Some good news from Japan

However, the delay in providing evacuees with adequate shelter and food in the devastated provinces is taking its toll:

[A]fter nine days without heat, electricity, running water, regular meals or word from their loved ones, there are signs that the extraordinary fortitude of the survivors is being worn down by a widening humanitarian crisis.

Officials in Ishinomaki in Miyagi prefecture, one of the coastal cities wrecked by the tsunami, say the shortages and a painfully slow return of services has led to rising anger at the government and sporadic reports of theft and violent crime.

Please use this as an open thread for more news from Japan.
