‘The 3.11′ a first hand account of the recent earthquake in Japan

Over at “the Brasspounders Cafe” blog, Leo, JJ8KGZ, gives a first hand account of what his experiences were of the earthquake that struck Japan recently. I recommend you read his The 3.11 post.

Our thoughts are with the all the people in Japan as they work to recover and deal with the aftermath and challenges resulting from the earthquake and tsunami.  Donations are being sought for that region through the usual organizations, web searches will reveal your national charities or try organizations like the International Committee of the Red Cross or  Médecins Sans Frontières. Canadians can use the Canadian Red Cross or see the list at CBC’s website for donations.
