Stunned and shocked by the news of the devastation from the quakes and tsunami in Japan today. I'm putting up this link with information on how to help. Here's a post from a garden blogger in Japan.
One block away from my garden, the local beach was under a tsunami warning. No authorities anywhere except for the helicopters so I walked over to the park next to the beach. However, when we experience a quake here in southern California, not just a tsunami warning, I will be hightailing it from my garden as quick as I can.
The police in the helicopter kept flying up and down the beach announcing "Tsunami warning still in effect".
Needless to say, I saw that there were people still out on the beach though you can't see them in this photo.
A small crowd gathered to look in the park right off the beach. If we did have a real tsunami, we would be goners.
Yes, even the dogs were looking.
