability for disaster restoration. Checking in on S4TE as usual really helps to keep myself sane.

    Thankfully, despite these supply shortage, there've been neither price-gouger nor looters in Japan.

    No shelter to hide here.
