WaPo headline from 20 minutes ago:
Japan earthquake and tsunami death toll expected to exceed 10,000; survivors worry about dwindling supplies, food
That alone would make the worst natural disaster in terms of death to hit Japan since the Great Kanto quake back in 1923. That is twice the number that perished in the Kobe quake. And if you recall, many died then because help did not arrive.
There is snow on the ground. People are cold. The Japanese government is not repeating the mistakes from the Kobe quake. It has over 100,000 troops on the ground trying to help. But food and water is running out. They need all the help we can offer.
The Christian Science Monitor has an article up about how we can help.Link.
If you have no money, please take the time to contact your Congresscritter and tell them to help. Or call the White House.
To that effect, I need to do some coordinating with my old employer in Japan which will take a few hours. I will be back to post some more links as to how we can help.
