As I am sure most people know, an 8.9 earthquake struck Japan on Friday, the fifth largest in recorded history. It was so monumental that the main body of Japan, Honshu, shifted 2.4 meters to the east (7 feet, 10 inches). While so far the folks over at Nintendo and Pokemon are A-okay, many Japanese are not; parts of the country have been flooded by a resulting tsunami, large aftershocks are still occurring, and many people are missing or dead.
If you can donate to the Japan relief effort, you can do so through the Red Cross or various other organizations. We at PokeBeach express our deepest sympathies and prayers for Japan and all of our hearts go out to them. In times like this everyone should help out in any little or big way they can.
