few good news
I have received good news.
Although I didn't write about one of my cousins, his wife and son on my blog, they live in Tagajo City that is located about 3km from the Sanriku Coast.
His father could communicate with him, but we couldn't confirm his family's safety. We heard that the city was one of the tsunami-hit regions.
Today his father said on the phone that the safety of his wife and son was confirmed.
Compared to the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, it took us a long time to confirm afflicted people's safety. The stench of muddy water and piles of rubble are preventing rescuers from finding and rescuing the victims.
The transportation was disrupted this morning, but nobody complained about it. Everyone says, "Considering the current situation of the victims, I can't complain."
The problematic nuclear power plants are in serious condition.
