#Japan earthquake #helicopter rescue

Today, we’ve all been alerted to the devastation in Japan as the result of a 7.3 earthquake. This is undoubtedly one of the biggest tests Japanese rescue workers and those involved in helicopter as 41 people have been killed by two earthquakes and many are missing or trapped in a mountainous area. U.S. forces are offering emergency assistance. Notably, the U.S. has major military bases in Japan that can help.  USA Today just hours ago posted images of the devastation. It is estimated some 1500 are injured and many are presumably trapped in collapsed homes and building. The national government is said to have dispatched 20,000 troops —- many who are especially trained for these kind of rescue efforts.
