The truth is, no one knows yet how many people are missing. The official figures are:
- Over 11,000 killed
- Over 16,000 still missing, including an estimated 1000 bodies that cannot be recovered from the nuclear disaster zone
- About 3000 injured: What a strangely small figure for such a huge disaster. It seems that most either survived or died. Such is the nature of a killer tsunami.
- Over 150,000 buildings damaged or destroyed, including hundreds of schools.
|Strategizing at the CRASH Japan command center|
I'm working full time in the CRASH Japan command center to mobilize the Body of Christ to respond, because I believe we can and should minister to those hurting in Japan. We are gearing up for a long-term recovery effort. We welcome your prayers.
