First time since WWII Japan has recorded this many victims

I found a better stream of the NHK site - http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/r/movie/

You can get 512 Kbps from there - a nice size picture if you have the bandwidth to handle it.

The dead and missing now exceed 11,000 - someone state-side was musing that this could end up in the 30,000 range...

Possible? I hope not. That's staggering.

Kobe took 6000, the Twin Towers took 3000 - will Fukushima end up taking 30,000?

And will this be the Tohoku Earthquake dead, the "Big Tsunami" 大津波 dead, or the Fukushima dead?

And do any of the above questions matter that much?

It's time to protect lives. Get away from there - get 10 times further away than the government advises.
