    I live in a region where something similar can happen.

    Thank you. There's Hamaoka nuclear plant within 60 miles from Mt. Fuji. It's been said that possible Tokai earthquake would affect that plant.

    Wonderful! And it's good to know that those dogs already got treatment.

    I just hope they bring them back together when the white one is well enough. They deserve to be together after all that.

    For now (and I looked this up so I don't know if I'm correct) I want to name them Koumyou and Hogosha. It's supposed to mean Hope and Protector. Sora, did I get that right?

    I seen this on the news yesterday and i about cried at hearing that the one dog got the attention of the searchers and had them follow it back to the other wounded dog. Now if that is not a scene of partnership, I dont know what is people. And im not sure if you got the names right Tay... but Hope and Protector fit after seeing that video. If someone adopts those two, those names would be perfect!!

    Japan is a small country, there's nowhere to move. Besides, here're guys who've been risking their life to prevent meltdown. We shouldn't freak out or leave them behind in this difficult time.

    Radioactive materials wouldn't reach your country in harmful levels. You guys in the States will be OK.

    Here's a set of pics of Operation Tomodachi now US Armed Forces and Japan Self Defence Forces are providing. They're doing really good job. We truly thank America.

    .
    I have been lurking daily to check up and make sure you are OK sora...... And the above statement is 100% correct!!

    Having lived through a nuclear accident myself ( This plant was in my back yard basically..we used to fish in the waters right around it)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Mile_Island_accident
    I kinda know what you are going through. Though this was no where close to being as bad..it could have been. It just seems that many people here have forgotten about this.

    We have been talking about this quite a bit at work and I am amazed at the number of us who said we would GLADLY open our homes and lives to those who need it. And as for locally here.. Everyone is doing anything we can to send aid and help out those in need.
    I know a=of a couple fund raisers that are going on right now to raise money to get supplies and send over..though it seems like we can't get it out there fast enough.

    Sora.. Thank you for the updates..you and EVERYONE there is in many of our hearts and prayers.

    The latest news about the Fukushima plant are really promising. Little by little things are looking better and better.
    A huge bow and admiration to the 300 engineers that work at the plant and try to fix it and save a whole nation. These are the real life heroes!!!
