It's snowing in the afflicted area
A 75-year-old woman and a man in his twenties were rescued on the 15th. Meanwhile, more than 1000 people were found dead. Many people are still searching for their families. More than 11,000 are still missing.
It's snowing in the afflicted area.
The shelters in the areas accommodate 400 thousand people. Many shelters are isolated and scattered over a large area. So relief supplies don't go around to them. It is difficult to ensure gasoline, heating oil and transportation routes.
The earthquake with a seismic intensity of a upper 6 occurred in Shizuoka Prefecture around 10:30 p.m. on March 15th. Some people were slightly injured. No building collapsed.
We are getting used to temporary or full suspension of train service due to scheduled blackout.
Some poeple take a different route to work, some give up going to work and some get off work in the afternoon.
