Too awful for words - seen houses, cars - floating away due to the tsunami -  :o :(

Over load on Mother Nature?? And my son pipes up and says.....remember that movie '2012'? I wanted clip him over the earhole - but secretly I too started wondering...... :heeha: very scary and worrying indeed.

Yip, so bad, even slight tsunami warnings for OZ, coastal area's and NZ - but, VERY slight chance though ??? As stunning as Hawaii is - do NOT want to be there at times like these - as they have a very high risk.... :(

OMW! Just saw on the telly now that a man has been rescued - floating on his roof of his house some 15km out to see...... :o wow, what are the chances.  Death toll now at 1000? Expecting to rise to 10 000...... :( Sureal trying to understand this - these poor people start their week off in complete mayhem, and now the nuclear meltdown problem and the fact that it is freezing cold..... :'( How quickly life can change hey?
