The next story shows that normal things were supposed to happen on the day of Japan’s Earthquake. The story is called “Earthquake Graduation Trip” by Momona Yamagami from The American School in Japan. Obviously, the story was about how her class was taking a trip to Disneyland the day the earthquake happened. That just goes to show you that situations like these could happen unexpectedly. So, we would have to be prepared for such a thing. I don’t know much about this (I wasn’t there) but I think (from what an outsider can guess) that Japan mildly prepared. As it is for everything (and I’m sure that other countries are just as prepared), there can be improvement. I’m not sure if Japan has this already, but I think that the handling of natural disasters can improve if Japan stores food rations. I heard the stories of people rushing to the stores and finding that there’s nothing left. That way, some families might not even have the chance to get supplies.
The next story is written about the fear that traveled through the country, This story is called “March 11th, 2011: an unforgettable experience of fear” by Lisa Takagi The American School in Japan. This person was in Tokyo and there it was still a 5.0 magnitude quake. It would make people in Tokyo a little fearful that the center of the quake was many kilometers away but they still got a 5.0. I think that the people of Tokyo have a right to worry. If an earthquake that happened many kilometers away shook another area (almost as hard) then, what would happen if that occurred in a place that isn’t use to earthquake warnings?
