Thank you for posting you first hand experiences and the reminder to not exaggerate or even forward items that come to us without verifying it! The comment about the lack of water to homes was reported in the news today and I can't say which town they were refering to, and this just goes to prove that the media is resposible for the spread of false information possibly due to the rush to get the "story on the air".

On the positive note, I was told by a postal clerk that there is a call out in the Portland area for 1000 quilts to Japan. I wish I knew more, but maybe other posters from the Portland area can help with more information. QFK's is currently working on arrangements to have they're quilts hand delivered to children in Japan. Just think of how many we could send over there if even half of use made one! :thumbup:
