1. The signs are that the emergency services are working well.
We need to be as calm as possible till we know the extent of the damage.

8. I might just do that.
If I'm at work and I still haven't heard from him, I will literally just start crying.

4. Organized Confusion
That was one term I've heard used this morning.

This is a newsgathering nightmare. Cellphone networks are down. Reports are the internet is also bogged down as well. Traffic is deadlocked and many areas are totally closed off. It's going to take a couple hours to get a clear picture what's happening.

Whatever has happened, it's of a major proportion. The pictures here show of a city prepared for the worst...and what appears to be a very quick, professional responses.
