Japan Faces Another Tragic Calamity

Another disaster hit Japan, the Typhoon Talas. Rescuers already recorded 26 deaths and 56 still missing. Adding more misery to Japan that is still recovering from a catastrophic tsunami six months ago.

Thousands of passengers were still stranded because many bridges, railways and roads were destroyed. The official said that it is hard to count those destroyed bridges, railways, and roads. Typhoon Talas brought great destruction to Kii Peninsula, in Central Japan. That was hundreds of mile away from the Northeastern Coast of Japan where the tsunami’s destruction was experienced.

Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said that he would help those thousands of victims of Typhoon on the best way that he can do.

As of today, 460,000 people are still on evacuation centers and 3,600 people are still stranded by flooded rivers, landslides and collapsed bridges that makes it difficult for the rescuers to enter some isolated areas.

The great destruction of the typhoon challenges the toughness of Japan in terms of responding to the forces of nature while they were still recovering from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
