  • News from Japan 3-31-11

    With apologies to Henk:

    "Panasonic Corp said continuing aftershocks were preventing it from inspecting two factories in northern Japan, one making electronic parts and another digital cameras and audio equipment. It said a lack of proper power and water supply was a potential bottleneck.

    Securing a stable power supply relatively cheaply could prove to be a major hurdle for companies, analysts said." Reuters US online edition

    Let's hope they get back on their feet ASAP, same goes for everyone affected. Seems like they've managed to get off relatively lightly considering the damage done elsewhere.

      Getting factories like this back online is important for the whole community to be able to get back on their feet. They want and need some sort of start of a return to normality.
