the 10th day after the quake
A 80-year-old woman and her 16-year-old grandson were rescued on the 20th. They were trapped under the debris.
Quake-stricken prefectures began to build temporary housing on the 19th. Other prefectures are offering to absorb the sufferers.
Many people are still searching for their families. Some people are leaving the afflicted areas to head for their relatives' houses.
A temporary bridge was built in place of tsunami-driven one.
Post-office clerks began to deliver mail in an afflicted area. They thread their way through the debris by motorcycle, but many receivers are staying in shelters or at their relatives' houses. In some cases, there is no house at the shipping address.
It seems that the present situation of the nuclear power plants is in a state of being in control.
