A View from Japan on Present Crisis: Dr. Satoru Hashimoto

Here in Japan, still chaotic but I hope it will be settled down by many people's effort. Unfortunately even in Japan the route to Tohoku area is limited and many offers from abroad have been declined. But please tell them we are not arrogant, but the system is not working well now. It is beyond our system. Anyway internet is doing its best. There are so many threads and mailing lists, people were united with this new tool which we did not use when we had an earthquake 16 years ago in Kobe (death toll was about 6000). The problem is the earthquake this time is far beyond our power.
