This was a friend in the Tokyo area:
We didn’t have the planned blackout today in our area, but another is planned for tomorrow (3 hours). We can only buy about $12 of gasoline–not even 1/4 tank–very long lines. There were no eggs, milk or bread in stores. Evacuated people are in need of heat blankets, water and food. It’s going to be cold tonight. Many have relatives who are still missing.
One of the bloggers I enjoy reading is also in the area and posts regular updates of the situation. Please visit Living and Learning so that you will know how to pray for those who are living through this.
