Terrible Japan Disaster

Post by MarkGoodwinPianos » 14 Mar 2011, 08:09

More than 10,000 dead.
Unstable nuclear situation.
Whole towns reduced to mud piles.

Here is a rare piece of footage showing the human reaction to the arrival of the flood waters. Filmed from inside an airport. You can feel the horror as you listen to the people's reactions

Tough times for Japan.

I've emailed my supplier over there to check that their friends, family and staff are safe. Thankfully, they are unaffacted but said that they could not stand up when the quake hit.

Me and Julie went to Japan this time last year and were stunned at what a lovely country it is. It is the people, of course, who make it lovely. Very warm,generous, polite and considerate. Somehow that makes it all the worse, thinking about the suffering of such a positive and happy nation.

Get well soon, Japan!

I don't mind. Maybe give him benefit of the doubt but the pattern suggests spam to me :)

The nuclear situation isn't looking too great. The workers trying to control it have effectively committed suicide by trying to fix it

They are considering burying the plant under concrete to prevent contamination

Blimey, it's not looking good at all. Fancy putting a nuclear plan on a fault line and next to the coast!!!!!!!!!!!

Our April 18 in Ishinomaki City, Sumiyoshi Junior High School to see the interview, about 200 victims in the classroom for a month, the month can not wash a bath, only a picture of them through shops and bedding. We interviewed an old couple, the woman heard an interview, accused the government immediate access to the state. They need simple house with Ishinomaki city of 15,000 victims, simple house only 200, would want to live in the balloting. And according to government regulations, in order to be able to get signed, you have to meet the family broke up, no property, the elderly, or have a child. No one able to get around her, desperate, and schools opening soon, when the time to move out, the question is how do move out? Man chimed in, housing can be built, how to do the work? Man is an accounting, and very few companies in the city proper, and they do not know where is the future. Government grants to the victims of only 10 million yen, enough for half of a person living in Sendai.
Sincerely hope that Japan could quickly from the disaster victims in the shadow of the earthquake and rebuild their homes

You have all our sympathies and best wishes, Shining. It's a terrible thing to go through and makes us realise how fortunate we are.

a friend's son is currently working in Japan for almost 10 years now, in that duration he just made 3 to 5 visit home and was not really missing his folks that much since he got almost everything there.

a week ago, he surprised us that he came home to his dad, my friend. only to say that, he may never see his dad again and he said his goodbyes if ever something much worse happen to Japan.

he said, they are experiencing 25 - 50 earthquakes in different levels everyday. and its pretty scary, but people still prefer living there.
