Monday update: Salvation Army in Japan

Submitted by on March 14, 2011 – No Comment

As reported on Friday, Salvation Army teams in Japan were sent immediately to Sendai to make a damage assessment and prepare for service. The teams report that the trip from Tokyo took 20 hours instead of the usual six hours.

Road and rail systems have been severely affected. There is a gas shortage; many stations are closed and many of those that stayed open have lines of cars up to a mile long.

There are three Salvation Army emergency service relief teams operating in areas devastated by the earthquake and tsunami. One of the teams is assisting people who have been evacuated from areas where there is potential danger because of damage to nuclear power generation stations.
