Video: Massive 8.9 Earthquake Hits Japan

Takanori Gomi tweets: We are Okey,safe. Thank you everyone.

CRUSHER_MMA tweets: Thank you worry. Is it safe for me and my family and friends. However, this earthquake is stronger than Melendez.

DanHerbertson tweets: Street cracked open by quake. Tokyo tower is bent. That blows my mind. 200 bodies found on a beach in Miyagi. Now being called the 7th biggest quake ever recorded.

Roxanne Modafferi on facebook: Then the place freaking starts ROCKING. People start BOOKING it for the door. Come on, grandma, ditch the cart! Like 5 grandmas were like blocking the doors with their carts... We make it outside and even standing on the pavement, we can feel it. I look up and see antenae waving back and forth wildly, and I SEE THE FREAKING 7 STORY BUILDING SWAYING compared to the one next to it!! It was so scary! The building was moving! People were pouring out of all the nearby buildings. Eventually, I went to my office and saw my co-workers with students standing outside. Turns out that we cancelled classes for the rest of the day. Well, only two kids showed up and we sent them home. There were aftershocks, and it was really scary.

Jewels canceled their 12th Ring event that was scheduled for tonight. All fighters (Megumi Fujii, Hitomi Akano, Mei Yamaguchi, Shizuka Sugiyama, Hiroko Kitamura, Saori Ishioka, Roxanne Modafferi, Jessica Aguilar) and Japan-based MMA media are safe.
