We all know of the tragic situation that hit Japan, especially in the Northern area of the country in Fukushima and Miyagi. Where the search and rescue teams still work feverishly to find survivors and many many people are left without homes and/or electricity, gas, food and water.
In the world of SNS (Social Network Media) people are doing their best to help by listing where information can be found on the net. After checking all of them this quick blog will try to help point people (living in Japan, those worried about loved ones or simply those who would like to help) in the right direction for up to date information on current events as well as ways they can give aid.
