The cast of the upcoming installment of the "Twilight" trilogy (er, tetralogy?) saga was forced off Vancouver Island early this morning due to the tsunami warning triggered by Friday's magnitude 8.9 earthquake in Japan.But the evacuation of cast members, which included Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner did not go down without drama. According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Tinsel Korey, 30, who plays Makah Emily Young, tweeted dramatically: "They're evacuating us 4 a tsumnani warning. If this … is my last my tweet. I love you. The end. Hugz. "If this is the moment. Then I've lived a good life," she later added. "And I'm thankful 4 everything I've been given."

Both tweets have since been deleted and Korey recently assured us: "Everything is fine. And we ending up getting all of our work done after all :)"
