Good luck to all our members in Hawaii and if we have any in Japan or anywhere else in the path. I have family in Hawaii but seems like all is OK at the moment.

I just heard on WGN Chicago that they have given the all clear for the US mainland. I hope this is correct.

I'm chatting with a friend in Japan right now via FB. She works in Tokyo and lives north of there. The worst thing they are dealing with near her is the high speed rail has been shut down and they are having to walk every where. Four hour round trip for her to work! Further north in Japan is a different story of course!

Just saw a warning that they are telling everyone here on the Oregon coast to evacuate.

Thoughts and prayers to Japan. I have lots of family in Taiwan and My first thoughts were for their safety. Luckily the Earthquake's damage was minimal for them and Tsunami warnings never came to be.

Our prayers and thoughts also go out to those in Japan and anyone affected by this tragedy. Earthquakes scare the heck out of me, so these stories are esp frightening (never mind that I live and grew up here in LA).

Sorry, but I've been out of the loop for a few hours for a work meeting. Just got home and see that there is indeed still a warning for the US west coast. I hope it passes soon. WOW. The videos are just not to be believed. Very sad.

The video of the flooding in Japan is just shocking. Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone effected by this disaster.

This thing is going to take days, weeks and months to unfold. It just keeps looking worse all the time, although they are starting to report the numbers of people being found alive and being rescued. Like I heard them point out today, they really have gone through three major catastrophe's, the earthquake, tsunami and the failure's at the nuclear plants. Any single event would be huge anywhere in the world and they have suffered all three.

IMO, by the time its all said and done we will be talking tens of thousands of deaths. Ive seen some of the estimates thus far and it looks like they are greatly underestmating the loss of human life.
Yesterday I was at the golf show talking to one of the Mizuno reps from Japan and you could tell how upset he was and how his mind really wasnt on golf. I told him that a lot of us were thinking about the people of Japan and hoping/praying for the best.
Ive donated what I could afford to the Red Cross and I strongly urge everyone else to give what they can.

At least this will create a bunch of jobs and boost the Japanese economy a little bit. I think they need to reevaluate their immigration laws as well after this fiasco.

No doubt. Hopefully the rest of the world will rally to the cause and help them rebuild.

Its also caused the price of oil to drop, so gas prices have come down a little. Id definetly be willing to pay a bit more for gas in exchange for the lives of all those people thought.

I just heard they evacuated the Fujikura plant due to radiation. Sounds like this is going to be very bad for Fujikura due to all premium shafts like Speeder and Rombax come from this plant.
