Response to the tsunami-hit areas in northern Japan has been quick and efficient.
The Tohoku area is not anywhere near a recovery phase, however only 3 weeks after
the tsunami stuck Northern Japan, access to and from the small towns worst struck by the tsunami have been opened thanks to the quick effort of the emergency response teams clearing major roads and reopening some local train lines.
Many NGO operations such as “Peace Boat” and Medical teams, from around the world
are now able to set up camps and are now able to start helping the locals. Help to and from Sendai via the Tohoku expressway, is clearly on the way by the large amount of traffic into the area. This is still only the beginning, none the less it is a start.
