brother and his wife live.
Immediately I turned to Facebook to see if he had made contact and he had, but this was before the tsunami had hit and I spent much of the morning listening to CNN and going back and forth to Facebook to see if he could or would make more contact.
Just about 15 minutes ago he made contact saying there were still lots of tremors but that he lives high on a mountain and is not in any danger from the water.
I am writing this more as a journal entry than as a blog post. The phone keeps ringing and now a news station wants to come out to the house. That's it for now.
