Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan

This morning I woke up and saw on my phone a bunch of pictures that said "Pray for Japan." I was wondering what had happened. So I went on to and started reading about the horrible tragedy that happened to the NorthEastern coast of Japan. The biggest earthquake that has ever hit Japan rated at 8.9 on the Richter scale happend this morning. So far there has been hundreds of people reported dead after the tsunami that followed the earthquake, and the number will continue to rise. There was over a dozen after shocks the biggest one being 7.1. Now there is news about it hitting hawaii, and eventually later today hitting the coast of California. This giant earthquake will be going in the top 10, unfortunately.
