Apparently all the island's power is out and there's no trains or buses. Sounds rough!

Apparently the supermarkets gave away their ice cream cause it wouldn't keep.

Certain areas are slowly getting power back but the whole island is at a standstill. Fortunately the major cities don't seem to be hit too awful bad.

Also fortunate that it wasn't big enough to cause a tsunami.

The epicenter was inland, tsunamis only form from earthquakes under the sea
