Hello Lotters, Though the Earth Quake was devastating, It's a miracle (or miscalculation) that there was No casualties with regards to our Filipino immigrants nor Filipino but Japanese Citizens living in there. though, there are people who had been cut off from communication, we are hoping that such news continue to be true. sometimes, rescue and salvage operations tends to change that status. We have people in Japan and a lot of Filipinos has tell their tale their how hard actually happened. and It so happened that Japanese people were supposed to be calm at this things. actually, the elders were more calm, I saw a video of this 8.9 happening in a reception and an OLD MAN concentrately filling a form as the earthquakes happens( WTH?) Godbless to All Filipino out there. we should pray for our foreigner brothers and sister, specifically the japanese. Have a nice day.

So far so good, as they say it but DFA is expecting the worst from this calamity since they saw the magnitude of the disaster and they saw that it is quite a miracle if no Filipinos will get involved in those things. I am just praying they are wrong and our citizens are safe and sound there.

nationality doesnt matter to me, there is only 1 race and its human race, we were all humans as human being its hard to see innocent people suffer, whether they from out country or not. I saw footages of the Tsunami and is the worse than the one that happened in thailand and Indonesia. When I saw those brown dirty water devouring a whole village, its very nightmarish.

Hello Captain, That is very true that things i really think it's not really safe that we should get our chance to be more safe.. you know what's really ironic there, is that there was a ten meter WALL that was created back in the 1930's and some how the freaking wave was more like 14 meters high

as of reports, there aren't Filipinos reported yet.. but there was a menntioned place where most are filipinos and none from that workplace has contacted anyone yet, their families, etc. Its really sad that this is happening.. im not sure what the purpose, is this just some nature thing.. is this caused by human's abusse of the nnature.... or maybe this is the way the world retaliates... i sure hope these does not continue anymore.. it saddens me that whether who is affected, Filipinos or not, Chinese or not... Japanese or not... no one deserves to be in such a bad situation...

Hello Chiyosan, I have seen in one of the tabliods that thousands of pinoy are missing in some areas of sendai but i havent' read it in full details. and i was told that some of my moms relatives are actually having a stay in the evacuation centers. well, it's better than them staying in the streets.

hi Letran I am so glad that you have not had any Filipino casualties as of now. My prayers have been going out to the citizens of Japan who have been hit by this earthquake and tsunami. That had to be the most frightening thing anyone has seen. I have seen some pictures of it on the tv news down stairs. Huge buildings swept away by humongous waves and a large ship smashed. really really scary.

Hello Hatley, I don't knowsomehow some news in the Papers, are a bit conflicting. I mean, some said thousands are missing and the other from the foreign affairs that FIlipinos were spared?this is such a huge thing that happened to them. too bad really.

Hope many Filipinos are survived and not injured. I think they should inform this to the government in the hilippines to provide assistance in case of major trouble. Continue to pray always for the sake, not only for the Japan but also for the whole world. Its like in the poem... http://bit.ly/articlemar82011

Hello Miketags, I am not sure if they even have time for that knowing that DAMAGE was so severe.. what happened sure proves the power of nature can't be avoided unless we have technology that helps us avoid it. if the damage was that hard what more for people living in less technologically advance place

Hi Letran! So sad to hear the news about the casualties,filipinos or not,they are still humans. I heard there are still missing and we still can't assure if one of the missing is a filipino. We just really have to pray for the people who are in Japan. Prayers are our only weapon,the best of all!

Hello MtrGuanlao, It's just hard things we this way. but it's a good thing Japan is a develop country, because if not, then they would have been completely lost a lot of people..you think there's another reason why they experienced this? it's hard to tell why japan experience this thing.

well if thats true then that is indeed a great news. i just got home 2 weeks ago from ibaraki. my wife was so shock for she was the one who saw the news first. i was taking a nap with my son. one of the cities that was reported damaged is ibaraki and still in red alert of tsunami warnings. my wife prayed and prayed and did not stop on lighting candles. she has a lot of friends at japan too, and nieces as well. she was mostly online last night waiting for news. let us keep on praying for everybodys safety not just for the filipino but everyone there at japan.

Hello Seven, You've been Blessed that you got home just before this thing happened. I can imagine you're wife worrying much more if you were there when this disaster happened. am sure that you will have trouble contacting her in the philippines if you remained in Japan.

Oh gosh travesty, devastating and my prayers are holding very strong for all survivors. Sometimes we do not know how good we have it in life until we see the devastating effects of others.

Hello hardworkinggurl, Well, so far they are being organized. people are lining up in some water tanks for water and buying groceries in some limited stores, which are out of goods now. despite what we are state now, we are glad and blessed in this scenario.
