A lots workers were missing their house because of Tsunami.

I confine myself to the emergency measures headquarters ever since hit by the earthquake.
My parents home was along the sea in Hukushima and the whole town were washed by Tsunami.

My parents are still missing, actually I really wanna go search them at once.
But I can't because of its keep out area.

Even the Self-Defense Forces don't go search there.
It's too harsh to work.
I can't endure any more."

Especially the workers at 2F were trying to defend the safety their own plants and also supporting the recovery of 1F.
So it was like a battlefield.

All workers are to the utmost limits.
please understand that."

But the fact that TEPCO is here led to the contamination of radioactivity.

All are leaving their home and can't know when they can go back.
