The search for lost loved ones in Japan continues and five days later, there is no idea of the true toll of this disaster. In areas like Izumi, nobody knows how many were swept away. The number is in the thousands, perhaps 15,000.
Teams of soldiers, firemen and international rescuers are combing through the wreckage left by the 9.0 quake and subsequent waves of terror in towns and villages along the east coast. But on Wednesday, snow started falling making the job of searching even harder and our donations even more timely.
