I just hope the best for the people, Factories can be rebuilt!!!!! Children missing as well as adults. High numbers of deaths.Totally feel for them. And as for the corporations there, even if there fine and suffered no damage, the exporting process through the shipping yards is probably a giant mess.

God Bless Them !!!!!!!!

Over 85% of it is Japanese made. Very Japanese indeed.
