Tsunami Warning: 03/28/05

from Washington Post:

An 8.2 magnitude earthquake struck late Monday off Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the Andaman Sea, the U.S. Geological Survey said.


The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a warning that the quake could generate a "widely destructive tsunami" and urged authorities to take immediate action, including evaculation of coastal areas.

Prayer (from Carmina Gadelica)

Relieve Thou, O God, each one
In suffering on land or sea,
In grief or wounded or weeping,
And lead them to the house of Thy peace
This night.

I am weary, weak and cold,
I am weary of travelling land and sea,
I am weary of traversing moorland and billow,
Grant me peace in the nearness of Thy repose
This night.

Beloved Father of my God,
Accept the caring for my tears;
I would wish reconcilement with Thee,
Through the witness and the ransom
Of Thy Son;

To be resting with Jesus
In the dwelling of peace,
In the paradise of gentleness,
In the fairy-bower
Of mercy.
