#Japan #Earthquake: Severe Fuel Shortage in Miyagi

According to Mainichi Shinbun (in Japanese, 3/13/2011), fuel shortage is getting severe in Miyagi prefecture, hardest hit in the earthquake/tsunami on March 11. Without fresh supply, major hospitals in Miyagi will run out of fuel by March 15. Broadcasting companies in Miyagi have dwindling supply of fuel for their emergency generators, and may not be able to continue emergency broadcast on TV and radio. The Miyagi Prefectural government is trying to compile a priority list for the fuel distribution.
