Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and other stars are using to Twitter to offer their support for the victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami, which hit Japan on Friday.

"Japan is one of my favorite places on earth...it's an incredible culture with amazing people," Justin tweeted. "My prayers go out to them. We all need to help."

The 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck about 90 miles off the coast of Japan, resulting in a tsunami that engulfed towns with up to 30 feet of water. In addition to destructive fires, more than 30 aftershocks followed, the strongest of which measured at 7.1. It was the nation's largest quake in recorded history.
According to CNN, the water reached as far as six miles inland on the east coast of the island, and so far hundreds of people are dead, with hundreds more reported missing. Tens of thousands of Japanese citizens have been displaced from their homes, and the death toll is rising.

As a precaution, the U.S. National Weather Service issued tsunami warnings for at least 50 countries and territories, affecting stars like Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, who were evacuated from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where they are filming 'Breaking Dawn.'

According to ABC, tsunami waves have reportedly hit the shores of Hawaii and damaged parts of California. As the effects of the natural disaster unfold, stars are expressing their condolences over Twitter.

"I'm sending my thoughts and prayers and love to those in Japan who are hurting," Taylor tweeted.

"Wow, I don't even know what to say, Japan," Selena wrote. "I was just there and you were all so wonderful to me. I am sending all my love, prayers and support."
