    Japan Earthquake

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     andyfox was at Narita getting ready to leave for Palau when the earthquake hit. 'I was 10 minutes away from boarding a flight out of Narita airport when the quake struck,' andyfox said. 'We evacuated then returned to [a] holding area. We couldn't return back into Japan because we already cleared customs for embarkation. Hats off to Delta for supplying blankets, food and water and Japanese construction for keeping the roof from coming down.'
