As you all know by now Japan was hit by an 8.4 earth quake.
Not good for those poor people who live there. AND as a handful of you may know Sita has left or DID leave to go to Kwajalein Island. It is VERY flat, almost no elevation whatever. I know because I was there in 1982 on my way to the Micronesian Islands. I am hoping the size of the wave diminished enough so as not to inundate Kwajalein. Unfortunately there are no cell phones there and she told me she has no access to the internet. I sincerely hope she was not there when the wave came through.

Sita doen't leave for Kwaj until Monday night. Thankfully they didn't get whacked by this last Tsunami threat.

It was a long time sine my visit to Kwajalein. I searched for NEW information on the island and found several new photos of the place; it's amazing how things have changed since I saw it last!

There is a coral reef around the island and I now understand that the reef adds some protection against the power of these tsunamies.
