We need to relax little

This shows people's anxiety... I guess. Drugstores do not have toilet rolls, tissue paper....Supermarket do not have foods.... breads... rice.... just in case, I checked with rice shop... they are selling only rice.... they didn't have rice !

Don't panic, the most important thing is to help sending goods to those quake hit area.... gasoline also.

I saw people buying many instant noodles.... what are you gonna do with all those !?

Just buy what you need for a few days, not for months ! please.

Now that you mention this... what about the international help? food and everything else are reaching there?.

Well, the thing is there should be enough for us...in Tokyo or areas that quake didn't hit.

It's just too much precaution and psychology.

For instance, in my emergency kit, I just have two cans of sea biscuits and a can of tuna, a few others.

People are buying tons of foods and papers....

Because the roads to the areas are cut off and therefore distribution to the people who are in real needs have not reached them yet. Rescue teams are working on fixing the problem, but if we buy too much gasoline here, those trucks will not get gasoline to reach the area.

For us, things will come anyways even if it took time...we still have heaters, foods, waters, roads...

You're really admirable human beings, giving the rest of all of us a great lesson on how to cope with all of this.

Thank you so much for that :)

I guess we can't blame people for being scared. I live in Victoria, British Columbia and there was an article in our online newspaper how emergency kits and water are selling like crazy here. It has sure opened our eyes up.
So is there still a lot of evidence of the quake where you are? Damaged buildings and so on? Has daily life pretty much returned to normal or no? There is so much focus on the tsunami damage that I haven't heard much about the other areas.

This is the least I can do...

Carol,

No, no damage in my area at all. You wouldn't think there was huge earthquake. It was huge for me, but compared to Tohoku region, nothing.

logistics and electric power shortage is affecting our daily life.
