108. The Great East Japan Earthquake
Manage episode 342463488 series 3399666
I talked about the Great East Japan Earthquake, which was in 2011. Time flies so fast. It has passed for 11 years quickly.
As a result of the disaster, which caused the triple tragedy of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident, approximately 20,000 people lost their lives and over 2,500 are still officially reported as missing, while a further 6,000 suffered injuries. In total, over 470,000 people were evacuated from their homes. As of the end of November 2021, the number of evacuees decreased to approximately 39,000, among which around 1,000 people are still in temporary housing.
I would like to show our appreciation for all countries to support Japan at that time. It is hard to express our appreciation to Taiwan for how much we thanked and are supported by your warm heart. Thank you so so much. Our government is stupid sometimes, but we never forget the moment your country supported Japan so much. Thank you once again.
