The station is about 20 minutes walk from my house.
Sendai Air port:
My husband had luckily flied back from Nagoya in the morning of the day.
Near Sendai Port:
Gas tanks exploded.
As you see buildings didn't get s serious damage around here, fifteen minutes walk from my house. People is making 1 kim long line to buy foods. Donna & Jonathan, Carlton & Katie, you may guess the situation. The line started from Mitsukoshi towards Daiei, which was opned for two hours then.
This photo is not of Sendai but Nobiru, coast town, where my husband's uncle and his family live. What a relieve for us we've heard they are all alive, though their houses were completely destroyed by tsunami.
