Horrifying indeed,beyond gutwrenching.
Many aftershocks,some of which will be very forcefull,are expected within a short timespan as laps of the plate still
have to "catch up" with the part that moved Japan 4 meters to the east last friday.Still the overal damage is said
to be less then that of the 1995 Kobe quake.Be that true or not,and be it that the region will find itself in a economic
book area in a short while as everything will have to be build up again,loss of lives of both people and animals can never be
substituted and can only be counted for in terms of the saddest loss and berievement.
Power supplies are down in all of Japan to save energy.That also goes for the Emperor and his family
who always wishes to share everything with his people,be it good or bad as said a message by the
Imperial Household Agency released the past weekend.TM wish to visit the area as soon as possible
but don't want to be in the way of rescue missions at the moment.Sometimes miracles happen and
people are re-united with their loved ones,a total of 15000 people have been rescued/retrieved thus
far from the Myagi area.http://www.anp-photo.com/search.pp?specialid=4398&flush=1
Radiation has gone far beyond the acceptable as over 500 miliciferts of radiation an hour were measured.
An ordinary human being is only allowed to be under 1 milicifert a year,workers in the nucleair industry
can get up to 50 mc.But now there's this huge alarming amount of radiation.
Contradictong reports also.Japan's PM Mr.Kan has ehavily criticised the managemant of the nucleair plant
for not contacting him as they should.
There are still about 50 people working at the Fukujima plant trying to do what can be done to prevent a immense disaster,
but there are also reports that they are leaving the plant now too,anyway,I think they deserve our utmost respect.
An area of up to 80 to 100 km will have to be evacuated if this is to continue before levels are back to acceptable.
Even Tokyo measures higher levels of radiation and its inhabitants are increasingly worried,some already leaving the city.
Foreign press,tourists,businessmen-women,anyone without any strict business is trying to leave Japan asap by air
resulting in long kews at airports.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-12740843
The nucleair crisis in Japan has prompted Germany to shut down 7 nucleair plants.Good.
The Dutch Foreign Office has issued a warning not to travel to Tokyo any longer.
