Two major earthquakes have left Japan in a state of distress this weekend. As of Saturday morning, at least 41 people were dead and over 1,500 were injured in the deadly disaster.

Japanese media reported that nearly 200,000 homes were without electricity, and that drinking water systems had also failed in the area. TV video showed people huddled in blankets, sitting or lying shoulder-to-shoulder on the floors of evacuation centres. An estimated 400,000 households were without running water.
