Good Morning Brandeis,

As many of you heard, Japan was hit by a 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.
This is the most devastating earthquake that has ever hit Japan and one of the largest in the past 100 years.

I have spoken to many of my friends in Japan via facebook, and while there is a lot of damage in the northern part of the country, Tokyo is relatively unharmed. Most of my friends have lost electricity and have no heat or utilities, but they are all alive. Many are still feeling aftershocks which are shaking their homes and buildings, but have experienced little damage.

There is a relief fund sponsored by Global Giving for emergency relief. Please give to help those in need!
