Even in earthquake-ready Japan, victims struggle to recover (USA Today)

MINAMIASO, Japan — Hiroaki Morio and his family finally moved out of an emergency shelter last week, after living there since April when a massive magnitude-7.3 earthquake left their home damaged and perched on the edge of a cliff.
 
The quake — the second big one in two days — left 95 people dead and more than 2,000 injured. It triggered landslides, wiped out roads and bridges, destroyed or badly damaged 160,000 homes and buildings, causing an estimated $45 billion in damage.
 
Morio, his wife and daughter survived but had no idea when, or if, they’d be able to return home. For more details, click here.
