Japan Relief Efforts Continue ** Updated **

Commissioner Makoto Yoshida, commander of The Salvation Army’s Japan Territory, reports that the country’s recovery from a devastating earthquake and tsunami is “going well,” although he says that ongoing problems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station continue to cause “some uneasiness among the people.” He says that everyday goods—including fuel—are becoming easier to obtain and that around 70 per cent of roads in the disaster zone have now been reopened.

The commissioner adds that the search for missing people is proving to be difficult. Officials report that 15,000 people are still missing, in addition to the 12,000 people known killed in the disaster. Around 166,000 people were evacuated from their homes.
