    They`ve handled this with dignity and strength. I greatly respect the Japanese and wish them all the best as they try to put their lives back together.

    38% of Americans believe that this disaster was sent from God. (Google it)

    I hate you 38% America.

    I remember saying something along the lines of "Japan is highly developed, they will get through this without much trouble" after the earthquake... I was wrong :-(

    Interesting that the major pictures are of `rural` areas being hit. Much of japan is highly dense urban. I sense there is some unmentioned engineering at work that saved the day there.

    I was talking to my Japanese real estate agent. I said ‘is there a school in this area.’ She said ‘not now, but just wait.’

    the picture of the road STILL bothers me. now it looks like someone went and photoshopped the signs so they match, but if you were to walk those 100ft forward so the landscape to the right lined up, the signs would no longer line up...

    then again, I wouldn`t be surprised to find out it was photoshopped as lots of photographers like to do that to add emphasis to a situation.

    @LazyMe484

    it is two disasters in a row, followed by a potentially catastrophic third. Though I agree there is a lot of trouble, especially with the more rural areas, if it had been in most other places, it would`ve been much worse :(

    I hope everyone is safe, I know a great deal of friends are but...

    Hmmm in photo #10 we had earlier on IAB. I did the research on that. It was damage from the 1995 Kobe earthquake. All you have to do is google "road damage 1995 earthquake japan" and on page #9 it comes up on images. Lots of wire photos are used without checking by news services. I don`t care how efficient you are no way in 6 days to move that much earth and repair that road. Not enough resources could be brought in play in such timely manner.

    @handys003: If you google that, you do get that, but when you click on it you`re taken to places that are posting it for THIS earthquake, not the 1995 one. If you google what you did, you don`t just get photos of the 1995 earthquake.

    It`s amazing to me that Japan, only two weeks after a massive geological event are pulling themselves together, cooperating with each other, fixing their towns and moving on yet here in America, we still have people whining about Katrina waiting for their handout six years later. Sad....

    My favorite is #9. The Japanese are so efficient that it is no wonder that they are doing so well for relief efforts as compared to New Orleans and Haiti. Zero looting and getting stuff done.

    Picture #10 - they really did fix the road in six days! Of course they need roads open to help people, but the IAB picture before wasn`t as clear as this one.

    It`s terrible and sad that there`s been so much loss.

    ` Not enough resources could be brought in play in such timely manner.`

    I thought the same thing, seeing how alot of road crews I know take 3 months to do a ONE KILOMETRE STRETCH OF ROAD. But seeing how most of the japanese probably ARENT beerchuggin rednecks while paving, it`s 100% more believable.

    I hate you 38% America."

    I believe God gave America handguns, hamburgers and television. Takes longer, more suffer.

    This is not demon city shinjuku. This is real life people with real disasters. Everyone associates Japan with some demonic issues.

    # 16 struck a cord with me, in that photo those young people looked so carefree, and if they still live their lives will never be the same. Blessings to you all in Japan.
