A horrific earthquake hit Japan this morning, an 8.9 on the Richter scale. Between the earthquake itself, and the reportedly 24-foot-high tsunami that followed, the devastation is literally breathtaking.
AP's the only wire service carrying photos off of NHK TV at the moment, but what I've seen so far is absolutely shocking. My prayers go out to everyone who's been afflicted by this horror!

The tsunami has apparently passed Hawaii without causing any damage. Our prayers continued in hopes that the West Coast escapes damage equally well.
