I thought of John Sypal when news of the earthquake came.
He was off-line for several days. There were a few immediate aftershock images but then nothing. Until this morning.
On Sypal's personal blog images are beginning to emerge of food hoarding in Chiba.
Also he includes a fascinating view into his camera bag, a Domke F3, now loaded for aftershocks and nuclear meltdowns. Like a purse, it gives insight into the state of mind of people in Tokyo.
My good friend, Tiffany Chong, in Kunitachi has confirmed to nearly every news agency in Canada that milk, water and non-perishable food items are cleared off the shelves.
Good luck to both and their friends and families.
