I emailed our polychaete colleague Dr. Waka Sato-Okoshi at Tohoku University, Sendi, Japan yesterday. My email bounced back due to the email server there not responding. An internet link to the university indicates that it is closed until April sometime and all classes and other activities have been cancelled until then. Has anyone heard from Waka or any other of our colleagues in Japan?
Waka attends all the polychaete conferences and I always enjoy seeing her and catching up. Since she lives in Sendi, I am especially concerned about the safety of Waka and her family. If anyone has any information, please send it to me at llovell from lacsd.org.
