Earlier estimates revised

Looks like it was about 30 minutes from earthquake to tsunami impact around Sendai. Up from my earlier 15 minute estimate. They say the dead will largely be elderly people who didn't have the speed or strength to escape in time. It's really sad.

You're starting to see some stories of families being reunited or people being found in extraordinary circumstances (like the guy who was washed out to sea and found two days later - luckiest dude in the whole city).

That stuff does little to balance against the horror, but its better than nothing.
