It's day 3 since big earth quake hit the entire Eastern region of Japan.
It hit the northern regions, trout land, the hardest.
Pacific states of Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima are hit hard and
90% of casualties are coming in that area while earthquake killed
people in other regions nearby Tokyo as well.
I was having meeting in conference room in the first floor then
saw my office building dancing twist and shout. Took me 4 hours to
get back home with my family after leading small band on foot, because
all transportation and communication stopped.
It took me another day to reunite with my mom who got stack on the
other side of heaviest traffic of all time and we successfully contacted my
relatives living in northern region. We are all OK and consider ourselves lucky.
Now I'm doing my part to help rescue & recovery at least a tiny bit.
By doing so, I ask your to do us a favor.
DO NOT follow CNN who is pissing everyone off by sitting on top of
things speculating and causing little panic within English speaking community
in Japan. Especially so covering nuclear power plant case with old information and food supply in Tokyo with absolutely no facts. If you know someone in the station, please let them know that they need sensible approach or they will loose their credibility in this.
Please follow credible sources who actually send their people in
