Yes, I have friends in Japan. Fortunately, their area, though rocked by the quake, was far enough inland to avoid the tsunami. They still had internet, so we were able to touch base via e-mail. They had minimal damage. I wish the same could be said for all areas of the country!
I also checked in on my friends in Taiwan. Fortunately, the tsunami had pretty much dissipated by the time it reached them. They had officials out keeping the beach areas clear, (most of the east coast is steep cliffs and uninhabited anyway) but it was more a surge up the beach than anything else by the time it came ashore. No damage, no injuries, even in low lying areas.
I know they've been evacuating some areas of Hawaii... Hopefully the energy will dissipate before reaching there too.
