As many people and as soon as possible

(by Mr. Yoshinori Abe, evacuee from Isobe area, at General Welfare Center in Souma City, Fukushima Prefecture )

Almost all the houses were completely destroyed by the tsunami in Isobe area of Soma City. A massive tsunami gushed into the town with the force of breaking the embankment and washed away the foundations of houses. My family of four was hit by the tsunami on the way to the evacuation center, and my sister did not survive. I just wish they could find as many people as possible for everybody’s sake.
