Panic in Tokyo has come down to mild level, as Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is becoming stabilized slowly. People are still upset deep down though, but at least we all share the sense of safety and security to make nation's capital strong.
In the north, low supply forces people to go back to shelters again.
Now 340K refugees and expecting additional 200K evacuating from contaminated 30km radius from Fukushima nuclear power plant. It's making survival a challenge and not all of them could affor to face the challenge.
I have talked with a group of young doctors in the north who have witnessed patients dying every hour due to low on water, medicine, electricity, and the worst of all, no fuel priority given to them to run emergency vehicle. Troops are prioritizing saving lives from washed out towns and villages, and they had to make decision to de-prioritize weak people.
Now special fuel trains and medicine comboy have reached there. So let's hope we don't sacrifice weak ones.
Why such hard measure? Please learn from what happened to the town of Minami Sanriku, one of the worst disaster spots, completely destroyed by tsunami. Population of 17K was turned into 10K refugees, 2K dead, and 5K still missing. Nowhere near recovery which is the hard reality.
