We awakened to the spring-forward paradigm, and overwhelming bad news out of Japan. The Guru got the NHK World feed from Japan, streaming video with simultaneous interpretation, and I heard news about the nuclear energy facility, then facilities, that still has me gasping (internally). This is not good.
This afternoon, I heard that over 300K people are in shelters. And, it still gets cold at night there…. And more than 620K evacuees, including those from around the nuclear power plants.
The NYTimes has one of the better visuals (slide the center line left and right) showing how devastating the tsunami wave was in the aerial/satellite view. Waves, actually.
