Thank you for your messages.

Satoshi was caught in the krazy lines at the train stations, he said he started to get motion sickness on the last leg of his commute so he ended up walking a couple of stations to get home.

The news footage was scary...Kansai Airport (KIX) under water, roof tiles flying off of houses, even Kyoto Station had glass falling from their roof onto people below...

The winds were apparently 58 meters/second (129 mph)...yikes!

MIL said she wasn't affected but BIL apparently lost power and gas.

Tuesday night the wind was howling (very sleepless!) early Wednesday morning there was a small but long shaking (earthquake)...the world is falling apart...

We are thankful for your messages and grateful that we weren't affected.

Please keep Kansai in your prayers, they have a ways to go to get back to normal.

So very happy that nothing major affected you and your family! Aside from your earthquake, now there's that big one in Hokkaido!
Here's hoping that KIX gets up and running by the 25th, as selfish as that sounds.

Just watched footage on NHK about Hokkaido. Looks like a few areas were badly damaged.

Thanks LJ!

Not sure how long it will take KIX to get up and running, V, they are talking about using Terminal 2 (the one for PEACH) but the check-in machines are apparently different from the major airlines' machines.

Take care you two!

it is really sad Jalna, many missing from landslides.

Take care.

I'm glad you guys are safe - hope your BIL gets power back soon!

Thank you Kirk:)

Take care you two.
