Japan Earthquake

no cars on Tohoku Highway
I know I have to report the severe disaster of Japan but I can't move towards damaged areas.

The death toll from the 9.0-magnitude earthquake has reached 2,500 and is expected to rise. More than 15,000 people are missing, more than 450,000 people lost their houses.

Many cities and towns are absolutely destroyed by tsunami. The highways are closed and trains don't run any more in Tohoku area.

Nuclear power stations were broken by the quake and tusnami, then the the electricity is cut off around Tokyo for three hours every day. Many schools and offices around Tokyo have been closed since the day.

This earthquake has exerted an immeasurable influence on the life of Japanese people. Please pray for Japan !
????? I know and Japan's Nuclear Industrial Safety Agency says a third explosion was heard early Tuesday morning at Fukushima Daiichi. The blast came from the building housing the No 2 reactor of the crippled nuclear plant, a breach of the containment vessel is feared.

I've been watching the Japanese NHK World on satellite tv.

NO, Yokai better not to go in those areas as radiation levels are 10 times and 400 times higher...
It's tragic... there are people with no food, no water and no medicine... after the powerful earthquake, the tsunami was so devastating...

My heart and thought are there...
My humble thought is HERE...

????? Yokai, my heart and thought are there with the Japanese... just a humble thought HERE...

Then a dear friend of mine's touching tribute HERE...

And another beautiful thought HERE...

We all think of you in such unbelievable tragedy...

Aguguru Every day I'm looking for information, that will tell, that something is going better in Japan, but still it's like it is. Also shocked about this injustice, when (in my opinion) so advanced and peaceful people like Japanese have to suffer. Have hope and in Latvia too we are praying, that this situation will be better!
Aguguru · 2011-03-19: 06:33

????? We pray for Japan in such huge triple tragedy...

Hope Japan and the rest of the world be aware finally and close nuclear plants everywhere...
We cannot accept nuclear risks in any way (plants, waste, weapons).

Hope the very dramatic situation of the nuclear reactors spreading radiation all over can be solved asap with a sarcophagus containment structure over all the 6 reactors at Fukushima...

After an earthquake and tsunami there can be a reconstruction and life again... but after nuclear radiation is not possible... it's for "eternity" (plutonium takes more than 24,000 years to fade away...)

Our hearts are there...
