Japan Earthquake & Tsunami

Celebrities are taking to Twitter to send prayers and express condolences to the people of Japan and the Pacific Coast following the 8.9 earthquake that hit the region Friday, March 11.

The quake, which struck the eastern coast of Japan Friday afternoon, is the strongest to hit the country in 300 years and one of the five strongest ever measured. It also triggered a 10-meter (30-foot) tsunami that has engulfed the region and put more than 20 countries under tsunami watches.

Celebrities like Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and Katy Perry sent messages to the region. Here’s what a few of them tweeted:

Keri Hilson: “My heart goes out to any & everyone affected by the tsunami & earthquake in Japan. Sincere prayers for safety & repair…”

Justin Bieber: “Japan is one of my favorite places on earth…it’s an incredible culture with amazing people. My prayers go out to them. We all need to help.”

The situation in Japan is still developping and support from other celebrities continues to come. TRACE Urban’s thoughts are with the people of Japan and the Pacific Coast.
