He torutoru te kai, te moenga ohotata hoki whai muri mai i nga rū whenua e toru kua kōruirui i te whenua o Hapani mai i tera Taite.Engari mo tetahi uri no Uawa e noho ana ki reira, kaore he raru te tawhiti, te taraiwa tata noa i te 15 nga haora hoki i te taha o tana hoa tane, i runga i te tono ki te awhina i nga tangata ki reira ki Kumamoto.

E ai ki a Sarah McCann kei te noho etahi hau kainga ki wāhi kē, "This is the big complex that these people aren't allowed back in. So all of these cars are actually people living in it."

He toro atu i te ringa awhina mo nga whanau e pāngia ana e ngā rū ki Kumamoto, kua panaia i o ratou kainga, e noho kainga kore ana hoki.

"They've had about 30 different tremors daily since that earthquake. There's still quite a lot of unrest, people are still really unsettled. The evacuation centres can't take everybody at the moment so they've got the elderly people and kids,” hei tā McCann.

Tata noa i te 500 nga tangata i awhinatia e Sarah raua ko Enson i te rā kotahi. Ko to raua kaenga he kotahi mano e rua rau kiromita te tawhiti, pātata atu ki Tokyo.

Hei tā McCann, "I know there is some frustration, especially from those people in the parking lots because the government isn't doing enough to help right now. Some of them are still mataku. A lot of them are kind of in desperation mode, they don't have access to things like water or simple food.”

E 100-kiromita te tawhiti atu ki Kumamoto, kua pau ngā kai i nga toa me te kore mohio ahea ka whakakī ano.

"We're at the 7-11 at the moment and a lot of them have signs like this. So you're only allowed to take two drinks per person. So we're in line here, we've got a water and they also have a system here where they're only letting in a certain amount of people into the store. So it's a form of crowd control," hei tā McCann.

I tenei wa tonu kei te hoki te tokorua nei ki te kaenga, he ngenge te tinana, he mahana te manawa. He hiahia to raua ki te hoki mai a te marama o Hune.
