Today January 17 is the 17th anniversary of the great Hanshin Awaji earthquake that had about 6500 victims. And about 10 months have passed since March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
A flashlight, paper, blanket and radio are important. Especially a radio which works without electricity is a must. It is said that many tsunami victims on 3.11 did not evacuate to higher places after a massive earthquake. Because power was out and they could not get information of coming deadly tsunami after the earthquake. We have to secure right information. Water is also necessary. A person uses 3 litters a day.
A portable toilet and tent to hide is also helpful. Actually one toilet was shared by more than 1000 people in a shelter after the great Hanshin Awaji earthquake. It is horrible! And plastic wrap can really work in the survival life. It is good to prevent the cold, save water by putting it on the food plate and heal injury by wrapping it after sterilization.
