Japan Freezing With No Electricity

One of the saddest aspects of the media coverage of the affect of the Japanese earthquakes is the lack of media reporting on how how so many japanese are suffering as Japan is freezing with no electricity for a large number of households.

The Nuclear crisis is diverting attention from the tens of thousands affected by last week's earthquake and tsunami. About 850,000 households in the north without electricity in near-freezing weather.

The Death toll is expected to exceed 10,000 which is shocking for one of the most prepared countries in the world for addressing earthquakes and tsunamies

Man this is really bad, first survive the earthquakes, then tsunami and now having to survive freezing temperatures and lack of supplies. To add to all this the possibility of getting radiation poisoning.

I know in Fiji Japan helped us a lot with a lot of projects and scholarships. Why aren't we doing more and what can we do to help?
