Tsunami Scare

Early this morning the CNMI issued a tsunami warning for Hawaii, Guam, and the Northern Marina Islands for 1:30 am. I didn't find out about it until my neighbor was banging on my door to leave. My heart was racing. Apparently there was a earthquake in Japan that was 8.1. Everyone was leaving the compound to evacuate to higher ground. So i'm like freaking out. Just jumped into some jeans and a t shirt. I just grabbed my wallet and took off to higher ground. When I pulled into the main road there was major traffic. The whole island was out at one in the morning in a panic frenzy. There was traffic going up the hills and people walking all over the place. I felt like I was in that movie War of the Worlds. It really was crazy like that. Anyways, it just turned out to be a scare . . . but that was the first time I felt alone. Maybe the first time I felt like going home. Anyways, all is well and I am back at work.

Beverly,
I hope you didn't freak out too much. I heard about the tsunami scare and realized that it wasn't what everyone thought it was. So, I didn't call. But, I realize now that I should've checked in on you. I know it's scary but you're not alone. You've got good neighbors and friends and God with you. I'm relieved though, that the you're fine and it was just a scare.
Miss you!
Angie
