I am watching Asia 7 Days on NHK right now on PBS World. On the program today, it is documenting how terrible the devastation is in two cities in the tsunami-stricken areas. Despite the terrible conditions, people in those areas are cleaning up and working together. There are also many people making an effort to make the lives of people who lost their homes and loved ones as comfortable as possible. However, there are fears about the future in some fishing areas, because the ground in one area actually sunk by 71 cm. This means that rising sea levels could result in wide areas being inundated by water again by the natural motion of water. If you would like to help out, please consider donating to the Japanese Red Cross here.
