An 8.9 magnitude earthquake has hit Japan this morning, the most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in 100 years. Hawaii and most of the United States’ west coast are both on tsunami warning. We hope for the best for the people in Japan and other countries affected or indirectly affected by this massive earthquake.
