The Powerful Tsunami in Miyagi, Japan

When I was done here yesterday, I suddenly tuned our TV in CNN channel only to find out that the Japan was hit a 8.9 magnitude earthquake. It was hit around past 2 p.m., there; it was past 1:00 p.m, here at that time. We were still shocked with the news when all so sudden they aired the tsunami slowly rising to the area of Sendai. I and my sister were screaming and trying to figure out if that was a roof or town slowly covered by a powerful tsunami. The tsunami was televised through a camera in a helicopter; the tsunami rapidly went to some houses, to the train, to the street. We could even see people running, leaving their cars behind to try to go to inland. I know we were only watching TV but it seems like we also feel their fears, we were catching our breath, and wondering if these people could still survive! I cried in silent, I never seen such scenes like that before and I was asking myself what if?

What would happen if a certain, a-not so equipped country could experience that? Japan is an established country compared to the Philippines, what will happen then if that kind of tsunami would reach here, although the government tried their best to relocate and evacuate residences here yesterday but could that be enough? In times like this, prayer is the only way we could do for us to recover from this calamity.

That was the 5th greatest quake that happens in the world since 1900. Is it a call for us to prepare for some unusual damaging calamity here on Earth? Is our mother nature gone so mad and that she wanted us to wake up, to tell us that this is the time we need to take care of her seriously.

I don’t know what to say, I believe that the people in Japan are still mourning of what had happened to them yesterday, my sincerest condolences to those people who were so affected. Especially to the passengers of that missing train that was swept away by that huge tsunami. As of last night, 88,000 people are still missing and until now the death toll and the missing people are still rising.

These were my shout out in FB yesterday, I was actually watching the news in TV, tweeting, and following in FB.

Kakaiba maningil ni Mother Earth, kaya sana alagaan na natin siya”.

It was more than like a movie! In just one blink of our own eyes, it changes everything. It happens so instant. Death toll and missing people in Japan still rises, numerous after shocks were still experienced. I hope and pray for those who were affected.

approximately 1,039 Filipinos in Miyagi, Japan I hope they are all okay, even though that area was hit by the powerful Tsunami.

In one blink of our own eyes, in one snap of our finger, everything just change and we could not even stop it.

In times like this, there’s only one we can depend on, and that’s HIM.

  3. Many people want to help out, but other than money or being an aid worker, there is another way to help by sending words of support and hope. You can send your message online to school children and emergency workers in Japan via Hope Letters at Hope Letters will translate them into Japanese and deliver them to local organizations for posting/broadcasting (when it is practical and effective to do so). Help give hope!
