I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the earthquaketsunaminuclear reactor disaster in Japan. Some of you may have even heard about the volcanoes that have been erupting there too.  My friend who teaches English in Iwaki ended up going home last week, understandably so.

Korea hasn’t been effected by any of these, at least not yet (we’ll see what happens with the radiation). But it’s good to be prepared in case something does happen. I’ve heard foreigners here say they’re not registered with their embassy because they don’t know how to do it. But, aside from the newsletters they’ll send you, the embassies can also make sure you’re evacuated promptly if there is a problem (like nuclear fallout or fighting with North Korea). So I’ve posted the links to various embassy websites for registering purposes:

Americans (you’ll need your Passport number and address in Korea)
