Very sad news today from Japan regarding the earthquake and consequent tsunami. The ultimate tragedy is, of course, the loss of life and serious injuries that have no doubt occurred but I've added this post to the Nikon section as the Mainichi Daily News reports
that a 10-meter tsunami was observed at Sendai port in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture. Nikon have a facility at Sendai (source
) but I'm unaware of whether it was directly affected. Hopefully not but this article
from the Aviation Herald shows how the airport, by the coast, was affected. Best wishes to everyone in the region and, purely in the context of this forum section, the Nikon employees in Sendai.
