Earthquake & tsunami.

by
Although I live in Humboldt Bay, California, I'm safe, as most of my city (Eureka) is on a low bluff that's just high enough to not be a problem, and our part of the region didn't get nearly the damage that nearby Crescent City, 70 mi. north, received from the tsunami.

My heart goes out to Japan, which took the brunt of this massive 8.9 quake and the devastating tsunami in the Sendai & Miyagi regions. Hundreds, perhaps thousands may have perished in this tragedy, but thankfully, not millions. Japan may take a couple years to get back on its feet.

Prayers to all.

While I was making my new mix, I looked over my shoulder to see what was on BBC World News and saw the live wall-to-wall coverage of the quake/tsunami. Finishing the mix and posting it, I went back to viewing the live feeds, dumbfounded.

The one clip of a skyscraper LITERALLY swaying to and fro made my blood run cold.

Skyscrapers built to earthquake standards do that, primarily to prevent the structures from breaking. When you live in an earthquake-prone zone (as I do), this is something you live with.

The scenes provided by NHK, by way of CNN, were just heartbreaking.

Seeing all the footage of cars and houses being washed away like bath toys....WOW! :O

I was making this https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=82511 and had the news playing with the sound off. When I looked over, I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

So completely gut-wrenching... :( Or seeing that one building become completely submerged as the camera looked on...... :(

I listen to all your mixes when they come in. You know I'll like them when I either comment or +fave. BTW, there're shortcuts to refer to submissions in the IB BBcode page.
