Search For Missing Continues in Japan as Death Toll Rises

Tokyo (CNN) -- As searches for thousands of missing continued Saturday, police in Japan said more than 7,300 people had died since the monster earthquake and ensuing tsunami struck last week.

On Saturday evening, 7,348 people were confirmed dead, according to Japan's National Police Agency. An additional 10,947 people were missing and 2,603 were injured, the agency said.

Search and rescue efforts have been hampered by snowfall in the hardest-hit areas, said spokesman Patrick Fuller of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

"The cold is a real issue, particularly for the thousands of people in shelters, many of them elderly," he said, describing providing medical care as a "massive challenge."

Quake manual now in 31 languages

Kyodo News

An emergency online earthquake manual had been translated into 31 languages as of Wednesday afternoon by Japanese volunteers to support foreign nationals living in Japan in the wake of Friday's magnitude 9.0 quake.
The manual, whose English title is "Japan earthquake: How to protect yourself," details how to use emergency message services and lists practical advice, such as "move to higher ground if you are near the ocean," as well as goods that should be kept in stock to prepare for the next temblor.
In addition to German, French, Chinese and Korean, there are also versions in the languages of small ethnic groups, including Burmese and Latvian.

You can also donate $10 to the Red Cross by sending a text message with the word "REDCROSS" at 90999. The donation will be charged to your next wireless phone bill.

Apple has posted a donation page on iTunes where you can use your iTunes account to make a secure donation to the American Red Cross and its Japanese relief fund. 100% of donations made through iTunes go to the American Red Cross.

If you don't have an iTunes account or would rather donate directly, there are a list of donation sites at Rick Martin's story and WFAA.com.

We're the world. Together we can!!


Calendar of the Month Club

Now, it's a begining of third month...March. It's a little bit hot in Thailand. I fell that hot season comes earlier this year. I don't like hot weather. It's not comfortable. I wouldn't like to be outside the building during the day.

For the one who plan to visit Thailand at this moment, you should prepare your staffs for protecting sunshine and hot weather. It's time to go to the beach. There're many beautiful beaches in Thailand. 

I found lovely calendar for this month. It's a paper toy calendar. It's a 3D umbrella for March, designed by Curiosity’s one-and-only Sean Garrison
