President Smith's comments:
As Karen mentioned, we just experienced a 6.9 earthquake off the coast of Fukushima (the site of the nuclear disaster with the earthquake of 2011). This is the biggest earthquake we have felt in the last 2 years. All missionaries have been contacted and confirmed safe. They have been instructed to remain away from the coast and low-lying areas as a tsunami warning is in effect. Many concerned parents of course want to know of their child's safety. All are safe and well.
