More than 300,000 people are sleeping on cots in shelters after the earthquake that hit northern Japan nearly three weeks ago. The aftermath that could last ten years or more. Seismologists say it's the 5th largest quake measured since 1900. With more than 440,000 people originally placed in shelters, even though about 10,000 are released each day, numbers of people in dire straights are still high. "We’ve got 360,000 to 370,000 people sleep on cots in Japan who may not ever be able to go home. So this is definitely a human tragedy if not just an economic one." Executive Director Tom Farley says there are some 2 million Red Cross volunteers trained to respond, but he adds it will ten years or more for the people to recover from the trauma. “Some of that's emotional. You're sitting in a shelter, you don't know where you're mom is, and so some of that is rebuilding not just homes but neighborhoods that have been wiped out and so the International Red Cross has experience in this kind of disaster response.” If you've like to help victims of the earthquake in Japan, there are three ways to donate to the Red Cross: call 1-900 Red Cross, go to www.redcross.org , or simply text the number 90999 and a $10 donation will automatically be billed to you.
