Two weeks after a devastating earthquake and tsunami plunged Japan into its worst crisis since World War II, local refugee families are starting to see their lives restored to some semblance of a daily routine.
As Reuters is reporting, international food aid is flowing and even mobile banks are appearing in some of the northeast Japan's most devastated regions.
Still, specific figures surrounding the disaster are continuing to emerge which are simultaneously shocking and heartbreaking. The death toll topped 10,000 on Friday, with hopes for those who remain missing continuing to dwindle.
