The aftermath of natural disaster

Almost 3 days passed after the incident occurred, seems there're no signs of reconstruction. Still the society is thrown into confusion. Some mass transit is disrupted (no operations in some lines), so cannot go anywhere.
Still Tsunami is likely to be generated at any time. Aftershock of the earthquake occurred hundreds of times so far...and there also was an explosion at another power plant in Fukushima. Residents are now in uproar and are asked to evacuate nearby.

About blackout, Tokyo Electric Power Company announced that they will implement for about 3 hours respectively by separating into 5 groups. Mine is supposed to be 16:50-19:50 today. During this period, any electronic devices cannot be used. Just wait and see how it goes for awhile.
There still remains to be seen as of tomorrow.

In many convenience stores or supermarkets, many commodities were already sold out as if they were looted, so it's not easy to come by food and drinks if contingency still continues.

We feel like as if we were back in 1940S, where the World War Ⅱ is taken place, it's not too exaggerated at all!
It is obvious that a threatening disaster hampers social activities to a large extent. And there might be another influx of people who are flocking to the refuge here and there, and the casualties are piled up once contingency has happened any time.

Still aftershock happens occasionally, so you cannot be too careful around it!
