CATDAT-41 latest report on the Great East Japan Quake

Nearly 20,000 dead or missing, 60,000 still living in “temporary” shelters, and over 1500 children who lost parents or guardians. The CATDAT-41 report by the Earthquake Report website spells out many details about the dead, the missing, the costs in money of the destruction, and the effects on Japan.

Absolutely beautiful, I don’t know where this competition was held, but hopefully this Japanese team made it into the finals at the very least.  More like watching a ballet than a gymnastics exhibition, the athletes coordinated almost flawlessly.
