Devastation in Japan- 8.9 Earthquake update

"Japanese news media estimates of the death toll ranged between 1,300 and 1,700, but much of the north was impassible. Four passenger trains had not been accounted for as of Saturday night, The Associated Press reported. Most of the deaths were from drowning, but firefighters and Japan’s Self-Defense Forces were rushing to prevent a higher toll, flying in helicopters and struggling to put out fires ignited by exploding gas lines or overturned space heaters in Japan’s many vulnerable wooden homes."
