After Quake, 10,000 Missing in Japan

Following the massive earthquake in northern Japan, nearly 10,000 people are unaccounted for in the port town of Minamisanriku in Miyagi Prefecture.

The figure is more than half of the town's population of 17,000, Japan Broadcasting Corporation NHK announced on Saturday.

On Friday, an 8.9-magnitude earthquake, off the northeastern coast of Japan's main island, unleashed a 23-foot (7-meter) tsunami and was followed by more than 50 aftershocks for hours.'

  1. Very scary events unfolding across the globe.

    Just disaster after disater each and every week and month.

    On that day I was literally shaking because this is not a joke at all.

    People, especially these world Governments that are still too busy blowing shit up need to start making serious contingency plans right about now, because as we can see, it is just wave after wave of disaster, one after the other.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
