I stand corrected. About half the town's population of 20,000 people in Minami Sanriku-cho is missing- about 10,000 people. Still tragic.
Misawa Community- Power is slowly being restored to the local off base community. Efforts are underway to restore Misawa Air Base service. As the electrical system recovers, there may be intermittent outages, however, we look forward to having power to Misawa Air Base restored very soon.

Yup...same report on BBC news TV... they say 10,000 but I dont think we need to quibble over 500 .
They were showing this village these people are missing from.. before and after photos.. it is shocking.
Hey there Extralien, I saw those pictures too ... it really brings home the impact of the devastation ... I can't even begin to imagine where or how these poor people are going to start to put their lives back together.
CNN (cable) was reporting moments ago that one location is reporting over 9,000 people missing.
When you look at the devastation, and realize how densely populated some of these places were, you can see how the loss of life will be massive.
