indeed--e-mail (including mobile phone e-mail) and internet are working fine

fukushima is sealed off, so contacting anyone there will be considerably 
more complicated

BBC World News online had posted a UK phone number for finding people in 
Japan: check their website.  Judging from past history, foreign civilians 
trying to come here to "help" will be turned back at the airport.
Domestic phone service is still largely out, altho a call came thru from 
London on my landline here in Kansai, which is undamaged.  Shocks of up to 5 
continue at the moment in the NE, but evacuation & relief work is highly 
organized, and some transpo is running.  It may take a few days to contact 
your friends from abroad.  I still cannot reach Tokyo on either cell or 
landline, but e-mail seems OK.

A friend posted a notice on on Facebook about Google Finder, localized for 
this earthquake. .It seems to be accessible in Japanese at 
http://japan.person-finder.appspot.com/?lang=ja. (And of course in English.)

I am also interested in volunteering to help there. My heart, love, and 
support reaches out for the people of Japan. Hope all is easy and normal in 
a short time!

Does anyone know of any volunteer groups that could go over there somehow 
and help out. I have friends in Sendai I have no way of reaching.
