No doubt still jittery after the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami that destroyed much of the Fukushima nuclear power plant, swarms of Japanese people invaded grocery stores and markets leaving bare shelves in their wake, following last week’s deadly quakes near the city of Kumamoto.
As reported by the Daily Mail Online, there were images of empty store shelves everywhere, as locals bought anything and everything they could get their hands on, and scores more waited in line for shelves to be restocked (many remained empty because the stores did not have a great deal of inventory).
A 6.4 magnitude quake struck just days ago, followed by another quake that registered 7.3 just about 36 hours later. The two shocks were thought to have killed at least 41 people, with both quakes taking place near Kumamoto and causing a great amount of damage to homes, buildings, roads and bridges. FULL REPORT
