Eagerly waiting for the restoration of water supply

(by Mr. Shinichi Kondo (62), Fisherman, Matsuzaki-cho, Ofunato City)

This tsunami gushed in quite fast, and it was completely different from the one caused by Chilean earthquake years ago. I evacuated onto the railroad, and rescued three people from the second floor of the house floating nearby. My house was flooded above the floor level, but as soon as the electricity was restored, I came back. I hope that the water supply will be restored soon.
