A terrible visual of bodies washing up along Japan’s coastline today, was just a reminder of the incredible tragedy that has struck the country. Crematoriums have been overwhelmed and the supplies of body bags have been exhausted. There is economic and nuclear crisis and an uncertainty about the future of the people.
Millions of people were faced with a fourth night without any water or food and are suffering through near freezing temperatures along the northeast coast. The possibility of a nuclear meltdown is raising fears in Japan and all around the world.
The stock market plummeted due to the likelihood of losses by Toyota and Honda.
The coastline that took the biggest hit from the tsunami had over 1000 bodies scattered, according to the Japanese police, while Kyodo, a news agency claims that it was over 2000. Due to the vast amount of deceased, the Japanese government waived a rule requiring permission from local authorities before cremation or burial to speed up the funeral process.
The coast has been hit by hundreds of aftershocks since Friday and the latest one was an astounding and frightening 6.2 magnitude quake that was followed by the threat of yet another tsunami.
RSR sends our best wishes and encourages those to help in any way that they can. This is truly a tragedy…
