Welcome

Thank you for the thousands of emails in support of the original translations of Japanese Twitter accounts of the March 11th quake on my Facebook note, "Japan Quake as Seen from Twitter". Now, together with ten classmates and friends in the University of Cambridge, I have launched this blog to continue translating the voices of the Japanese people on their road to recovery.

3 Additional Deaths on April 6th

Three people lost their lives in yesterday’s quake.  One, who was being treated, died from the oxygen inhaler stopping because of the power blackout, and two died of shock.  I pray for the quick restoration of electricity especially for those who depend on medical equipment to survive.   

(Original Japanese Text)
昨夜の地震での死者3人。うち、停電で酸素吸入器が使えなくなった方1名、ショック死2名とのこと。停電が早期に解消され、医療機器を必要とする方に電気が行くことを祈る
