私の地震リポートが海外で取り上げられる

え〜、私ごとで恐縮です。

アメリカにある国際的な食料・災害、支援援助団体であるプレムラワット財団に送ったメールが(正確にはそこで働く友人宛て)その団体のブログページで取り上げられる。下記でどうぞ、こんな貧しい英語力の私の文章は恥ずかしい限りであります。

この団体は既に日本のために3万ドルだか30万ドル(全然違う?)の義援金を世界中から集めてくれているようです。日本赤十字や他の団体を通じて必要な物資を東北地方の方々のために送ってくれるそうです。

私、昨年からアースデイ東京でこの団体の活動を紹介する手伝いをしています。

A Letter from Yoshida

Posted on March 15, 2011 by David Gittlin

TPRF received this email from Yoshida, a 54-year-old man in Japan two days after the devastating earthquake and tsunami. Here is his largely unedited message describing the damage from the recent catastrophe and his efforts to reach survivors in northeastern Japan, the hardest hit area.

Dear All:

On 11th March, 3 PM, gigantic earthquake hit east and northern part of Japan. Disaster tsunami hit northern Pacific coast 20 minutes after the earthquake. Probably more than 10,000 people died in this area by tsunami. Earthquake was so big but not so much damage.

A Tiny Survivor of Japan’s Mega Earthquake
I am living in Tokyo. Even Tokyo magnitude was 6, shaking 4-5 minute so strongly that time. On 11th all of the train was stop near Tokyo area whole days. Until today, like a wave on and on, earth quake hit always every 30 minute shake magnitude 1-4 till now. First time for me. I never experience before. I am 54 years old.

17 friends were living in those northern areas, but 9 people are OK!  8 right now unknown their safety yet. Telephone line is broken include mobile phone. No electric and no water or no gas no food and cold, sometime snowing out there. This is the reason no contact with them, especially 3 person living on the coast side northern east of Japan.

I am very afraid for their safety. We will Google and twitter or PC system or NTT phone safety line and national TV station system for safety. Will use to know their safety. Other 5 person is hopefully OK!

But nothing I can do. Freeway is still close and train is stop all the time to northern area. USA, Korea, Taiwan, China, Thai, Singapore, New Zealand, EU and many other country help us. Send rescue team for them. It is great and amazing.

Also nuclear power plant blast off. Two friends with family living 5 km from plant. They must move to 20 km from plant. Lot of things happened here in Japan.

Thank you to TPRF for making a fund for Japan disaster by Tsunami and Earthquake. It would be very hopeful for us. It is makes encourage for us.

Best Wishes

Yoshida
