Japan Still In Trouble

Japan is still feeling the effects of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake that hit them last week.  They are racing to fix coolant systems in their Nuclear Power Plants and the death toll continues to rise.

As the days go on more and more develops on the latest disaster to strike the world.  The 8.9 magnitude quake and the tsunami that followed has caused so much damage to Northern Japan.  They continue to search through endless rubble and the death toll is now estimated at 10,000 and thousands of others are still missing.  The search for people is almost over whelming said one Japanese Government official.

Japanese police officials said that as the water receded nearly 1,000 dead bodies were discovered across the coast line.  Everything is in short supply right now including food and water.  making things even worse is that thousands are being evacuated as fear of a nuclear meltdown looms.

For the second time in 3 days the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant has experienced a hydrogen explosion.  The effects of that blast were felt 25 miles away.  Japan is downplaying the severity of this issue, but it is pretty serious.  The USS Ronald Reagan was stationed just 100 miles off the coast near the power plant and they could feel the radiation.  Now experts say that they could be in danger of a third explosion, which could be devastating.

Also here is some more raw footage from the tsunami just sweeping through the streets of Sendai, Japan.  More and more of this seems to be surfacing as people get to safety.
