Dear followers of ConcordNanae.org,
I wanted to call your attention to the live video feed on our website. This feed uses a cellphone application called Qik, which allows me to upload a video in real time from anywhere in Japan. The Qik video player here on the homepage will display the latest live video from this stream, but you can see more clips on our YouTube Channel or at http://qik.com/benmirin.
More up-to-date news is also available through our Twitter feeds. Follow me, @benmirin, or the website, @Concordnanae.
I’m publishing this information now because Japan is currently struggling in the immediate aftermath of an earthquake that struck less than an hour ago. Nanae only experienced a magnitude 4 earthquake, but northeastern Honshu suffered one that registered 7.9 on the Richter scale. Tsunamis are currently overtaking dozens of towns in and around the city of Sendai, but more news is always on the way. I will be using my Qik channel to post more updates.
Here is my first live video about the earthquake:
Stay tuned for more updates through the various channels on ConcordNanae.org.
