Cleaning Up After The Japanese Tsunami

image credit

Eight months later, much of the debris has been cleared away or at least organized into big piles. In the port city of Kesennuma, many of the boats carried inland by the tsunami have been removed. Most evacuees have moved out of high school gyms and into temporary shelters or apartments.

The Kyodo News agency distributed an amazing group of combination photographs showing three scenes. The first scene is right after the earthquake and tsunami hit, then three months later and finally, how the scene looked 2 months ago.

That's pretty impressive. Maybe once they're finished they can come give us a hand with New Orleans....

Quite amazing how much work has had to be done. And also amazing that most of the rest of the world seems to have forgotten about it already.

It would be interesting to see what those areas looked like before the tsunami.
