And it was hit pretty hard by a huge Tsunami.
Unfortunately for the locals, a lot of the resources were diverted or sent to Sendai leaving Hach short. There are anti-hoarding laws here in Japan so locals are not allowed to have food storage. And apparently the grocery stores are now empty.
On Sunday, Pres. B. announced in church that we would be collecting supplies to take to Hach.
Misawa Mormons were asked to donate food and warm blankets.
(And many of our friends and neighbors donated too.)
My Husband went with some other branch members (including some of the youth)
and took the donations to the L.D.S. church building in Hachinohe.
This is the e-mail I got tonight:
