“Japanese need your help”

World Care Civilian Emergency Relief Center of Tucson is on high alert to assist

An 8.9 earthquake hit Japan, March 11, 2011. As aftershocks continue to hit the region, assessments of the tsunami will continue to come in over the next week. Thousands of bodies are reported to have washed ashore and worse yet nuclear power plant melt downs are increasing.

World CaWorld Care is collaborating with FEMA Region 9 to manage civilian volunteers and supply aid to affected regions if needed. Region 9 includes Hawaii, California, Arizona, Nevada, Guam, the North Mariana Islands, the Republic of Marshall Islands, Federal State of Micronesia, and American Samoa.

Rescue workers combed the tsunami-battered region north of Tokyo, where officials say at least 10,000 people were killed in the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that followed it.

“It’s a scene from hell, absolutely nightmarish,” said Patrick Fuller of the International Red Cross Federation from the northeastern coastal town of Otsuchi.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan has dubbed the multiple disasters Japan’s worst crisis since World War Two and, with the financial costs estimated at up to $180 billion, analysts said it could tip the world’s third biggest economy back into recession.

Early warning systems and FEMA evacuation plans have been very effective in Hawaii and California so that casualties and injuries caused by this disaster are prevented or minimized.

World Care encourages civilians within communities to be ready to respond when disasters strike. It is currently working in partnership with local and state government agencies in a city-wide effort to develop a disaster communications plan and training.

Fifth largest earthquake in the 20th century and the largest since the Japanese have begun taking recordings in the 18oos.  See video.

Please if you cannot give any of the things World Care needs then sent light, love, comfort and support to all suffering people and animals everywhere. Thank you-Mother Nature
