My DH's co-worker has a son with his wife and children in Japan. They weren't hit too badly but they are finding it very hard to get provisions and the wife's family has been evacuated as they are very close to one of the reactors. We have been praying for them and will add your family as well.

Hoping all your friends and family are safe and well.
I know provisions are hard to come by and very limited, while they are going first to the desperately needed. On the bright side there is complete law and order there with absolutely no looting to speak of. In fact, the word looting does not even exist in the Japanese vocabulary.

It scares me to see a nation with the world's strictest building codes and preparedness completely helpless from the latest quakes and tsunamis.
