The destruction looks more like the aftermath of the atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
There is a lot of land underwater that wasn't before.

They say we actually moved 8 feet closer to the US as a result of the earthquake.

Don't even know what to say..
May very well end up being the worst natural disaster ever..
I wonder if they will ever know how many people really perished?

The Nuclear aspect of damage and loss of life is yet to be seen..
It's like a whole nuther disaster in of itself..

Very, very sad indeed.. :(

The people living there will never be the same but I hope for all that they can rebuild and somehow recover.. :bigangel:

Dyno,

Here is a good link to information about the reactors, not as bad as being told by the news.

Thanks Siggy, I have a much better understanding now then I did before.. All that NUCLEAR chit is greek to me fer sher..

While I understand what that Guy is saying and appreciate his taking the time to post his experience for the layman to understand it's still tough to completely IGNORE the media.. They may be sharing info containing errors but are they just making this shit up?? This morning the News (on the Puter) is saying things are worse now then yesterday with WARNINGS being issued to the people?..
